Ordering a Fusion

Have you ever ordered direct off of the Fusion website (shipped to an FFL, of course) or have you gone through a dealer?

I ordered a Fusion kit with some parts and had it shipped to my local FFL. I did it by phone though, since I had questions. Didn't go through a dealer.

Always call or email and ask for a quote then send 50% deposit to Fusion.
Never had a problem. Tyler always picks up or returns my calls.
Great product & customer service!

Thank you, chuck138. I sent sales an email, too late for today's business hours, but I bet they get back to me tomorrow then.

I bought my Bantam from Brownells. They were running a 10% off special and placed the cost below Fusion's retail price. I would check the various dealers first.

Thank you, all. Fusion emailed me back right away today, and the ball is moving forward.

I bought a 10mm barrel from them to convert a Kimber frame to 4" length. Found I needed to do more work than I wanted, so I contacted Fusion, sent frame etc. to them, and had them do the work. Took a while, but I am so far satisfied with the work. Tyler always responded to emails promptly.

I bought 2 freedom series pistols from their website and another from a local dealer. I have been very satisfied and saving for a Fusion long-slide. If you want upgrades or any factory changes I just called in and had the modifications done before it was shipped to my dealer. I use lots of their parts, their customer service is extremely good and they are nice to work with. It seems when I call I generally get someone from the family that works their.

Tyler and really the entire fusion group just make it easy to work with them, very accommodating!

I built a 9mm longslide a couple of years ago and added a bunch of options, several that I didn’t care for once I got it and Tyler just bent over backwards to get me what I wanted. Just a great gun that’s easy to shoot and way more accurate than I am. Several friends bug me all the time wanting to buy it after shooting it.

Highly recommended people at fusion !

On my 9mm longslide it took longer than the 6 wks quoted time (can’t remember exactly but it was longer) since they run the longslide in batch’s. Unless they’ve changed things.

I was fairly impatient as I was wanting my gun, it was worth the wait ! I’ll also add that I could’ve bought a DW or a Baer for about what I spent but I also checked most of the options box’s.

Again it was well worth the wait,,,, it’s a great piece!

Finally "wrung it out," and could not be happier. They screwed up the sights, but a quick replacement with a front sight on hand fixed the problem, (for the most part) and the resulting pistol is now my edc. Make sure that they know what you want. I sent several emails to Robert Serva, then finally to Tyler. Somewhere between all of the emails, the sights were lost. Like I said, a change via a local vendor, to a sight on hand, and a change to an 18 lb spring they supplied, has resulted in an excellent 10mm pistol.

My next Fusion will be a kit, I want to get into a full build myself. Still deciding what I want. I have 2 Freedom series now and Reaction 5 inch and Combat commander and love them. I had a 3rd, the CCO in 9mm but my buddy wanted it so bad I sold it to him. So, I will probably go with a CCO or Long-slide kit next.

I recently placed an order for a 9mm CCO and was given a time frame of mid to end of July.

So far, this experience has been just as smooth as my first Fusion order almost a decade ago. Tyler is very patient and responsive to questions.

A question for rserva should he re-visit this thread: I have a 6" Freedom Series in .45 acp on order, and have toyed with the idea of also ordering a 6" slide assembly in 10 mm to have on hand in order to swap between the 2 calibers using that same frame. Would I need a different slide stop, such as one of your 9mm / 10 mm slide stops, in order to retain slide lock function between the 2 different calibers?

We have some YouTube videos out on these topics, See our YouTube >> Fusion Firearms

But in short, because of the ejector, slide stop and several other items, this can be done, but not a goo idea. If you were to build a 10mm and say, .357 Sig, or 40 S&W, that would be better because they use the same ejector and other parts. . Good question

I don't know how I missed this answer when you posted, but I did eventually see it. Thank you for that explanation, rserva. I am very committed to the .45 caliber so I likely won't venture into any other offerings, but it was something to think about while I wait for my .45 to arrive.
