Tell me about Fusion 1911s.....

So I know a little about this brand and have recently looked around on the website and I am very curious since it appears to me to be made of very nice parts and are all US made. Does anyone here know anything about the degree of hand fit and blend these guns exhibit? I am interested in buying one to see how it compares to Springfield, Colt and RIA but wanted to ask around first to see if owners like the guns and how they are made since I have never seen one in person.

The .380 versions work okay? I don't have a 1911 in that caliber yet and was thinking of a freedom line GI spec gun in that caliber to play with.

I'm not sure I'm qualified to compare my Fusion to other 1911s, other than to my own DW ECO. My Fusion is a 45 acp CCO (https://forums.1911forum.com/showthread.php?t=329565), and the ECO is 9 MM. In my opinion, the Fusion CCO is the better of the two, but it is hard for me to quantify. I really appreciated the fact that I got to specify every detail of my build .......right or wrong. I have no idea about a .380 chambering, and what challenges that presents.

I always like to look of the Fusions...But just looking now, looks like their Pro-Series prices have gone up a bit since last time I visited their site maybe 3 years ago. They are pretty much in the #3K bucket now (albeit some are less expensive). That is fine as long as the bring the "love" with the price. I'd be interested in levels of accuracy at 25Y and shootability (overall) people are getting.

I have 3 of the Freedom Series pistols and didn't spend more than $800. Brand new in a sweet range bag. They have all been great shooters and more accurate than I am. I'm Saving for a Long-slide next in 10mm, they are a bit more pricey about $1100 or so. I'll let you know when I get my Long-slide.

I've got a dozen 1911's or so and one is a Fusion 6" 10mm. For me it's hard to tell the difference between a gold cup, TRP, DW or Fusion trigger. They're all exceptional. Overall they're pretty good guns. On my gun, the ION bond finish didn't hold up well at all so there's that.

The fit and finish is pretty good for a semi custom gun. I'd say that they're generally superior (except the finish) to the bigger manufactures BUT, if I were going to buy a Fusion or a Gold Cup, I'd probably go with the Colt because of re-sale value and name recognition. Just my .02.

Also considering Fusion. They say on their site that their frames and slides are made from bar stock. Does that mean they are forged? Or can bar stock be made by casting? Is the material carbon steel? I’d like to have the option of bluing the gun.

My only experience with 1911's are a Remington and Colt wartime issued. Both nice and much spent to get the parts right. I dont carry a 1911 so my experience is limited, got these on a trade of sorts. Now that im reading, interested in seeing what my old eyes can group. I do keep an old Astra a100 in the truck, had it so long dont remember shooting it

I have 3 Freedom series Fusion's, they are all great shooters and a good value for the $. I don't have a Pro-Series, I believe these are the custom shop line-up. I am now saving for a Freedom series kit to build my own. I also, added one of their 38 Super barrels to my 9mm Fusion Combat, now I have it for 9mm & 38 Super shooting. Fun pistols.
