Are you basing that on something in addition to what is being discussed here?

And you have proof? Or it's just your opinion?

Well considering when you buy parts from "Fusion" you are getting other manufacturers parts, what more proof do you need?

Well, I dunno, Casp' - re-badging parts for re-sale seems to be a common, commonly known, and generally accepted practice in the industry. What has been pointed out earlier in this thread, though, is quite another matter - and enough on its own to make me back up.

Best,
Jon

Same with Wilson and many others.

Have you been wronged by Fusion? Do you have any experience with their parts?

...or are you talking out your bee-hind?

That's not shaddy, manufacturers rebadge their products for any company who wants to sell the products under their own brand. It's common in all industries....It's called private label.

No never wronged, but I have noticed that when you order things as mentioned you don't get what they advertise. , I know there are lots of rebadging around, Wilson, Ed brown, but it is the mis-representation that gets me.

I've only returned a few parts to Midway.

A pair of STI ambi safeties were among them. The shafts were as cast and filled with pits.

I have a Fusion slide that looks exactly like the Auto Ardinance ones you get from Numrich.

This thread is informative and kind of scarey.

Putting another name on parts you made is one thing. Buying cast parts and claiming they're CNC'ed in your plant is another.

So, it appears to be a "You pays yer money and take yer chances' thing with Fusion. There is enough information and opinion in the thread for someone to make his/her own decision about Fusion parts.

There is no further need to continue a thread that has turned into a bash Fusion party.
