I've heard nothing but good about Fusion parts, a lot of guys over on the big 1911 forum love them to death, I don't think you could go wrong.

All I've read about them has been positive. They offer an Alloy Lightweight Commander
frame that grabbed my attention. I am thinking about a commander 45 for CCW.

I don't have any personal experience with Fusion, but I have read quite a bit about them. They offer some pretty expensive firearms, but from what I've read, they don't seem to be of the quality of a Baer, Wilson, etc., even though they cost about the same.

They also seem to have really poor customer service, so if you have problems you're in for a long wait. Some people will swear by them, but at the price offered there are better options in my opinion.

Fusion Firearms? - Glock Talk

Here's some fellows with a little more experience than myself on the subject.

Fusion firearms is owned by the same guy who used to own Dan Wesson before CZ took over, Bob Serva. Personal experience has been positive.

Someone told me that Fusion's receivers are made by ATI.

I searched around just a little Steve, and I really couldn't find many. I saw Caspian had a titanium frame, which would be lightweight and strong, but I think it was about $400. I'm sure with some more extensive searching you could find a less expensive aluminum frame, not sure what your price range is.

Colt of course makes them, but I couldn't find the frames on their website, maybe you could contact them. Armscor dosen't seem to have an aluminum frame, nor does STI. :dunno:

Thanks for the heads up, I honestly was not aware of the issues that are associated with Fusion, I had always heard nothing but good things, now I know better.

I only became aware of this recently myself. If you've ever read through the stuff on the 1911 forum you'd think Fusions were great. Apparently the owner, Bob Serva I think, hangs out there and has some pull with the Mods, because nothing negative can be posted about Fusion. I've even heard from a couple guys who said they were banned from that site just for posting the problems they encountered with their Fusions.:thumbsdown:

yeah, on the 1911 forum they will not tolerate anybody having bad words about someone who puts money in the sites pocket. i was long ago banned from that site for having a run in with the idiot who was president of charles daly, i caught the man in a lie, and i got banned. where's charles daly now!!! HA ha!
