I was considering a Fusion... but I've read that some people were unhappy with their recent offerings.
Any ideas or links to good a smith?
Right now the only choice you have for a 1911 commander in 10mm is Fusion. I did contact them a couple of weeks ago about a build and was told something around 20-24 weeks, which along with the comments I've read recently on quality and not meeting the delivery schedules made my decision not to go with them a little easier.
I've contacted NightHawk and was told:
"[...]We build any of the full size pistols in 10mm<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
We can not find a stout enough recoil spring for proper reliability in the commander size pistols in 10mm.[...]"
The only option I found for a commander in 10mm is to have a full custom.
