    Beautiful, but i don't think i could spend that much on a Fusion... and i am an avid fan of Fusion products

    Especially one that i didn't spec out myself, unless by some rare chance that it is 100% the way you would of wanted it.

    Id love to own it, especially being a bobtail but i think my ceiling would be 1,800 if it truly was as nice as it shows in pics and in the description.

    It would be nice if people could have a legit discussion without it turning into a total a bash fest.

    Some here hate fusion, some here love fusion. Why does it always have to be a fight?

    Mine too.. for $1400 :whistling:

    thats why i gave an honest answer that $2200 is too much for me for a fusion. Just like i can't justify the price of the new Dan Wessons, but i love my PM7 and CBOB back when they were at the 1k range.

    prices on everything are climbing. sucks :crying:

    Yeah, prices have gone up across the board, but Fusion and Dan Wesson are now overpriced, in my opinion.

    If not overpriced, they certainly aren't the values they once were.

    Ain't that the truth!... The DW's especially i guess were just too good to be true.

    Im jumping on a couple of Metro Arms American Classic II's in hard chrome while the prices are still low.

    Metro builds a nice 1911. They may be the best Filipino 1911s around, other the STI Spartan, which uses many STI parts.

    No Fusion is worth 2K. Heck I probably wouldn't give you half of that. They are the Taurus of the semi-custom world, lots of fluff and little substance.

    I agree with the above posts. There are many recent horror stories about Fusion pistols lately. There are just too many other quality, proven pistols that can be had at that price point, in my opinion.

    Why on earth would you spend $2,195 on a Fusion bobtail when you can spend $2,195 on an Ed Brown Kobra Carry? :dunno:

    I still like the DW's even for the price considering their the only one's not using MIM, but you guys are right, prices are climbing!!

    I dunno if it's their QC but their philosophy. Here's the thing, I'm not worried about something that got by the builder but the fact that people are tearing down their Fusions and they have little fitting on the internals, raises and eyebrow with me. Obviously, their cosmetics (beavertail) need work too, but if I pay $1500 and up on a 1911 there better be better fitting on the internals to say the very least. Couple that with guys that are getting guns that wont chamber factory ammo? Yet they have fired cases in the box? That tells me that significant corners are being cut.

    To the OP, I don't think I'd pay that much for it. I would probably think about it for the $1,600 or thereabouts range, but it would have to be spot on to get that.
    For what it's worth, I have two Fusion builds, and both are quite nice and good shooters. The second isn't quite as well built as the first one (done about a year apart), so I'm just a little cautious about new ones. If it floats your boat, then I'd make an offer and see what happens.
    Good luck!

    Sarge,
    Did you ever send yours sent back to get made like you ordered it? And get the fire controls fixed?
