    ...I've still got to prep it for finish.

    The Playoffs have taken up most of my free time the past few weekends but yesterday I mostly finished off two builds.

    The Fusion frame was spec as the day is long. After line-reaming the important holes and blowing out the ejector hole a bit (not that an ejector is needed for a dedicated rimfire 1911) the parts just 'fell in'. The trigger pull needs to be lightened up a bit but the pistol fired a mag with no FTFs straight away. One thing that needs addressing though, the Hogue aluminum MSH ($50!!!) might have to go as the pistol is so light that it needs some weight in the *** for balance.

    The checkering / texture on the grip is a bit much, I will sand off the points a bit.
