10man,

Welcome to the forum.

Fusion firearms are the best 6 inch 10mm for the money. Now to which of the Fusions, could you provide some details as to you desired usage? Hunting, target, defense, etc?

I like your style, 10man! (I'm a longslide fiend, also). As for which Fusion Longlside, its going to be up to personal preference.

hi nicke10mm
ya there the way to go,what kind do you have?
I realy like the 1911 longslides and im going to get one of those fusions,I just dont know what on one would be best. some come with different parts in them,and i havent had a real custom 1911 pistol yet i have the springfeild longslide but want a 10mm custom longslide, I want one to shoot in the same hole at 25 yards if i do my part.:) or do you think that all the modles are capble of it?

Its the ONLY way to go, actually!! :) I had one of the Glock 20L's but sold it because I couldn't get it running 100% reliable and a pistol that doesn't run 100% is of no use to me. Still, it was a great gun. (I kept the G20 but sold the upper).

You should take a family portrait of your longslides!

In answer to your question about one hole groups at 25y, I DO think that they are COMPLETELY capable of that magic 1" group at 25y. I'm the same as you. Accuracy is my goal with longslides. I shot some crazy groups with my G20L .... Plus, I hunt deer with my 10mm's... out to about 50 yards.

As far as what to choose... here are my approximate picks and considerations if that might start you on your quest:

flat top slide (cosmetic, depends on slide used by Fusion)

squared VERSUS circle trigger guard? (depends on frames Fusion uses)

solid white trigger (like my RZ, cosmetic)

bomar rear adjustable sight

thin front FO sight

NO ambi safety (i'm a hunter!)

NO magwell chute (no need & requires bumpers on mags)

countersunk slide stop pin hole (cosmetic)

Black pistol with stainless small parts? or all black?

Greider slide stop (personal requirement of mine)

grip checkering VERSUS design ("scales") checkering?

ball cuts (Fusion already has this I think)


Hope this helps!
Nick

I might get one of those Lone Wolf G20 longslides (if they ever get released) but a longslide 1911 is really my true interest.
