Finally have enough ammo down the pipe to get a good feel for the gun and to consider it broken in. So now to get down to some serious shooting, I have put 400 rounds through it cleaning the barrel after every round for the first fifty and after every 10 rounds for the next 150 rounds. followed by every 50 rounds for the next two hundred. With that said I went out to the range the other night to see what I could do with it now that I have a feel for the gun and the sights. All and all the gun has performed perfectly no FTF or FTE through 450 rounds. I am shooting real nice groups at 12 yards with remington green box.



This was my best 8 round mag of the night @ 12 yards but most of the groups were similar in size. :biglaugh:

Looks like yours shoots very nicely like mine does. I have about 800 rounds through mine now. Just got in a bulk ammo shipment of 1000 rounds from Georgia Arms, the best prices I have found so far.

Excellent 8 rd print. I am really new to Fusion so I need to learn as much as I can. That is a good looking gun too.

Question...I have a safe full of wheel guns and Plastic Fantastics (Read: Glocks & Sigs). I have just ordered my first 1911, a Fusion in 10mm. Is this type of "break in" (cleaning after every shot for the first 50, etc) required? If so, is your model a good model to follow?

Not required, I just break in all new barrels that way.

Its the general rule to break in rifle barrels like this, however, I've never heard of anyone doing this with a pistol, even a custom pistol, for that matter.

Still, it couldn't hurt I just feel it unneccesary for a pistol.

To each his own, though. :shades:

Habit, I do it to all barrels. I Just bet it can't hurt to be on the safe side of things. It was very simple, I used a bore snake
