Well here she is. Just picked her up a few hours ago. I know the pics suck, but its Minnesota and the daylight dies very fast. Had to take pics under the oven exhaust fan. I will post more and better pics later but I am so pleased I just have to share. Aren't those grips about the best you have ever seen. I had Dave and Dale add the stainless magwell. Anyway you should be expecting a range report soon.

Again, Thanks Bob and Dale, you are a pleasure to work with.

I'm gonna have to try that "oven exhaust fan" lighting technique!! Those are great pics!

Glad you're happy Snagglepuss. We do expect the range report no matter how cold it is outside. :wink:

Again, Thanks for the support!

O My Gosh that gun looks fantastic, just awesome.

Everything I have seen from Fusion is just top shelf.

Congrats man, that is one fine pistol, or as Darth Vader would say...
"Impressive..... MOST impressive...." (breathing sound)....

THIS is the definition of the Great American 10mm hunting Auto Pistol! That is what Bob and Dale work the whole day through to accomplish!

I love that pistol! :flag:

Very nice, Bob does great work for a reasonable price. Waiting to see what the Officers looks like, will then have to choose between the Officers and the Longslide.

Nice looking pistol.
I agree...I been looking at those myself, so Dale and Bob...you will be hearing from me. But I'm still going to get me a 45 Colt wheelgun first.

Took her down tonight, cleaned and lubed everything. It really didn't need it though, but I always follow the manual. I will be heading to the range tomorrow night and will let you guys know what I think. I firmly believe we already know what I am going to say. Thanks for all the wows and support. I really believe in this company as I do in Dan Wesson. Although I think Fusion is on a whole different level.

I, again, agree! This is what Bob and Dale can do when they let their talents run amok! :biggrin: I'd be willing to bet that this pistol will perform like a champ with Double Tap's 200-grain loads!

Please, dont even bother to clean the pistol before posting the results of your range report. I can hardly wait! (This is going to be better than Christmas morning!) :biglaugh: :cool:

Sorry Scott, I teach 8th graders and after today, the third day before break, I came home and took a short nap. Three and a half hours.:sleepy: Missed the range.

I will be shooting 200 and 180g DoubleTaps.

Thanks for the nice comments

Fusion XM-10 Tactical Longslide Range Report





Went the the range today for the first shoot. Brought along a box of 180g RNFP and one box of 200g XTP's from Double Tap. Also brought along 100 misc. 165g rounds, both round and hollow point. The supplied mags, metalform I think, loaded smoothly and surprisingly easy with all ammo.

Just to let you know I am no super shooter. My range goes out to 50' so thats the greatest distance I have shot. My normal distance, if I want to hit paper, is 25 to 35 feet. I rarely shoot at anything less than 20. I am not a great shot but when I compare my accuracy over time I can tell when I am shooting good or bad.

I started with the 180's at 20 feet. The gun felt awesome, unbelievable, and accurate for me. Was shooting about one inch to the left but a great grouping. The slide racked very smooth and upon release made a nice solid sound as it pushed a round into the chamber. I continued to adjust my distance between 20 and 35 feet and was very impressed. Not one problem with these rounds. Accuracy continued to be excellent.

On to the 200g hollow points. Again, not one problem. As a comparison I brought my DW 10mm CBOB. Loaded two mags and shot. Accuracy went down as I expected and the webbing of my hand started to notice the punch. Back to the Longslide, after the CBOB it felt like I was shooting a 9mm. Added mass really helped.

Now I usually will put the target out to 50' once in a range session to see how I could do. At this distance my old eyes see a blurry blob as the target. No ring lines or any detail. Shot one mag and pulled it in. 5 of 8 rounds in a center four inch grouping, a first for me. Next I tried the CBOB, 2 on the 5 inch target and the other 6 either on cardboard or missed all together.
I am impressed.

Trigger seemed to lighten up a bit. Didn't feel like a 3 3/4 pull when I started but defiantly felt that way later.

:eek:I do have one major concern however. One of the grip screws loosened up a bit. What a shame.

I will break her down this weekend and see how things moved against each other.

Oh, by the way, my CBOB is my "go to" carry gun and I love it very much. Overall I get great accuracy out of it. In no way was i trying bash it above. Just needed something to compare to.

I will continue with more pics and updates.
Yeah, I got the targets but you ain't gonna see'm till I get better with the gun.:whistle:

Overall I will say this is the highest quality gun I own. Every detail is near perfect, heads and tails above any of my other handguns. I do believe I have a new favorite.
