I have absolutely no idea
how much work this would be or how much this would cost, so please don't take me too seriously. Or at all seriously, for that matter. This is just the 1911 I'd like to see come to fruition. I don't know if Fusion is the company to do it or not, but it looks to me like you'd be capable of doing it.
Here's my (somewhat skewed) thought process:
1) Nighthawk Custom is discontinuing the Vickers Tactical in March of '08 because Larry Vickers (and apparently their customers) thought it wasn't being offered at a fair enough price.
2) Your company seems to be selling incredible quality 1911s for a really good price, so you could probably make a pistol just as good for a more acceptable price.
3) The 1911 would include most of the same features, for example Caspian frame with integral magwell, lanyard loop and plunger tube, solid Aluminum trigger (they used a Vickers/Yam "Hard Use" trigger), high cut beavertail, commander "match" hammer, ball cuts, Novak sights, simonich gunner grips, 25 LPI checkering, serrated top and rear of slide, matte black finish, muzzle crowned flat to bushing, and NO MIM PARTS ANYWHERE. Full details here:
Here's another pistol using the same frame & design, the D&L Professional:
4) Advertise it as a pure, simple, Murphy's Law-proof fighting pistol. Ship it with, say, six 7-round mags with steel followers and baseplates + slam pads (Brown, Tripp) like the SA TRP Pro, an extra extractor, even extra recoil and FP springs.
Again, I'm nowhere CLOSE to an expert, but I'd be willing to bet a couple months' salary that you'd sell a load of these pistols. Look how popular the Vickers Tactical and D&L Professional are, and those cost 3 and 4 thousand dollars.
Just my opinion, let me know what you think, don't hold back (*straps on flame suit, assumes brace position*)....
