    I have had Beretta's, CZ's and a variety of Military surplus but never a 1911 style. Caliber 45 wasn't something that I wanted simply because I am set up, reloading wise, with 9mm and 40. I have nothing against 45. I settled on the Fusion Brand and ended up seeing and purchasing the 4.25 9mm Combat model at a local gunshow today. It came with the Range bag, 2 magazines, spring and tool. The trigger feels really nice compared to my other pistols and I am looking forward to getting it cleaned up and some range time. I have lots to learn about maintenance and care of this what I think is a sharp looking pistol.

    Nothing quite as nice as a Commander. Am I correct in assuming the frame is steel?

    Nice, let us know how it shoots.
    I'm not familiar with the Fusion brand but yours looks good.

    Nice 1911! 1911's are addictive. I have many guns but the only gun style have have more than one of is the 1911. I have 3 now and am looking for more.

    Yes. They. Do.

    Surprisingly quickly, too. ;)

    Congratulations on a nice purchase, you’ll really enjoy it. When you get a chance to exercise it at the range let us know how it shoots for you :thumbup:.

    Stay safe.

    I read the owners manual and did a field strip and clean this afternoon. Yes I launched the recoil spring plug whilst reassembling. It won't be the last time I'm sure. Drove to the range and fired 70 rounds before it got too dark. 50 rounds of Win white box and 20 rounds of MBC coated reloads. All ran without a hitch. Trigger is very nice. I am not a great shot but managed softball size groups at 7-10 yrds. All in all I am pleased with this and some of the buyers guilt is starting to wear off.

    A 1911 wrench will help with preventing the plug from flying. 45 acp and the 10mm plugs are the worse for flying. Stronger springs.

    I'm glad that the OP shot well and enjoyed the shooting.

    It's no coincidence that so many of us here on THR enjoy owning and shooting them.

    I've never bought into any kind of mystique about them. I just find them to be very pleasant and accurate to shoot. :)
