I hear great things about the Fusion frames and parts. What was your experience putting yours together? Did the internals fit OK, or take some fitting?

How about the ramp and the rails?

I have several spare slides and have been toying with the idea of building a couple of Fusions.

Thanks in advance, Dan.

It looks good. Did you have any parts left over? ;)

I don't know if my frame was an earlier frame. I had some trouble with the mag release, and grip safety (using Ed Brown parts). Ramp and rails were in spec and not touched at all. Very little slide movement side to side or up and down before DuraKote was applied(had to clean it up a little after DuraKote).
I purchased the setup on gunbroker from someone who bought the frame and then added other parts from places like CDNN. The parts I bought to replace the unknown originals are all Ed Brown, springs are all from Ed Brown (bought through Brownells.)
So, yes I did have some parts extra. :)
What I have:
Fusion Frame, Unknown barrel, unknown slide, Ed Brown. Only problems I've seen so far is that I can't get to the range enough with it to do a thorough break-in.
