My Fusion started out like this. From the beginning I intended it to be a target gun for Service Pistol matches. The Slide, Frame, and barrel were fitted for me by someone much more experienced in 1911s. I did the rest.
This is what it looks like finished. I had it sandblasted after I got everything fitted together. I then Parkerized it, and then applied Norrels Moly Resin to it. The grips were made by a retired Coastie. For Srvice pistol competition, it externally has to look like a issued gun, with the exception of sights and trigger. No beavertails, no extended controls, etc.
This was how it shot the first time I took it to the range at 50 feet.
I was pretty tickled. Threw a stray shot there in the chest, but the gun is capable.
