main spring hosing

Any body have any experience with a company called fusion. I saw a chain link msh that would match my ultra stainless raptor. It caught my eye.Ed brown makes one also ,but a little more money?

I replaced the MSH on one of my Ultra CDP's with a fusion magwell MSH. No problems at all it was a simple part exchange.

Good to know. I will probably change mine after the first few range trips.

I bought one of their Freedom Series Gov Model kits and was very impressed with the fit and finish. Slide to frame fit was better than the Colt Gov Stainless I bought last year.

Assembled it and took to the range and it performed flawlessly. Ordered a smooth back MSH for it later but have not installed it. Their communication and customer service was fantastic. Id purchase from them again without hesitation.

Fusion has been my go to for replacing MSH's. Best matching contours to the Kimber frames that I have found. Tried Wilson, Ed Brown, and EGW to name a few. They were all very well made but didn't quite match the frame as well as the Fusions do...at least on my Kimbers anyway.

I have a Fusion MSH on my SS Raptor and my Eclipse Pro II. They make a good product. You may find one a little cheaper on eBay than their website.

If your Raptor is SS get the polished version because I bought the plain stainless and later found out they had a polished version. It just matches the Raptor better. I polished mine and it looks better now but it would be easier to order the correct one from the start.

I watched a u tube video on how to change the msh. I have everything and being a mechanic ive done harder things, but is it necessary to remove the grips? I know you have to keep the grip safety engaged with rubber bands. I have thin brass punches, strong finger pressure and brass/plastic hammer.Im also aware of the spring thats under pressure in the msh. Thanks.
