It's a semi-custom gun, so naturally it will be more money than an off the shelf production gun. $1K more, must have loaded it up pretty good, because I know what my CCO build is going to cost and it was only $300 more than a DW CCO and has everything I wanted that a DW does not offer.1 reason. MONEY. I love everything about my DW CBOB and it was about $1000 cheaper than my quote for a 9mm Fusion build. I have a 9mm Pro Carry with close to $1000 worth of extras done to it already . I just want a true Commander size 9mm Bob. If DW comes out with one,
I'll save a bunch if not, I'll get the Fusion. Either way I win !!:rock:
You will find the 9mm is generally more expensive then it counterpart in .45 ACP. That is the same with most manufacturers.I'm not bashing Fusion either. They are a bargain in a semi custom gun. My CBOB was a tad over $900 . My Fusion quote was not very loaded up at all. No top serrations of anything fancy. Basically the same as a DW CBOB, but with Ion Bond per Bob Serva's suggestion and in 9mm which is an up charge from .45 acp. Like I said I am buying one or the other in 2010 and I will be equally happey with wichever one it is though my bank account would prefer the DW.
I do plan on putting it in a holster, most likely during the summer when it would potentially be harder to conceal the grip on a government frame.Proudpapa,
Congrats on your new Fusion. +1 and over the top on the sex appeal charts......amazing grips to say the least.....will you be holstering this Fusion? If so, please let us know what your experience is with the Yukon T-11.....everytime I see this finish I'm wondering why I always buy stainless Fusions.
Enjoy and be safe!
I think it might be due to a couple of factors. One being that from what I've seen ramped barrels are generally more costly than traditional barrels and the companies that build guns have to recoup the costs somehow. Two, there is additional machine work involved in adapting the frame to accept the ramped barrel, which again the gun companies have to recoup the costs to themselves somehow.You will find the 9mm is generally more expensive then it counterpart in .45 ACP. That is the same with most manufacturers.
