I like longslide 1911's, always have, always will and always will have had at least one. The best reason to have one is you WANT one!

But, forget longslide performance... at least back burner it as an unexpected bonus if you find a powder that you chrono and squeeze a dozen or more FPS out of it over a 5" barrel.

Longslides for sure add sight radius, and weight forward that helps keep recoil down as well as add a bit of stability, and they (IMO) look great.

Also in a higher performance cartridge that was designed for short barrel like the .357 Sig, the ball of fire out of the muzzle virtually disappears and the sheer blast volume is directed more down range... perhaps adding to the discomfort of shooters in adjacent lanes :)

OP, maybe you can get a 6" slide and 6+" threaded barrel... get a screw on comp and see how you like it? It'll be more easily found and maybe even cheaper.

If you already own a Dan Wesson, I doubt you will be very happy with the Fusion. That Bruin is a very good handgun.
Other than the fact you do not have one, what are you wanting out of a 7”?
Trust me, I am not looking down on you the least bit. Plenty of guns I have bought simply because I do not have one
Dunno about that. I have a DW Bruin and a Fusion Pro Line and my Fusion is the best made commercial 1911 that I own or have owned. Maybe not quite on the level of the DW but pretty darn close and Farrr better than anything Colt ever made.
