Is there any truth about who supplies the frames?

From that thread. Good to know some things never change...

"If Bob gets every thing right the first time. My Fusion kit didn't get the frame and slide fitted like they were supposed to. The beavertail took A LOT of work to get fitted right. The bobtail work was nice, but Bob sent me the wrong grips than what I ordered."

And according to Remsport they supply frames and slides. Many more slides than frames, but they supply Fusion with slides and frames. Plus they supply the barrels. I heard this personally when I called Remsport.

This is why asked. I thought you had mentioned this before.

This is what I was told by the source. Hopefully it is true.

As to Fusion using STI frames, well, it looks obvious that they are. But I could be wrong.

Fusion cast frames are supplied by STI
Fusion high cap frames are supplied by STI

Fusion forged frames are Remsport (Same as Nighthawk, Volkmann)
Fusion forged slides are Remsport (same as Nighthawk, Volkmann)

Fusion barrels are Remsport.

FYI, Remsport slides and frames are made in Korea. They come to the USA with everything but the frame rails cut. Remsport finishes the frames and then serializes them and marks them with the manufacturers information.

Gunparts corp. sells Remsport forged slides and frames them for $149 each on Gunbroker every day.

PS-A little bird told me.

When did Volkmann stop using Caspian frames?

Every gun on his website is a Remsport frame. Notice they say "forged".

Caspian frames are cast.
