Review: just got my fusion a few days ago, and i gotta say its better than expected. i only have a few bad things to say about it, but a lot more good things.

the good:
it's lightweight and easy to handle. the stock trigger is very nice and easy to walk. the milling and anno jobs are very clean and sharp (in more ways than one, look at bad section), the operating system is very easy to understand and maintain, just pop out the bolt and 1/4 twist on the ram cap and your good to clean and maintain all that needs regular maintenance. having used FASORs before i already understand the system, and there is nothing wrong with it, just my bad prior experience was with bad electronics. overall i think this marker is the best you can buy for the money, especially since it has all the different firing modes, very nice. performance wise over the chrono is was awesome, the most consistant i've seen, fired off four shots just to test it: 258, 256, 253, 264; the last was the only one off, but still not bad at all. a little low, but not bad for out of the box.

there are a few bad parts, however:
like i said the milling is sharp, there are a few places that it is sharp enough to cut skin! it's not a place you would regularly touch, its on the body near the LPR, the two diagonal grooves just below the barrel, nothing two bad, just a little annoying; my only other problem is the feedneck, it doesnt grip very well to a halo, and it's weird because as you twist the lever it tightening real nice but then right before it locks it loosens up a little, and makes for a not so tight fit with my halo, anyone else's do that?
Conclusion: Like i said earlier i believe this marker is the best buy for the bucks, got mine on ebay for $250, great deal. hopefully will get to play with it here in a week or two, so i'll update when i get the chance. giving it a 9 just because of the two problems i talked about.

9 out of 10

You aren't supposed to twist the lever, just twist the little knob on the side, and then clamp down.
