1911 slides

Hey guys
Looking for a manufacturer of what I would call 90% slides in the green. Specifically completed slides with no sight dovetails, and no side serations.
I have a small one man operation that I will continue into retirement, and need slides that I can mill in the proper searations and sight dovetails as my customers desire. I have talked to Remsport, and he seems to have what I need, but having problems getting him to send me anything. I'm not big enough to talk to the guys who want 1,000 min orders. Any smaller CNC guys outthere who do or would do this. I use Foster/Caspian/ now.
Any info would be helpful

I just built a top half from Fusion components so I could have a SS combat setup for my 1972 Gold Cup.

My smith was skeptical at first, as he had never worked with Fusion components before. He had the job completed within a few days, and he told me he was very pleased with the quality of the Fusion components.

Looks BEAUTIFUL, shoots great, too!

In my last book from them, they also had slides.

Thanks for the replys
I have used fusion on a commander build, and found the quality to be equal to Caspian. I'm a little guy, and always looking for the other little guy that can put out the same quality I do. Might have to just stick with the tried and true.
