I have been searching for used as well, seems like no used Fusion Elites are out there, did no one buy them or just good enough not to sell?

I have both and I can say that I prefer the Fusion Elite. I prefer the trigger and the slimmer reg of the Elite. They are both pretty much equal in shot feel. The Elite feels like a refined old school poppet, while the Spec R has a standard dump valve feel. Stock for stock the Spec R is softer, smoother and quieter. Drop in the Turbine Bolt from Dangerous Power and the Spec R gets a bit louder and more like a poppet. At this point I would buy whichever you can find at a cheaper price.

I’m going to say that the Fusion Elite is more reliable, but I have never had any issues with either of them. I’ve had my Elite since 2014 and the G5 Spec R since 2017. Maybe there’s less rollback in the breach of the Elite, but then again that issue is 100% nullified in the Spec R with the a Turbine Bolt. The honest answer is that they are both equal in every way, except marker type (Poppet vs Spool) and the efficiency numbers that come along with each one.
