Why not titanium?

But I would also be very interested in aluminum as well,...obviously with the non-titanium price tag. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Need some input from everybody

Wyo could probably answer this best...my only question would be what if any issues does aluminum have in extreme cold environments where you guys hunt at? Does it swell or contract? I know aluminum is a soft metal, lol and a PITA to weld...

Chris,

TPS rings.
http://tacticalprecision.com or from Brownells. Cost is around $65 - would Bagder make as nice a ring for the same $$$?

I'd suggest bagging the aluminum idea simply because it's not as tough as steel. You'd have to make them thicker for the same strength. I'd suggest simply rounding off the tactical units so they look cleaner and less utilitarian.

First it's got to work, second it's got to look good. Too many people buy on looks, but they'll kill you if they don't work better than the competition.

Re: Need some input from everybody

For me, rings or bases made of aluminum will never be enough. Strength is comprimised, it's soft and won't wear as well over time, not to mention it stretches with repeated force at certain levels... Nothing I want in a ring.

I wouldn't put my name on aluminum rings or bases FWIW.

Right now Badger Ordinance in synonymous with strength and quality. If you want a nice ring make it SS, smooth the lines and polish 'em up a bunch for a more classy look, but keep the integrity of steel and mounting design. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Just my 2 cents...
