I do not suggest Titanium to customers
unless lightweight is the PRIMARY concern
of the rifle project in question. It is
not a question of strength, rigidity or
any other structural matter but the cost
is significantly higher than it is for stainless.
We have done some ultra light tactical rifles
on Ti Coyotes w/carbon wrap barrels that
were used for long distance tactical stalking
but for the most part Ti is limited to
lightweight hunting rifles.
