titanium vs stainless muzzlr brakes?

Wondering if anyone knew the weight difference between the two and if anyone knew a place to find TI brakes

    That depends on size but here's something that might give you a general idea;

    Weight in pounds per cubic foot comparison ...

    SS (18-8) = 492.21

    Titanium = 283.39

    So, if you take the ratio, the TI is that much lighter.

    (SOURCE: http://www.coyotesteel.com/assets/im...rcubicfoot.pdf)

    ... and if you want an actual weight of a TI muzzle brake, contact http://elkmeadowperformance.com/index.html

    What I have found is stainless is more weight, however the titanium brakes are so hard they continue to twist onto the stainless barrel. The are very hard to time. I have 2 titanium brakes and they never stay timed on my barrel correctly. They continually twist tighter on the barrel. I'm not sure if one is expanding and the other can't or what causes it but since I am crazy and have to have everything perfect, I've replaced the titanium brakes with Assassin Brakes from J E Custom.
