    I’m considering trying one of these out and I was wondering if anyone had any first hand experience with them?

    How is the fit, finish, and feel compared to a defiance or bighorn? These are the three on my short list right now.

    Thanks

    Really good stuff, I’ve had or have a handful of each in your list and you really can’t go wrong with any of them. You won’t find a better ti action than the lone peaks, fit, finish and feel is great. Defiance ss actions are damn smooth and as bullet proof as it gets as well. If weight is a factor I’d go for the lone peak, if not you may as well choose by looks or price. They’re all top notch.

    Curious if anyone has had any sticky bolt issues with the titanium actions. I had read that titanium has a higher elasticity then steel and will cause bolt sticking at upper pressure loadings.

    Curious is anyone has experienced this.

    In the titanium platform you will not find a better action than the lone peak. You will not no you are running a titanium with a lone peak. Like Ryan said if weight is a consideration get a lone peak.

    Are these two lug or three lug? How light can the trigger be adjusted?

    Two lug. I use the titanium for hunting rifles so 1 1/2 Lb is where I set my triggers. Never went lighter than that.
