Don't know if their is a downside other than the price for me My Defiance Anti...weighed on my scale 22oz, and with Talley rings i'm still under the advertised weight of that action. For me I dont see the gain, but I'm a pretty basic guy and don't spend money so I can say I have certain things when others are just as good. Some have said the Anti is too light for big mags and flex, but my Savage UL in 28N is shaved and cut up worse and it shoots .5" groups with its cheap cheesy stock and crappy factory trigger.Is there any down side to a titanium action looking at a lone peak fusion ?
Or the titanium as strong as a super heavy rail gun action. Each person just has to be happy with their choice and what they are able and willing to pay. With the internet the way it is I would think if an action was defective and people were having issues.....it would be all over the place being bashed.I can’t see how a cut down, trimmed up action is as strong as a full titanium action. I run Pierce Engineering titanium 17oz SA mag and they are great. I have another on order for a 7mm WSM I’m putting together with a #4 Bartlein Carbon barrel.
