Titanium Here We Come

We have been working for a while here on designing and producing some Titanium actions.  It is not one of my favorite materials to work with and it has its limitations in an action application.  But there are many that want the weight savings and are willing to put up with some of the disadvantages of having a Titanium action body.  The additional stretch of Ti versus Chrome Moly and Stainless Steel can make bolt opening more difficult.

 

Here are two slugs that are the throw away portion of the center of the action after we have EDM cut the bolt bore and raceways.  The slug on left is Ti and the slug on right is 416 SS.  The Ti slug weighs about 7 ounces and the 416 SS slug weighs 13.5 ounces.  It will be a few weeks before we have pictures of the first ti short action. We have not figured out pricing on the Ti models yet.
