Anyone have experience with a Caspian titanium 1911 frame? Pros & cons of using them to build a custom pistol would be appreciated.

Charlie wasn't it you that posted some pics of a beautiful Caspian on the Prodigy board a little while before the end? Was that your gun or one you were doing a T&E on?

That's it.

It began as a T&E but after fondling it for about 30 seconds I sent a check.... it is mine... mine I say... all mine! :D

It's a very nice piece... shoots very well, and gorgeous.
Let me know when you get bored with it. :lol:

Specifics on Titanium 1911 frames

This has been real snappy chat, guys; but I'm looking for specific pros & cons on Ti frames. What about durability/longevity compared to steel? How about gauling problems when mated to carbon steel slides, etc?

Think about those questions...

since Titanium frames are quite new how would anyone know about longevity?

Galling is a potential problem with any two sliding surfaces but if it happens it is because somebody got it too tight.
