Does anyone have any experience with Titanium frames for 1911 pistols? The idea has great appeal, light weight and high strength. I have no experience with titanium frames, so I wonder if there will be wear or galling problems? Is there any advantage over aluminum frames? Thanks.

Call Caspian direct, they will answer all your questions. George Sith at EGW built one for John Ricco(inventor of the 9x23) he can be reached at Cllassic Pistol in Southampton,PA. He hasn't had any galling problems yet. They say you should plate the titanium before you use it but John didn't.

The titanium frame should be much stronger than a comparable aluminum frame. If you wanted to make a lightweight pistol in a high-test caliber it should be the way to go. Of course, some of that Scandium alloy that S&W uses would be handy, too.
