SVI makes all-titanium guns, maybe they would sell you a slide.

I think you are jumping in at the deep end, titanium is not easy to work and the difference in slide mass will affect gun operation.

Very Bad Idea, Not onlyh will it affect operation, but is will wear out very fast. You can have Tit frame or slide, but never ever both! :roll:

How about an aluminum frame and a titanium slide? That might be fun.
