This is extremely impractical, but very cool! I am sure some very well off gentleman will buy it!

Just up the road from me. Been to Nemo once just to drop
in and see what they had.
Beings that was made in Montana, it falls under the new laws passed
not long ago where the fed has no regulation over any firearm built in
and owned in the state.
Now if you take it accrost the state border, then you are at the mercy of
all fed regulations. But bought in MT and built in MT anything goes as long
as it follows state laws, not fed laws per the law they passed.

Glad to see a Montana company getting out there and growing.
We need more gun mfg's here in the state.

We do have several Amo mfg's here, one just down the road from me about
10 miles or so. You go into their main office and sitting on the counter in front
of the desk of the secretary is a 50cal. Nothing says ya mean business like that.
*lol*

I thought that Titanium catches fire at a certain heat level? (Thinking helicopters here). That would be quite annoying to buy something like that and have it literally melt down in front of me.


But what can I say? The guy had the cahoonas to build one so he must have some mad skills with the CAD.

Oh my god no kidding right? Do you think that is why some parts like the barrel, firing pin, and bolt assembly are steel?

That is awesome that you actually got to go in there! There is this gun store near my house, and when you go in there is a mini gun. Most likely because Dillon Precision is just down the road. There was even at one point one of those Mk. 19 grenade launchers.

Would titanium actually be practical as a gun metal? Doesn't it catch fire at a relatively low temp?

Could be wrong here.

Maybe if it was Platinum plated and they threw in 7500 rounds with 168 grains of .999 fine silver bullets.

Titaniums melting point is 3,034 degrees so I think it will be ok. Most of the heat is in the barrel, and the bolt assembly, which is why i think they made those out of steel.

Sweet, those would be cool to see.

Ya i was applying for a job there,(The ammo mfg) but other things
turned up before they made a decision and i went a diffrent
direction.
Still would be a cool job to have.

OMG I want one!

Hey guys, can I borrow $100,000 so I can buy one?

Anyone?

Anyone?

Bueler?


In all seriousness, I applaud the metaphorical statement that a AR made of Titanium symbolizes....

I wish, i'm down in the bitterroot valley now.
Thanks to a suprise in my health, work is not a
option for me, i will be lucky to see the end of next year.
according to my doc, the end of this year but im adding a bit
to it.
I have to admit I do miss working, being disabled as they labled
me is not what its cracked up to be. I hate the though of not
'earning' my money, not able to improve the finacial situation at home.

Now i am looking at having to come up with close to $100K before its all
over just to be able to survive. I will have to raise at least $40K or the
hospitals wont even look at me as a canidate.

The lessons i have learned though all of this so far, is if anyone thinks their
life is priceless, just become ill, you will find out real fast what your price tag
is to survive.
For me, its about $1.5 million, that will be the total cost. Since i'm just a average
working stiff, or was anyway, the odds are when my time runs out thats it.
But who knows. We shall see what the future holds, one day at a time.

It depends on the alloy used, if it would be a good barrel metal or not. If it was one of the harder alloys, it might, but would also be very difficult to machine into shape. And if you were not going to use one of the harder alloys, you mind as well just use softer steel.

Titanium powder can be an explosion hazard if heated; solid titanium does not have this risk. Chlorine gas can also react with titanium and cause a fire. Liquid oxygen can also start a titanium fire if it comes into contact with it.

Outside of those instances, titanium is pretty safe.

For one hundred thousand units of any reasonably useful currency, damned thing had better be able to make tea and sharpen axes too. You could buy a second hand APC for that money!
