You may want to reconsider the titanium frame. Titanium is probably not the best choice of material for a firearm. First it is difficult to machine, which will make it expensive. Second, it does not flex so all of the recoil force developed by the slide hitting the stops will be transmitted into your hand. And last, titanium is prone to catastrophic failure. It will last a long time, and I won't hazard a guess concerning how long, but when it fails it will dramatic.

So, before you buy the titanium frame I suggest that you find someone that has a Tauras Titanium revolver and give it a try. Most people I have known that have fired one of these revolvers did not shoot them more than 3 rounds. Second, price aluminum frames against the titanium, aluminum is probably a lot less expensive.

I hope this helps.
