    Lightweight magnesium 1911

    Sounds like it would be a bit, um, snappy.

    Not sure they're even still around as their website is gonzo............................

        That was my first thought.
        It's an alloy.
        I bet they had some, um, interesting trial runs with mixing the right amount of magnesium.
        Kapow!

          Magnesium dust is flammable but solid castings are stable. To add to the crazy of it all, I've welded the stuff...lighting up on it for the first time was quite a rush.
          Eta: it's used a lot the the automotive industry. Common aluminum replacements parts, intakes, valve covers ect.

            Not a fan of any gun that has Bill-Board type rollmarks. Agreed one of the pluses of the 1911 is its weight.
