I decided to take the plunge and get my first class III device. The paperwork is en route and I am trying to choose between a stainless Phantom, or the new titanium Phantom. The only reason I was looking at the titanium was because it is only 60% of the weight of the stainless, and a lifetime purchase. I plan to use this thing on a .17hmr ruger m77, and the new purchase, a Noveske Rogue 16" w/switchblock. I know for a rifle 8oz isn't much, but if you have hung a stainless phantom on a pistol, you know how much weight is there. Does anyone here think the Ti is worth $50/ounce more than the stainless version? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
