First of all, I am a fool. I’m sick with myself for considering building ANOTHER rifle. But an ultra light rifle is teasing my brain. What do you guys recommend for a Ti action? I don’t want to spend $1500, are there some good alternatives? I’m thing the proof stock, Ti short action, maybe 20” or 22” proof barrel and a SAUM.

I’m going to follow, but don’t have a good answer for you.

You will probably only save around 10 ounces going Titanium. Why not just invest in a carbon fiber stock like a manners a carbon fiber barrel, and a light weight scope. You will get more weight savings from these than the receiver.

I think the goal is to do those things in combo with the Ti action. He is buying my 19 oz PR stock off me.

I dug my heals into this subject and was all in with the titanium build. I like the Lone Peak action or the Borden action if money isn't an issue. With that said, one of the more affordable titanium action is the EVO by MACK Brothers. It is a true lightweight action and the company uses wire EDM technology. For $1250 it will be a hard action to beat in its price point.
