    Titanium Predator???

    A fellow near me bought a 10 year old Predator that he claims has a titanium frame. I have seen the gun and it looks like he is right. Anyone know if and when this was an option, and why it is no longer?

    Back then some NHC pistols had cast frames, sourced from Caspian. This included primarily the railed models, and any model advertised as having a plunger tube that was machined as part of the frame, plus frames with an integrated magazine funnel. I understand that NHC has since moved to other sources for railed frames.

    Caspian did offer a Titanium option, on and off, and might still be offering it today. So I guess NHC was able to offer Titanium frames as an upgrade.
    Too many people miss the silver lining because they're expecting gold.

    The titanium frame was an option back in the early days. There weren't very many made. We have since started using hard coat anodized aluminum frames for our lightweight models.
