Celebrating the Electoral College election I grabbed a "titainium" model for $409. I haven't got to shoot it yet but after reading some of these reports I am wondering if it was a mistake... I will report after I get to the range.

Finally! Made it to the range and nothing but good. Fired three full mags without issue. First mag was a quick dump just to try and get it to fail. I think many of the problems may have to do with properly loading the magazines... YMMV. Now if there were a simple fix for the magazine catch that would be special.

Guys...that "Titanium" finish is most likely either a Cerakoat or a Dura-coat after-market finish.

Cerakote makes a one can epoxy spray in titanium and satin stainless finish. It's a quick and fairly durable way to spice up the gun, but they recommend putting a "Clear" CeraKote finish over the metal spray when done. Helps prevent nicks and scratches.

Dura-Kote is best done by a professional applicator because it has to be baked at 350 degrees after it is painted. This results in a more expensive, but more durable finish on the gun.

Both brands come in an alarming number of colors, some of which you wouldn't expect...especially the metal...titanium, satin/high gloss stainless, gunmetal grey, and the list goes on and one.

The only thing standing between you and a Titanium CMR is a can of spray, or an expensive baking process.

Either way, the reports have been favorable from users of both brands. The Cerakote can has a sealed container inside the spray can that is punctured by banging the can bottom down on a protruding plastic part that causes the catalyst fluid to be released into the resin. You have to shake it thoroughly and it says you have two days to spray before it sets up in the can.

Good luck and have fun!
