NEMO Arms made a .308 AR-10-style rifle out of titanium. The upper, lower, handguard, buffer tube, gas block and compensator are all titanium. They are selling the [TI]ONE for $95,904.

    apparently it costs over 90,000 dollars to machine a rifle out of what is basically no more than 300 dollars of titanium just something heavier than what you began with.

    Not very impressive. There are many materials that are much harder to machine than titanium. If it was wire edm inconel, then I would be impressed. Cad cam software, cnc machines, and coated tooling make machining titanium old hat. I would be more impressed if it was 316 stainless.

    There are also more corrosion resistant alloys that cost more money. Anything nickel based.

    Just my $.02
