S&W Scandium Frames, How Durable Are They? The High Road

Jun 18, 2019 When you mention Scandium frames, many people think of the 340 PD or the 329 PD and the potentially punishing recoil from the disparity of the overall weight to the chambering, but Scandium is also used in guns like the M&P R8, the TRR8, and the discontinued Nightguard series. These are only.357 Magnums and as heavy as 36 ounces.

Scandium Frame Durability warriortalk

Mar 19, 2011 I like J-frames, especially the Airweights, and I bought a second 642-1 to complement my original 642-1. Why not another M&P 340? I intend to shoot my scandium aluminum framed M&P as my "default" range .38 because of the stronger frame and will occasionally continue to run Magnum loads through it and I'll try to wear it out.

Care and Maintenance of Lightweight Revolvers

May 26, 2010 Friction between the steel pin and the aluminum frame can result in wear, and recoil can deform the walls of the hole, making the situation worse. In extreme cases, this necessitates replacement of the frame. Next, check for rotational play. At rest, it’s normal to find a very small amount of play as you try to rotate the cylinder by hand.

Titanium cylinder erosion in revolvers all4shooters

Enter now, the S&W 340 PD revolver, the maximum expression of the Centennial family, chambered in .357 Magnum and weighing only 320 grams, thanks to its Scandium light alloy frame and the titanium cylinder: needless to say, its lightness tempted us and we bought a sample years ago.

How durable are today's alloy frames? 1911 Firearm Addicts

Aug 05, 2014 I think alloy frames are great for everyday carry and are plenty durable for thousands of rounds. It will take alot of shooting to wear one out and the average person just wont wear one out. If you are shooting thousands of rounds a month in competition or something, you might consider using steel. Thats my 2 cents.

Smith & Wesson also landed the rights to a healthy Scandium mine in siberia as mentioned above. the kicker is the titanium that S&W chose to use in there cylinder's actually "STRETCHES" under pressure. The finish on the Scandium frame was worn completely through on all the corners

bike blog or die: What Ever Happened to Scandium Bike Frames?

By adding scandium to the tube or to the filler between welded tubes, melted 7005 aluminum becomes usable in welded components, like frames. So, at a chemical level, aluminum alloys infused with scandium (less than 0.5% by volume) are stronger and more weldable than scandium-free alloys.

Care and Maintenance of Lightweight Revolvers

May 26, 2010 Shooting standard pressure loads will keep frame stretch to a minimum. I’ve seen old Airweights that have always shot standard pressure loads and the frames were still within acceptable tolerances. If you shoot all +P ammo, you can bet on eventually stretching the frame. As to the hole wear, if the gun is kept clean the hole won’t wear as

Review: Kinesis Racelight Gran Fondo SC frameset road.cc

By adding scandium to their high strength aluminium alloy Easton increases its weldability allowing it to be used for bike manufacture rather than using the lower yield strength 6000 and 700 series. This in turn allows smaller diameter tubes to be created which removes the harsh ride often associated with oversized aluminium frames.

Gun Review: S&W 329PD Lightweight .44 Long-Term Review

May 01, 2015 I was excited to hear about the 329PD, which due to having a scandium alloy frame and titanium alloy cylinder weighs over a pound less, at 1.56lbs! I put about 2500 rounds through my 629 by the time I got my 329PD 3 years ago, but I had to relearn shooting a short, light .44 due to the drastic weight difference and increase in felt recoil.

How strong is scandium? Road Bike, Cycling Forums

Jul 26, 2006 Scandium frames are often ultra-light high end frames, so the resulting frame may be less strong than typical aluminum frames. Lightweight aluminum frames are now available for around $300, so the premium for scandium to save a few ounces is pretty steep.

What is your experience with Scandium 1911 frames? Topic

Feb 02, 2018 I have the S&W 1911 Scandium Frame Commander. No problems with the pistol, carries nicely. If you do get one, remember to keep the rails greased well. I personally saw scandium framed 1911's that were not properly greased and showed excess, premature wear. Remember, the frame is still alloy, and the slide steel and grease is your friend IMHO.

Scandium- sweet ride or poor reliabilty? Mountain Bike

May 24, 2010 A guy in my area just broke another Kona scandium FS frame: at the bottom of the seat tube. He's a bit heavy and tends to ride harder than many, though. Scandium is mostly used so that alu frames could be made lighter. The theory being that scandium alloys tolerate some flexing, unlike most other aluminum mixes.

Last year Smith & Wesson introduced its SW1911PD pistols that feature scandium frames. Scandium, discovered in the late 1800s, is as costly as gold to mine and almost as rare.
