Explosive Bond Composite Fusion
My dad and I ran across a custom 1911 builder who claims to have developed a new way to build gun frames. They are using explosive bonding to combine stainless steel with aluminum. So, they are combining a durable smooth slide with a light body. He says they have patents and are going public with this at SHOT show this week. My dad was convinced and put down a hefty down payment to get in on the first run of these. I've done web searches to find out if this is flim-flamery, but I guess since this is new, there is not a lot of information available. I'm curious if anyone here has knowledge that might aleve my skepticism?
