We have had titanium, scadmium, and aluminum for a long time now, but I wonder why magnesium is not used more, especially on low stress parts due to its great corrosion resistance and heat dissipation qualities. I mean if they can use it for rims and engine casings on race cars in place of aluminum why not on a pistol, shotgun, or rifle.
