Scandium-Aluminum, and in fact ALL Aluminum alloys suffer from a fundamental difference from Steel. There is NO level of repeated stress that will not eventually result in fatigue failure in Aluminum. Steel if stressed at a fraction (generally about 10%) of it's yield stress repeatedly will never fail due to fatigue. The same is not true of aluminum. This behavior is unique to Aluminum Alloys. This is the reason why I am always leery of an aluminum framed gun.

Not S&W, cheap pistol and so on, but for someone who knows Murphy law isn't there to be laughed about but to learn from it, this will be good read.

The reason why double safeties suck-how your double safeties can make your gun literally locked.
