    For lack of a better term, what are the "magnetic properties" of titanium? If you had a titanium firing pin, could that reduce or negate that possibility of the pin getting "stuck" in the channel?

    Seriously, if you ever have a MRI, be sure to tell them about any metal implants in your body.

    And here is an old radiology joke regarding CT (computed tomography) and MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) scans:

    What does CT stand for? Continue testing

    What does MRI stand for? More Radiologist Income

    My secret fantasy wife for retirement is to find a 40 year old red-headed radiologist, preferably female. As is common for diagnostic radiologists, she would work pretty regular business hours, especially for a physician, and will make in the low six figures per year.

    Odd how Mrs. MillCreek is not very supportive of my dreams.

    That's an amazing article, and I'd have never thought about the gun being magnitized that way!!

    My orthopedic surgeon used S30V rods for my L4-L5 fusion (being a knife nut, I had to ask what steel he was using LOL), he said no MRIs until they came out. Had the rods removed after 18 months so no problem now - other than they have to use contrast to see through the graft. OTOH, my wife's surgeon used a Ti plate for her C6-C7 fusion and she's had no problems with MRIs.

    I have titanium in/ on my spine. Doc said airport scanners shouldn't see it, but I didn't ask about more powerful fields like MRIs.

    Titanium (and its alloys) has no magnetic moment, so it doesn't show up on metal detectors, and won't be affected by MRI's.

    All elements in the ferrous group (iron, nickel, etc.) have a strong magnetic moment. Aluminum has a weak magnetic moment that is opposite to iron based alloys, so it can show up on sensitive magnetic detectors, and will be affected by an MRI.
