I currently have a S&W 340 M&P that is my EDC and have recently come across a used but like new 360PD which is the same gun basically except for the fact it has an exposed hammer vs. my guns enclosed hammer and a titanium cylinder. My questions are what are negatives of the titanium cylinders? Are they fragile and likely to blow up if magnum ammo is used,do they suffer from flame cutting/erosion if really light magnums are used? I've also read that the Ti cylinders are very difficult to maintain and clean.
I don't know anything about titanium cylinders on revolvers so I don't know if anything listed above is true or not. Also why do the Ti cylinder guns restrict the ammo weights of .357 magnum ammunition to be used in these guns? For those here who own the guns with Ti cylinders what are the trade offs good and bad?,thanks for any help guys.
