    NO, I would most definitely NOT called a step backward...

    But also it depends in a lot of things, I of course do not know how exactly does RED process their Magnesium to make the Mag PL mount, how they used any particular Thermal Mechanical processing or otherwise to achieve what they have achieved for both the PL mount and the new Weapon Mag body parts.

    But when the microstructure of the materials is well defined and controlled increasing strength exponentially then it's impact dampening resistance, capacities to reduce vibrations etc. you'll see Magnesium parts done right as a huge step forward, and of course especially also in consideration of been so light weight...

    But Titanium is a bad ass material strong as hell... Also cheaper and easier to manufacturer i to parts then Mag. is.

    I know I am going with the Mag PL mount on my personal Weapon Mag. 8k... :)

    Aluminum mount was not so bad, the filter cracks from stress before the mount melts - like on this poor red one that captured great footage until it just was a little too close to the action.
