Interesting comment by Les Baer in an interview he did with Patrick Sweeney for an article entitled Compact Powerhouse, A Modern Look for the November 2017 issue of G&A. He was asked why one of his current offerings (1911 pistol) is available only with a steel frame.

He responded with a statement about aluminum (alloy) framed 1911 pistols. "I'm not happy with the durability of an alloy-framed pistol. They don't hold up when you go past a couple hundred thousand rounds."

The other side of the coin is that he must be happy with the steel-framed pistols and how they hold up "past a couple hundred thousand rounds".
