Stainless steel will handle the high-pressure .22 rounds like 5.7mm a little better than titanium will, also stainless holds up a little better than titanium to some of the harsher cleaning methods. That’s why the Mask uses stainless baffles and a titanium tube; the tube doesn’t need to be a strong as the baffles and the baffles are the parts that need 99% of the cleaning.

That said, I agree 100% that a lighter silencer feels better on some lightweight hosts.
