Metal is one of the better, Plexi's a no no itll crack, aluminum will bend overtime with the pressure and thermal cycling, steel is good. The best though is Acetal/Delrin. Thats what I use and many others as well. PCV is also a good material if youve got milling stuffs.

Delrin FTW

It scratches really easy though . Milled delrin does. Molded isnt too bad.

Scratches? Whats so bad about that? If you want to stare at a mount and say how beautiful it is, PM SSilencer on XS and drop $200 on a clear milled mount.
