They come from 20mm guns

It's not that I don't believe in you, I just think you need a lot of experience. A lot more than most people in this thread have.

Between titanium and aluminum for your purpose I'd go with the aluminum. It will be way cheaper for the material, finding someone to weld it for you and I believe lighter too. I've never welded titanium but I weld aluminum all the time. Its not that hard if you find someone that has experience. I've been told Titanium is very similar to TIG as steel but its supposed to be done in a vacuum. My teacher said he TIGed titanium before and just cranked up the CFM on the reg. Being that the part you want is not critical or structural, it doesn't matter with either material if the welds are perfect since its just for looks. As for shaping the body, you'd be better of shearing strips and welding them in an octagon or other shape then trying to roll diamond plate into a tube. Check out Industrial Metal Supply for a source of thin diamond plate. For the record though, a properly welded aluminum TIG bead is dam sexy and very strong too.

If you are short on cash, check out your local metal supply. They usually have remnants that are sold for way cheeper than a full sheet. To save cost on the cutting, don't have them shear it. You can use a jig saw or even a table saw. Be very careful using the table saw, spray the blade with WD-40and go slow. If it catches it will mess you up.

Why don't you try to find an old artillery shell? That would be sick.

you will have an extra 5 pounds on the gun but atleast you will be able to almost throw your gun across the field and pick it up and keep playing

It's not going to work the way you want it to, bending it in small incriments at wide angles will eventually get deformed, and you'll have no luck bending it straight over a pipe. Titanium is expensive, but it's also easy to get an aurora look to. I've never seen titanium diamond plate. It seems pointless. The point of diamond plate is cheap aluminum that's really strong and doesn't bend easily. Doing the same thing to titanium is impractical.
