Would it hold up?

Would a bar-stock Caspian frame hold up from the recoil of Triton's .40super?Would a shock-buff be needed?Where is the most stress placed on a frame?In the slide stop area?Are their cast frames as strong as the bar-stock?

Our slides will defineately hold up to .40super. Fred Craig has been building .40supers for quite a while with great success.
The cast frames are just as strong and have the same rail specs and hole location as our barstock receivers. The barstock receiver is a better choice if you were going to high polish or engrave your pistol because it has a superior surface finish.
