The Cartomator VM
This tank is made from "Platinum Volcano" M3 (Macro-Molecular Metal). M3 is a combination of a metal alloy and a molecular resin base that makes a new form of super alloy. While it is generally not quite as strong as the pure alloy, it also only weighs a portion of the solid metal and still is very strong, since the alloy weaves though the material and interlocks itself. M3 first came to my attention from Dino, who has released numerous M3 Damascus Lavatanks and then we started using it about a year ago on some of our rifle and handgun grips with awesome success. The unfortunate part is that the stuff is very expensive when you need 1" rod to make 22mm tanks! It is about $13 an inch, which is almost double of the same size of Titanium. So naturally, with each tank requiring about 3.5 inches of material, a Cartomator VM will cost about $75-80. But it is as light as Carbon Fiber and has that wow factor for sure!

Since we have shelved the Pro-VM due to the lack of durability in the ultra thin wall area of the "skirt" cap that we require of every product we make. We have decided to replace it with a Titanium constructed Pro-VX and a Titanium Cartomator VX also. If you gotta have an M3 tank for your Provari, we aren't going to do the skirt cap, but the new Cartomator VM can also be outfitted for a Provari by choosing the tapered bottom cap at no extra cost. It has become my tank of choice lately.
We expect the Ti models to be completed sometime in the next two weeks. The M3 models are officially still in pre-order status, but some are trickling into customer hands as we speak.
