The rimfires are made of "pot metal" (with steel cores in the barrels and cylinder chamber linings) so I would suspect that platings could indeed peel.

The centerfire guns are made of real gunmetal by Pietta, who are capable of making pretty good guns - at least to the same standard as a recent-production Uberti/Beretta wheelgun.
