You've gotten it bass-ackwards, Microgunner - your prejudicial slant is showing.
The actual/inner receiver proper is steel (mine attracts a magnet), but the receiver covers are made of the Zamak alloy (non-magnetic).
Standard model covers are blue/black powder coated, while the Golden Boys are brass-colored (Called "Brasslite" by HRA).
