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).
