    The pic doesn't do it justice. The real gun almost has a pink hue to it! Simulates rust red and yellow tones.

    I'm well experienced with pot metal, the point I was trying to make is that just because a magnet doesn't stick, doesn't make it pot metal.
    I am sure these will stand up as well or better than their 1911's which have alloy makeup on them too. I certainly don't blame you for hanging onto yours. As soon as I get the go ahead from the fun police I'll be getting one (apparently this home reno things somehow has priority)

    Here you go:

    ZAMAK alloys were first developed during the 1920's by The New Jersey Zinc Company. The name ZAMAK draws upon the basic metallurgy of the alloy group: Z-Zinc, A-Aluminum, MA-Magnesium, and K-Kopper (e.g., German). In the United States, ZAMAK 3 is the most common alloy for hot chamber die casting. With a combination of superior mechanical properties and low melting/manufacturing costs, it fulfills the needs for most die casting applications. Other ZAMAK alloys include ZAMAK 2, ZAMAK 5, and ZAMAK 7. Common to each alloy is a consistent Aluminum content range, however, the alloys differ in specification by varying amounts of copper, magnesium, and nickel - resulting in different mechanical and physical properties.
    You are either trained or untrained, and you
    will always fall to the level of your training.

    Like I said in the new thread

    The name zamak is an acronym of the German names for the metals of which the alloys are composed: Zink (zinc), Aluminium, Magnesium and Kupfer (copper).[2] The New Jersey Zinc Company developed zamak alloys in 1929. While zinc alloys are popularly referred to as pot metal or white metal, zamak is held to higher industrial standards

    large police presence at the Halifax Shopping Mall on Saturday.
    Police said in an email there was "no active shooter situation" but seven youths who had a slingshot were taken into custody.
