Does anyone know what type of metal the classic custom is made of? Is it possibly stainless steel under the finish, or carbon steel, etc?

I gotta check with my gunsmith on this. I seem to remember that he tried to re-blue a Kimber slide recently, and was shocked to learn that it is stainless! Seems that Kimber ran short of carbon steel slides a while ago, and filled in with stainless appropriately finished to match the rest of the pistol.
