Hello all,
I am requesting a bit of information.

Working through a decision process in my head about purchasing one of the two models listed. What I can't find out is what parts are stainless.

The pieces I am interested in know about specifically are:
Slide stop
Grip safety
Mainspring housing (Possibly aluminum?)
Slide (If I have read correctly, the slide is stainless)

The search feature has not been my friend and my google-fu is foo-ed.

Thanks very much.

On my Valkyrie CCO. Slide stop, grip safety, slide are all magnetic so at best 400 series stainless but small parts are possibly carbon steel. I think I read slide was SS somewhere also, but likely not other pieces. The MS housing is non magnetic so it is aluminum. Best I can give you without grinding and checking color of sparks.

Thanks for the swift reply.

I am deeply hurt you don't want to go grinding though... :eek:

Seriously, many thanks.
Have a great holiday with you and yours.
