Steel vs Aluminum
Thanks for 'splainin' it.
I was curious and not sure the gun was all original parts.
I had a feeling there was something I didn't know...
I get it now!!!
The anodized finish keeps the two metals from creating a mess out of the steel. The steel would rust like crazy if wet...
Ever try bolting steel screws on an aluminum boat? That's a no-no...use stainless.
