    SW 3913: Calling all metallurgists!

    Here's a pic of my 3913. I know there are two different metals/alloys here. One on the frame and the other on the slide. Does anyone know which is which? I am thinking about possibly plating or Cerakoting or even just buffing what I have if it can be done. Thanks!

    Aluminum frame, steel slide. I'd be careful about buffing the aluminum frame, and if you use a bake-on coating, best keep temps well below 400F.
