^^ chrome plated brass, and zinc alloy for days

Still works like a champ, i'm just gonna sticker bomb it eventually... when it was new, it was the prettiest, sleekest little mod ever :D

nothing wrong with the way it looks now, the "trendy hipsters"(arseholes) would call it distressed and pay $2oo for it

I've checked out a few of the "SS" version in some local shops (they have 3 locations near me, same owner) and as far as I could tell they were actually SS for the body... Might be an OEM thing though.

So i guess they weren't lying when they said stainless steel "color"

from the images I am now trying to figure out what is stainless steel. Looks like nothing.

Mines magnetic and I did pass the magnet over the whole surface. :P

Dunno what anyone else got, but mine is stainless steel and authentic.

Magnets stick to mine also... it's authentic...and some kind of zinc alloy...but deffo not SS ... it looked like a beautiful brushed SS when new ...but now it looks like the pictures above...again, a great mod, but i now know the aluminium colored version probably lasts longer regarding the coating, same as my i stick 40, which still holds up

They dont mention SS anywhere... also, the weight, do you think an SS body, no matter how thin would weigh so little...not to mention the casting process

Yep, thats the one, as pictured above by me, nearly one year later...bought right from here - You ordered this product on 7/10/2016.



None of my SS mechs have ever corroded, especially not like that, from simple hand pressure and contact
