The aluminum of the body is 6061 T6511 aluminum alloy. The standard pump arms are Stainless Steel, and the CF arms are optional upgrades. Brian at Metadyne said he experiemented with brass rods, but had trouble getting enough strength out of them I believe. So they were tabled til later.

Just a key fact for you all, but if you're thinking about doing a coating, like duracoat or something more exotic, it probably won't work. I've been communicating with Brian on and off for the last 2 weeks and the issue is that the o-ring slots, abundance of screw holes, and internals have pretty sensitive tolerances. Therefore, any thick resilient coating is going to throw those off and possibly render the marker useless. The only way to get around that is to mask these areas during a coating process, which is labor intensive and will probably cost an arm and a leg (I know because I've looking into a few). SOOOO...my preliminary answer to your coating issue is to keep it very thin...ie anodizing. But, if you're interested in doing something more complicated, make sure you communicate the exact thickness to Brian and get his opinion.

Made a couple hockey stick stocks today, here's the one going on the Thumper when it gets here (blue, so that'll be this week, hopefully). I made another one for the sniper shown in the 2nd pic that'll use a 13/3k mounted underneath.





Got enough material for a third that says "WARRIOR" across the whole side. They'll have new tennis balls by the way, that was just one that I stole from my dog

What about using a Cerakote finish? Will this be thin enough? I am taking this off of Voodoo_Coatings post tin the BST:

Cerakote is very thin and will not interfere with the tolerances of the marker.
