zinc aluminum alloy, commonly called pot metal or white metal. Don't think it will take anodizing.

It might, but it'll look like crap, best bet is probably powder coat or cerakote.

I have some stock PGP frames that I had cut out of aluminum back when I worked in the steel fabrication industry. They're just the basic shape and require further milling for the trigger group and drilling/tapping for the grip screws. I'll dig around and see if I can find some pics or just get some new ones up in the next couple of days.
