Classic Body stainless steel type?

So I picked up a classic mag to mod and maybe try some brazing. But I can't find any references as to what series of stainless steel was used in body. Does anyone here know?

I was thinking that soldering wouldn't be strong enough to hold the feed. But looking back, brass guns are all soldered and they hold up fine. Not sure what I was thinking other than just trying to make this project harder on myself.

You can weld on the bodies. I think the factory tubes are brazed rather than silver soldered. Like welded on his tubes. I think brazing is really appropriate and great.

High heat can warp the body, just a fair warning. Plus the spring stop is soldered on as well so high heat can loosen that solder joint out of spec.

You can weld on the bodies but you risk warping the metal. Original AGD bodies are silver soldered. If you don't believe just heat one ss body enough to melt the solder and the feedneck will detach.
