I cant say for certain, but given the weight, i would guess theyre made of actual aluminum, rather then the pot metal that most companies call aluminum. They did specifically mention 6061 when it was in development to it could be that. the weight certainly seems about right for something about that size, thats mostly hollow.
On the other hand, i was able to touch up the missing paint on the barrel (from the awful, impossible to remove, melted on orange muzzle kyairsoft insisted on) using normal aluminum blackener. From my experience in machining, 6061-T6 aluminum does not take blackener, so the barrel and receiver at least are probably a different alloy.
