    I'm not "uneducated," but the frame and grip frame most certainly are die cast zinc. Zinc hold
    up pretty well in .22 pistols like this, and it allows the guns to be made inexpensively.Bill,I

    The process is called forging. It is not sintered steel. Ruger and many other firearms use the

    confused rea...

    Cap. To a point, all steel is cast, as that's where the milled steel starts off from. Bar,
