Well yeah, most GBB that come full metal use pot metal, which is why I avoid KJW. Most after market parts are good though. On a side note I have never seen any after market parts that are steel before, I bet the weight on guarders G26 slide you mentioned is awesome. Although I am surprised it can cycle it okay, I'm pretty sure that is why aluminum is used instead of steal.
Also, what brand of GBB is the Guarder slide for? I am interested in seeing it. May have to get one if it looks nice.
