Question Monkey metal and pot metal?

I've heard the term "monkey metal" and "pot metal" being used more than once, and I was wondering "what the hell is that. Monkey metal? that's ridiculous". So can anyone shed some light on this? thanks.

Metal bodies for AEG's, metal GBB's, mechboxes, outerbarrels, etc. There are some steel parts out there, but for cast parts they're usually a zinc-based alloy. Easy to injection mould and easy to finish.

Yep, you can snap a "metal" slide with your bare hands without a lot of force.
I hate this.

Anyways I wish they didn't use this crap. I'd happly pay more for better metel parts. This is the reason I'm sketchy on doing maintance on my M24 cause I don't want the threads to strip.
