Definately metal,what kind I dont know,its fairly soft,I've used a dremmel on it to enlarge the battery area and it took off material pretty easy

do you think milling a frame into the bottom could be risky then?

Wouldnt recommend it,seems like it would be too soft for a dovetail to hold up over time
Are you doing a special project with this?Just curious why youd want to dovetail the frame instead of using an adapter,another tricky part would be how to hold the ASA on(assume you are wanting to use one),youd have to put some kind of setscrew to hold it on also

It's definitely aluminum, but it may be a softer, low-grade aluminium other than 6061. I'd go with a separate rail.
