It's cast aluminum, which cannot be annodized, which means it's powdercoated. It's still metal, but it's not like a high quality milled frames found on other markers.

just curious...but why can it not be anodized? is it because of the imperfections that the casting process leaves?

It seems like SP never used any high quality aluminum in any of their products. Aside from the frames, I've seen some Shocker bodies and frames as well as some the Dynasty body get pitted pretty badly after being re-annodized
