Why are there no annodized snubs on Carters?

I've been looking all over, and I can't find a single picture of an annodized snub on a Carter. Why is that?

I've never owned a Carter, but I believe the snub is stainless steel.

You're correct Jay. There were a very few all AL buzzards made that we're fully anodizing but I don't think Carter offers that.

Stainless is all around better. The guns feel better, they are smoother and they can take a beating without scratches or dents. SS is also more expensive to use and machine, so I find it kind of funny when guys decide they want Aluminum instead of a handmade stainless body.

I know that stainless is better, more durable, more awesome, etc... but from a manufacturing point of view, I don't understand 1 stainless piece on an aluminum gun in an industry dominated by aluminum guns.

I mean, if we want to talk about durability, mass, awesomeness, let's look no further:
