Does anyone know whether the M4-2 has brass top and bottom plates?
Some places (web sites) I have seen, say yes (even though it states that 
they were black chromed). Other people say they look ugly because they WERE 
black chromed (which I guess insinuates that they were the first with zinc 
allloy top and bottom plates). Reason: A friend of mine has a Mint M4-2 and 
was considering whether or not to strip it back and have it PAINTED black. I 
said "man you are crazy and you will wreck it" He said no "I think its 
Brass". I am alos interested in getting one and would like to know.
