I was wondering if there is a preference on the Bottom Metal material (BDL Hinged Floorplate)?
I would use stainless steel because it is not coated and you don't have to worry about wiping
it down every time someone handles it and like the blued steel it adds some strength to the
stock where as the aluminum does not.
The aluminum is painted and scratches very easy.
