The aluminum parts are anodized and dyed black while the ferrous (steel) parts are coated with manganese phosphate (Parkerized).

Opps. Just noticed that Eklikwhoa already answered your question.

Depends on what company did the lower. Some are anodized and some only coated with different products. Some are both anodized and then coated.
