Tonight I bought a shady plastic tto from a dollar store on the lower east side of nyc of all places. It has xd on the endcaps. Endcaps are plated plastic, the blade mounting bar inside is plated plastic, tto knob is plastic, plate/safety bar s plastic, doors seem to be paper thin metal, handle is plastic I THINK but it may be aluminum. Seems aggressive. Will give it a shot and report back.
