    What sort of gun are you speaking of with the aluminum reciever. I have several with aluminum recievers and have yet to have an issue. As with all guns you should clean and maintain them properly and they should last a lifetime(relatively speaking). Clean oiled guns are your friend. I don't use anything different on the aluminum guns as opposed to my steel guns.---Matt
