This may be the thread you are referring to - http://www.cncguns.com/forum/index.php?topic=919.0

Sence you are building a pair this is what I reccomend.

buy enough material to make 3 actions ( cause your going to screw up one).
rough cut all your action pcs, and send out to heat treat ie normilize harden temper to around 36-40rc. also send out your other parts as well that are the same material.
then finish the actions.
Soft material will gall.

the reason for the o1 is because it will harden harder than 40 series material.

if you short cut on the heat treating process you will more than likely kill or injure yourself.
you wont find CHEAP already heat treated material to do this JOB. your going to easily have a few hundred bucks in material and another 100 or so in heat treating.

There was a really cool build thread  on this gun last year or the year before floating around. I wish I could find it. its how I found this forum so it might be linked or in here. It was an absolutely AWSUM thread on the gunmetal build. I believe the guy was a retired airforce sergent.
