I would buy a steel trigger frame if I were you.
I would not buy an aluminum receiver. They are much lighter, but the ones I had (27A5 pistol) showed a lot of wear at the feed ramp.
My $.02 worth.

I agree in theory with the other board members,that steel is more durable,but I have put over 4000 rds thru my aluminum receiver Thompson with no cracking or visible signs of excessive wear.one caveat,I had PK(our resident Thompsonsmith) build a buffer system for my bolt which reduces the stress quite a bit.There is a board member that makes these buffers with an EZ-Pull spring replacement system.maybe the others will chime in with his contact info.
