Most adapters are aluminium alloy. Sometimes with stainless steel or chromium/nickel plated steel bits on the lens bayonet side. None of my adapters are brass.

None of my the mounts on my cheap adapters are in the least bit magnetic. The only steel parts are the screws holding the mount face on.

Interesting, I just found several Sony and Minolta A-mount lenses and the 600si have ferrous mount faces, but all the Sony E-mount camera and lens mounts I tried are non-magnetic.
