That's really odd. maybe they think it can get through a metal detector?

I searched and found this:

The state of Minnesota defines a Saturday Night Special as a pistol other than an antique firearm or pistol where the frame, barrel, cylinder, slide or breechlock is composed of any material with a melting point of less than 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit; or the pistol has any material having an ultimate tensile strength of less than 55,000 pounds per square inch, or any powdered metal having a density of less than 7.5 grams per cubic centimeter. This laws states that any federally licensed firearms dealer who sells aSaturday Night Special pistol, or any person who manufacturers or assemblesa Saturday Night Special pistol in whole or in part, shall be guilty of "agross misdemeanor." This law was passed in June, 1975.
WTF...some ignornat stupid-ass law from the 70's to try and ban 'cheap' firearms to try and control crime?

Seems this was the assinine gun ban rage in the mid 70's:
