The one you linked to on Amazon was referred too as a SOLID brass unit. They made a direct reference to it in the title.
Buyer beware these days. Diligence is as easy as a magnet in your pocket. I.e. It looks like brass, but a magnet is sticking to it? Hmmm. Clad/coated?- not sure what the process is called. Magnets have never stuck to brass. It's not to say that an internal part or 2 isn't metal though. Costs just as much & lasts about a week!
If in question, buy from a big box store & return if unhappy.
