Nitto was the chrome coloured 0 degree 110mm (or was it 120mm?) stem which I'd seen, although they hadn't even deigned to say whether is was 1 1/8th threadless ahead or not. I'll look into the others although the UK distributor linked from Salsa's site doesn't sell any crmo stems now.
edit: Sinz Racing haven't even bothered saying what material they use on their (admittedly) nicely designed site:
The first front-loading, hollow-forged stem made for BMX, Sinz Pro Lite stems are some of the lightest and strongest BMX stems available. Hollow forging results in a much stronger and more reliable stem than CNC machining does. Pro Lite stems fit 1 1/8” steerer tubes, come in 50- or 55-millimeter lengths and are available in four colors.
The comparison to CNC machining implies an Aluminum Alloy though.
Nothing coming up with a search in google for: cr-mo tioga stem (unless you meant all of those use cr-mo BOLTS. I meant the actual material for the stem should be crmo)
Sunlite: couple of chrome coloured steel (hi ten?) stems available if I order from the USA. Most results seem to be quill. Couple of threadless models. Suitable one is 22.2mm which is quite a difference from my current 31.8mm handlebars. I don't mind going down to 25.4mm bars if necessary but 22 is too much since my gear and brake shifters/leavers would end up needing shims (or shim for the bars).
Ubi: Similar result to Sunlite. Like i said, there's a gap in the market here with no-one proviing a decent range (with various options for colour, size, steering diameter) with cr-mo materials for stem AND hardware, not just the hardware (bolts).
So far the best solution is a bar and stem combo where it's welded into one body. However these again are very limited in the choices for dimensions, colours etc.
