    Stainless? Nickel Plated? Blued?

    Had a similar post on GRRN, but was wondering what kind of finish you prefer on your wheelies. For me, it is always stainless. I do own several blued revolvers, however, had they offered the same ones in stainless--I would have bought them instead. With revolvers, I like shiny.

    Stainless.

    It's almost CF proof.

    Me, I like them all. I find a use for each. There is little as neat as a nice nickel single action. Stainless has its uses, but blue is a better colour for fighting guns. Plus you can't have a Turnbull colour-case hardened stainless gun. And those puppies really ARE nice.

    Stainless for me, always, if an option.

    I can't tolerate a dirty gun. And stainless won't rub off under a brass brush with Hoppes #9. Don't ask how I know that blueing wears off under a brass brush and Hoppes. It's...(sniff)...a...(sob)...sensitive...subject...
