i wouldnt think it would matter, as long as you take good care of your guns. i probally would go for the SS though cause im just the type that wants the most expensive.

All my guns are stainless, for no other reason than I like the way they look.

ABSOLUTELY worth the extra money in my opinion.
Just simply so much easier to clean for whatever reason and it is much more forgiving than blued if you get into a situation (or too lazy) to properly clean it after a hunt.

I have had a Thompson Center Scout Blued for 17 years - not a spot of rust. I have a stainless Knight T-bolt that started showing pitted spots after one season. They we're both given the same care. To me stainless is not worth the extra.

Steelman...that's ironic, considering your handle!!!! \:\)


I keep wanting to buy a stainless ML, but I only ML hunt about 5-7 days per year with the ML. Last year only 2 days, one year I bow hunted during ML season. Just cannot justify buying one for so few days spent hunting. My old American Knight, fires everytime, shoots straight...just can't justify the cost!

Nope. I've seen stainless barrels corrode just as fast as a blued barrel. In addition, those stainless barrels stick out like a sore thumb in the woods.

As I get older, I realize that hunting is a very sensual experience. By that, I mean the total experience is from all the senses..sight, sound, smell, etc.

I spend a lot more time looking at my rifle than shooting it, and I really like the looks of a matte stainless barrell with a black stock. So that's what I have.

But I agree with others; from pure functionality, stainless isn't that much different than a decent blued finish.
