I was looking at a few different Buckmark pistols at a local sporting goods store. I noticed that for new pistols they seemed pretty beat up (scratches on the slide and barrel). Iím not sure if the wear was due to poor handling at the store or if the bluing was prone to wearing off. What have been your experiences with the blued finish; and are the stainless steel barrels more durable?
Thanks in advance for the info.
