    Stainless Pistols Suck!

    Don't get me wrong I LOVE MY COLT. But good lord man is it a pain to clean. I found my self not taking it out this weekend to put maybe 50 rds through it. Just because cleaning it is a chore and a half. My buddy has a s&w 686(Revolver) to clean and I thought that was bad. Try moving parts on an autoloader! Yikes

    Buy a Glock and just throw it away when it quits working...if it ever does.

    What are you using to clean it with? I've never had a problem with stainless. In fact, it's far easier in my opinion.

    It's easier to see gunk on stainless too. I definitely prefer stainless.

    I'm with that. I'd much rather clean stainless than blued

    I have the model 66 SST...the Combat Magnum. I dont find it difficult at all to clean. Nor were my SA SST models difficult
    The problem might be with the "singer" and not the "song"!!!

    I'm not being serious. I obviously chose stainless. But I was gettin rings around the muzzle that my cleaning solvent would not remove. A friend just gave me a few of these special lead removal wipes and they work awesome. As for the Stainless being easier to see? absolutely. I own an m&p 40 and a 92fs. that are blued and I find myself taking longer to clean them with no real visual reminder.

    A gun that shows no wear is a safe queen. All of my guns are clean, but worn in all the right places. The performance has not been degraded because of it, and they aren't on the 'trading block,' so all is well. They have ...character.

    Besides, it's easier to see the dirt and grime when you shoot them hard enough!

    I just cleaned my glasses and realized it wasn't my glasses. Thats the dirtiest gun I think I've ever seen. Looks like desert or beach sand.

    I use to laugh at comments like this. But not any more.
    I just bought my second Glock and am now a fan. Not a Glock nut, but a fan.
    They are one of the most accurate, easy to take care of, light, no nonsense pistols you can buy.
    Only a few other brands rank that hi for me. So since the Glock will probably not quit in his life time, it would be a sure buy.

    I couldn't disagree more.

    I never have a problem cleaning my stainless guns.

    In fact, it's far easier in my opinion.

    I've noticed that I'm buying more and more stainless guns.

    As far as buying a gun and letting it go uncleaned and then throwing it away - is not the way I act.

    Not as quickly anyhow - stainless is not rust proof - just rust resistant.
