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
And it doesn't rust.
I love my stainless guns. Of course my Glock is very nice also. lol
I do... came complete with rust on the barrel. no extra charge.
Its all good now, but my other 1911s have never seen rust, period !
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.
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.
I have no problems cleaning stainless steel guns.
