    Raptor Pro II Stainless or Matte Blue finish? Which do you prefer and why?

    123
    I am looking to purchase a Kimber Raptor Pro II in either in Stainless or Matte Blue finish, and would like to know from current owners on your experience with the finishes on both.

    I am moving more towards getting the Matte Blue, but would like to hear likes and dislikes from all of you.

    Thanks for any input.

    @OP... two questions..

    1. Is it going to be a safe queen?
    or
    2. Is it going to be a carry gun?

    If it's going to be a safe queen, buy what you think looks best or what makes you happy.

    If it's going to be a carry gun, a matte finish is usually better in that it is non reflective and in the event your gun is exposed, it won't draw as much attention as a stainless shiny thing will. I own a Raptor Pro II and it is carried daily. It's starting to show some wear, but it gets used a lot. It hasn't spent more than a few days in the safe in the 3-4 years I've owned it.

    It's a little dirty in this pic because this was after day two of a three day class. Changed the grips out for function over pretty, but I'm one of those "It's a tool not a showpiece" kind of guys.
