    Not sure why you said "sorry to disappoint you", I am very aware that Sig makes stainless, I was just saying mine have always been blued. :) I do think the stainless is a very sharp look. Less chance (to no chance) of holster wear.

    I live in AZ where corrosion is not really an issue, but I think I might choose stainless as a strong contender for my next weapon.

    Tenifer, with a nice black phosphate coating on top.

    The "Sorry" is because your blue gun is stainless.

  7. You need one more option on the poll.

    Don't care, no preference.

    I don't really have a favorite finish. I own nickel, blue, stainless, parkerized, annodized, case hardened and chrome guns. I ain't picky about what the finish is. If I don't like it, I have no problem changing it.

    I have both, really 3, stainless, blued, and tenifer, so I really don't have a preferance

    Blackened stainless. I like the finish SIG uses, whatever they call it.

    What? No nickel plating? Sheesh.



    And no, that's not chrome or hard chrome, it's POLISHED NICKEL plating. :) At least that's what it says on the case it came in. :D Thank you Rock Island Armory/Armscor.
