All other opinions on the matter are pretty ****ing moot, aren't they?

Just beware that, yes, as has been mentioned, that barrel ain't stainless. Hence the regular wipe downs with oily rag.

Carry on sir. Enjoy.
Here's what it looks like now

If you like it, rock on with it.
By the way, flitz or mother's with carnauba should keep that sucker shining like a diamond and offer some pretty good corrosion protection as well.

Well guys I just got off the phone with Sig and was told that removing the blueing from the barrel DOES NOT harm the pistol or alter it's performance in any ways.. Just keep it well oiled and it'll be fine..so there it is.

The bluing is supposed to act as a lubricant for metal on metal contact poor sig your going to shoot it raw and wear the barrel out Over the years you might experience pits and rusting. the barrel has no protection from the elements. Once you lube that barrel up the oil or lube is going to go into the fine little groves and wont wipe down as easy oil will always be stuck in the little pores. have you thought about cerakoting it? Cerakote is a ceramic finish that gets sprayed and baked onto the gun and its strong as hell and protects your barrel from corrosion and its self lubricating to the metal on metal contact it glides better they do make a stainless finish i was thinking about doing my mossberg 500 in satin aluminum but its too pimpin for me heres some sigs i found cerakoted on the web

I found a new barrel on ebay for $89 as a back up just in case,and I also talked to someone at sig while ordering night sights and was told removing the blueing does not hurt the barrel or alter the guns performance as long as I keep it cleaned and lubed ...there is a place close by in Stockton that polishes ,chrome and refinished metals of every kind,I will call them and ask if they cerakote .. I'd do it just to protect,Id like something with a slight tint to it but not so easily noticed when wearing off...thanks

Cerakote has a bunch of colors they even have pimpin shiny colors that shine in the light checkem out on youtube. Cerakote finish is almost impossible to wear off once its backed into the poors of the gun , its nothing like duracoat
