Buds was showing a 3" stainless GP100 for 500 (1:00 am 4-29)but it was the only stainless in stock. They must be selling the crap out of them. They had around 10 of them last time I had looked (about a week ago).
Stainless is Stronger? Can I Get a 2nd Opinion on That. Ill go with the no rust bit, 400 series will show signs of corrosion and will pit when next to another cantaminate. Any info out there about SS being Stronger than carbon steel. Wills in da Swamp
Carbon steel will corrode much more easily than stainless steel, and stainless can be made stronger than carbon steel. Stainless steel is also usually heavier than carbon steel, which helps to control recoil when the gun is fired (recoil is not eliminated, only reduced). Stainless steel can also be polished to a "mirror finish", so it doesn't have to be chrome-plated for that "shine". Probably the biggest "plus" to using stainless over carbon steel, though, is the fact that it is far less prone to "crystalization" than carbon steel. When steel "crystalizes", it becomes brittle, and can break at the worst possible times.just try drilling through both of them and see which is a mofo over the other
Got my GP100 off of Gunbroker for $350 including shipping. They say it was used but it looked brand new except for a little residue on the back of the cylinder. Its a great gun and I recommend it to anyone looking for a revolver.
