Default Nicest Colt Stainless finish

Hey everyone
Right now I own a O1980RG "Rail Gun" (not crazy about the name but it's a great shooter and looks good). My next 1911 purchase will be a Colt and I was wondering which model had the nicest brushed stainless finish. Based on pictures it looks like the Special Combat Government is the nicest but I doubt I'll get one anytime soon, there's the XSE, Series 70 (I'm not getting a second Rail Gun, gotta mix it up a little) etc. I only want a full size gun by the way and NO ALUMINUM.
Thanks all!

The funny thing is I was originally going to PM him but felt like this information should be made public so that the same question doesn't get asked again lol.

This is the "BEST" Colt SS finish EVARR!



I wasn't happy with the finish on my XSE so I bead blasted it to a frost finish.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Fair enough, I'd go with the Hard Chrome Model O1970CM.
