    Blued or stainless. If on a 1911, I like either with a light brush polish on the flats. I'm not a fan of coatings or fashion colors.

    I'm partial to finishes that truly protect the gun. Cerakote and nitride top the list right now, with oiled parkerizing on historical guns. A well-applied enamel paint is good. Stainless and blueing next. Case hardening, while beautiful, is not what I'd choose for a shooter.

    yep!
    I am not a collector, although I have a few somewhat desirable weapons, they ALL get shot.
    so to me I like a finish that does what it suppose to ----protect.
    a high gloss Colt, S & W from the past are nice to look at but it takes a lot of care not to mess up that finish, I mean you try to pop the top of just one beer bottle with the trigger guard on one of those and you can see the nick from then on!

    Since bluing is quickly becoming a lost art, I'd have to say if I saw a beautifully blued gun that I was interested in, I'd want that. But, I love stainless guns. They have a clean look and I've always been preferential toward that finish.

    Not a gun, but if you want to see some gorgeous salt bluing, check this video out:

    For their age, I kind of like the finish on these:

    This one needs some pearl grips, though.

    I prefer matte stainless in rifle or handgun. I have blued guns, though, and carry 'em. I don't really care that they get worn, gives character.

    My fave hunting rifle is a stainless Remington M7 in .308 and my fave pocket revolver is either a .38 M85SSUL or my NAA minis for back up. The stainless is superior in resisting pocket sweat and carry. If I pocket carry one of my blued steel autos, I have to oil it down every few days. Pocket sweat is a problem in south Texas in the summer.
