this weekend i plan on buying a m605. it will primarily be concealed and carried often so i was wondering should i go with the stainless or with the blued version. does one hold up better to being carried or is it totally personal preference of how you want it to look? just thought i would post and get some insight. thanks

Personal preference mostly. I like stainless because it's easier to clean.

I find that the stainless can be a little more expensive and harder to find. At this point you may have to get what you can find in stock. Its tough finding products on the shelf when it comes to guns at this time. I am kinda picky, really like the look of stainless, but the ones that I have seen typically don't look like they have held up well on the show room, where as the blue version appear to show less scratches or imperfections. I purchased a M605 poly this weekend blue version, the gentleman before me got the last SS 605, so I really had not choice afterwards, we talked and compared the different version that we had, I admired the look of his SS 605, but I really like the like the feel and weight of the M605 poly too. Also if you are anal like me about finger prints and smudges on the gun, with SS you have less worries. Either way you have a tried and true version that should serve you very well. Good luck shopping.

If I only had the opportunity to buy the blued 605, I'd go for it...because they are excellent self-defense CC handguns.

However, the matte stainless finish on the 605 is stellar, in my humble opinion!

thanks guys went with the blued version as that is all i could find. but i'm afraid it is going to take a trip to Florida =( when it is loaded the cylinder wont advance and it scratches the back of the brass like the cylinder is too close to the frame.

I would bet you have a build up of packing grease and gunk under the ejector. Get you cleaning kit out, push in the ejector pin/rod and make sure you clean it extreemly well on both the ejector star and the cylinder. From past expeniance I have come to learn that the first cleaning of a revolver is more of a pain and requires more detail than that of a semi auto pistol.

I agree, I'd go with Stainless if you can find/afford it. I love the matte stainless look (not so much polished) and it's a much easier finish to deal with. Way easier to clean and protect and there is something about that raw metal look, especially on a revolver, it's something special.
