When I settled for a black one, I wanted stainless instead but they were hard to find at that time, unless you wanted to pay almost double the price of a black one. Since I didn't pay the average price for my black one, it would've been triple the price to me. My finish looks great, but probably only because I waxed it, thanks to some advice on the Taurus forum. Even though it's not stainless, my black one has been functioning great, no broken trigger blade safeties, no mag wobble, no parts falling off, 5.5 lb trigger pull. If I were to start over with a stainless one just for appearance sake, I don't know if I would be as lucky with a new one. I had a stainless revolver and a nickle plated 45 when I was security and LE, but that was an open carry situation in all kinds of crappy weather, not CC. I suppose that if I ever need to use the G2 in a DGU I'm guessing the BG probably won't care what the finish looks like anyway.
What does that mean "waxed it?" Like with car wax or somesuch? Is there a thread about waxing a black finish? This intrigues me.
Same question... am intrigued..
It's been a long while back, but when I did a search, this was two of the links I found on this forum. They are not the original post I read however. I just used a liquid car wax I had sitting in the garage, and I lightly applied it. If I happen to find the original post I'll link it.Probably renaissance wax. However Ren wax smells suspiciously just like turtle wax.
