Upkeep of the stainless is a little easier, but not enough for you to get a stainless if your preferences run more toward the blues. Personaly I much prefer the apperance of the stainless, so I get the best of both worlds.
I have stainless RVs too. I thought they may be nasty in the bright sunlight, but if you black the sights they are fine. Pluses with BP is you can see any buildup in tight spots. You get a steel ejector housing and they look great too. Around here when I got mine a few years back they were running about $25 more, now I see them for the same money around $400. I slapped a wolf spring kit and some gunfighter grips on and they have been flawless performers. I started out with a couple of colt clones and they were something else.
I shoot a pair of stainless Vaqueros in .44-40 with the Eagle "Gunfighter" grips and they clean up quickly and don't bind up for an entire match. I spray down the muzzles after about 5 stages with a water-filled "allergy inhaler" and never have any problems. And as Howdy says, you don't have to worry about the finish. :grin:
