I can't thank everyone enough for the input I got on my 'Contender or Encore' post. Now that I have settled on a Contender I would like to hear your thoughts on one more dilemma: Blue or Stainless and why?
I have both SS and blued barrels. Currently have a SS .223 barrel on a blued frame, with walnut stock. Looks good, and while I normally prefer the look of blued, easy care stainless is growing on me, and looks really nice with a walnut stock.
EIETHER ONE IS A GREAT GUN .I FOUND THE OLDER STAINLESS FRAMES ARE HARDER TO COME BY THEN THE BLUED ONES THOUGH.BUT WHICH ONE YOU GET YOU WILL GET YEARS OF SERVICE OUT OF IT . HAVE FUN AND JOIN THE SICKNESS.JUST MY 2 CENTS WORTH. DAVE......
I WENT WITH A STAINLESS ENCORE I LIKE THE FACT I CAN BRING IT HOME AFTER I HAVE BEEN IN THE RAIN HUNTING (YES YOU ARE RIGHT GAVINATOR IT ALWAYS RAINS DURING DEER SEASON ) TAKE A PLASTIC OR STEEL CLEANING BRUSH OVER THE FRAME AND THEN RUB IT DOWN WITH SOME OIL AND WALA I AM DONE . I SLING MINE SO I USUALLY DONT HAVE NOTHING IN THE BORE UNLESS I HAVE SHOT THE GUN. GET SICK AND GET TWO WE ALL HAVE IT IT IS UNCURABLE , BUT YET SO INVIGORATIING AND ENTERTAINING AND HEALTHY AND A CLEAN SPORT.
