Many pistolsmiths seem to swear by carbon steel barrels in their offerings. As for Kimber, stainless steel barels are used in the "Gold" and "Super Match" offerings. Are there any practical advantages of stainless steel barrels over carbon steel, besides corrosion resistance? Any disadvantages? Just what are the tradeoffs?
