I personally love guns period, stainless, blued, pink, purple, it's all a gun to me. I will admit I would probably change any pink or purple guns finish pretty quick though.
As far as the stainless or blued debate, I think all guns have the potential to look absolutely beautiful in either, especially the 1911, no matter who makes it. For tactical uses I prefer a matte black finish. My off duty carry piece on the other hand is a SA loaded stainless Champion. The stainless lends itslef well to carry because it resists corrosion from body salts, I have had a few "blued" or parked guns corrode from carrying.
I think my all time favorite finish on a 1911 has to be the case hardened look in the Wilson catalog, very sharp. I am nto sure what you really call the finish, but it looks good by any name.
I also like the look of an AR with a nice polished stainless barrel.

Some stainless can be "blued." It takes different salts at a different temperature but it can be done. I think Dave Sams does stainless bluing but I am not positive.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, or, If we all fell in love with the same woman it would be a heck of a fistfight.
I, actually prefer stainless due to the material. Being one which thinks the end results, durability, is worth more than the percieved beauty of other finishes.

OK. Has everyone seen the recently released limited production Colt 70 series in stainless? Pretty nice finish. Only Ed Brown has one better.
Has anyone looked at Tripps web site to see a two-tone, yes two-tone, hard chrome staineless with brushed stainless flats. That's where I'm going once I break-in my Colt.

My 3" Kimber stainless Ultra Carry II isn't ugly; as a matter of
fact, its downright pretty. And OH~! did I mention reliable? Yes, that
is right- even with all types of JHP ammunition~!

I won't buy an 1911 that has those goofy front slide serrations. I own over 30 different 1911 variants and NONE of them has them. The stainless steel 1911s serve a real purpose for those of us who carry guns for a living. I ruined a Sig P-220 after the slide rusted. This happened after I worked a bad multi vehicle wreck in the rain one night and I left the gun in the trunk of my patrol car over in a wet holster over the three day weekend that I was off duty. Since then I've only carried stainelss 1911s or Glocks and had no further problems with my duty weapons rusting.
