Figured nickel more bang for the buck. How likely is it to eventually flake however?
I've only owned 2 nickel colts and they didn't flake, but I sold them to help fund my bright stainless collection. I think you could get more bang for your buck going nickel, but you won't have to worry about stainless flaking.

Right now the Market says Bright Stainless. I like Bright as well but there is something to be said for the "Right" Nickel guns. Man when they are new and perfect they are hard to beat.

If I didn't want to spend years working on the collection I would go out and obtain the Brights, they are much more readily available.

If time and money were no object, I would seek the Nickel line-up buying only New, Perfect guns. This would be a much harder chore than the Bright. Do you take the easy way out or like a challenge?

If the requirement is a gun that will actually be shot and not be a safe queen, I have to go with the Bright Stainless finish, although a flawless Nickel specimen is hard to beat visually.

Now that I know about this Firing and Carrying thing, move my vote over to Bright Stainless. Nickel is not the way to go.
