    The clue is in the name of the steel, Stains - LESS. TLC is still required for all rifles.

    Finn, how do you explain the french designation... inoxydable... meaning non-oxidisable, or rust free (rostfrei, "rust free" is the German designation)?

    A quick wipe over with an oily rag will save you tears later on!

    I'll throw my tuppence worth in .

    There are rustfree steels however they are totally unsuitable for use in firearms in most applications.

    What "we" know as stainless is a range of alloy steels and the range is huge and they range in strength and brittleness for soft and mallable to tough and brittle.

    The amount of people who assume that because the gun is stainless it requires no care is unbelievable .

    I’m surprised no one has had a bash a making a ceramic rifle, like the glockpistol, although you may end up in a conversation that goes something like:

    "Nice rifle mate, what make is it?

    "Wedgewood"

    Doesn’t have the same ring to it.

    I have a early ruger stainless and it handles all weathers just wipe over with a towel if wet and put back in the safe.

    Look after it more/better & use an oily rag more often.
