You scratch deep enough through a treated slide or coated slide and you will hit the unprotected carbon steel. You can scratch and gouge all you want on a stainless steel slide and it's still corrosion resistant because stainless steel is throughout and not a coating.

Stainless is great for pots and pans. :dunno:

I have a Springfield Loaded that is all stainless. Not much of a fan, though it's hard to say why. The machining is very rough, and the stainless probably shows that more than a coated steel gun might. :dunno:

Others I have are partly stainless, like the slide on the P229 (which is still has a black finish) and a P938 that is stainless "in the raw".
