I read the LW50 thing and was thinking, "aw hell...this would be fine on full-auto" but stainless...I'm not sure. What say you all?
I would say if most of your shooting is precision LaRue seems to be a great option, if you are just doing mag dumps and testing durability I'd say why not go with a chrome-lined option. It's your money but stealth products are built for accuracy in mind. To me it's one of those things like using a $1,000 sushi knife for opening a plastic package, will it do it? Sure but why not just use a pair of scissors?
