    It all depends on the quality of the finish. I have seen blued that has chipped when walking through light brush and I owned a stainless rifle that surface rusted if you looked at it wrong. I tend to prefer stainless for for my handguns but I have started to Cerakote all of my hunting rifles because it wont rust looks good and I can touch up nicks and scratches on my own. With where i hunt and how rough i hunt that is the most important part to me.

      I own multiple examples of both. I really like the stainless and synthetic combination for hunting in bad weather. But when it comes to aesthetics it is really hard to beat a nice bluing job with good wood. I recently bought a Ruger #1 and sometimes I just get it out and look at it. It is just downright beautiful. (wife says I need help)

          FirstBubba, I was told that when I bought the case. So I would leave the gun out over night after use to bring to room temp to prevent the condensation. I also have two young ones and the wife babysits so leaving it out is a NO-NO! I have also been told to leave your muzzle loader in you vehicle or garage overnight to keep this from happening and ruining the primer and/or powder. If you hunt in the cold Friday and plan to hunt Saturday morning. However with the new inline ML with quick removal breech there really is no need to do this unless your lazy.

          Carl, I don't have to worry about the 870 anymore it I traded for another gun. I will keep this in mind for my other guns, but I never really have had a problem with them. I'm pretty particular about cleaning my guns after every use, so they get a good cleaning, oiled, and wiped down with a silicone cloth.
