    I am going to purchase a Mill Pro PT145 in the next couple weeks and am wondering if there is any advantage to one over the other besides looks? Any info you guys can offer is greatly appreciated!

    Your answer is contained in the question.

    :rolleyes:
    Stainless will resist rust better, might be a consideration for IWB carry if you're a sweaty lad. Nothing is rust-proof though, so keep it cleaned and lubed no matter which one you get.

    What I should have asked are there any mechanical advantages to one over the other?
    I understad the rust issue but isn't a concern as I clean my guns often.
    Thanks.

    Only thing I have heard is that carbon steel runs a little smoother than stainless steel. I'm sold on stainless guns myself. Easy maintenance and looks awesome.
