Fact is, in my humble opinion, there just isn't any cogent reason to craft an AR receiver out of stainless steel.
I disagree, when I was pricing out parts for my match rifle I looked long and hard at the stainless steel receiver only because of the added mass. A lot of match rifles tip the scales at double what a normal AR weighs, so every little bit helps.

In the end the difference in mass wasn't enough to overcome the difference in price and I passed.
