Stainless Or Black LoneWolf Barrels?

Hey all, new here.

Anyways, my question is. I just bought a LW threaded barrel for my Glock 23 (9mm conversion), and shot about 20 rounds through it.

It's black, now I really want a stainless one, to match my .357 Sig conversion barrel.

Is stainless or black better? Or just personal preference? I paid $145 for my barrel, but they won't return it, unless it has defects of course. Would anyone want it? I can take pics, etc. Still have the plastic protector case for it.

Nobody? I was just curious if stainless or black is usually better? I might just go ahead and get a stainless one, and try to sell my black barrel on here, along with two G19 clips.

eye candy vs HOW DOES IT SHOOT?

Color doesn't matter. Do what you 'like'.

Function matters. Stick with what works.

Unless the black is hard chrome I would say the stainless is better.
I don't think they are nitrided. Nitrided might be better also.

Okay thanks guys. Looks like I'm gonna try to sell mine and get a stainless, so it'll match my other barrel.
