stainless open top revolvers?

I've noticed that only Remington types are sold in stainless. Is that true? If so, why?
CNC produced 416 stainless triggers to replace the plastic triggers on Colt Mustangs, Mustang Plus II's, MK IV Government .380's and Sig P238's and P938's. Plus Colt Mustang hardened 416 guide rods, and Llama .32 and .380 recoil spring buttons, checkered nicely and blued.

I had an 1869 Colt in kit form in the 70s that was sold as a stainless steel pistol. It made up into a pretty pistol. Shine like a ruby in a goats a_ _.

Ooops...I mis-typed 1869 when I meant 1860.

There were also the 1851 (490 produced-$$$$) and 1861 (6 produced-$$$$$) 2nd Gen Stainless Steel Colts.

Uberti made 5 different models in SS in the early '80s; but they're harder to find than the Colt's. USFA also made a few, but they're $$$$$ if you can find one.

The why not now is probably related to poor sales when they did make them.
