Shockwave in stainless vs. black

I tried to search the forums but didn't see anything about this specifically.

In real world use, is there a definitive corrosion resistance benefit to the 590 JIC in Cerakote-Stainless vs. the standard 590 in Matte Blued?

Whichever one I pick up will be a combination house and truck gun. My gut tells me that the finish won't matter much either way but I appreciate anyone's personal experience.

The stainless gun will be much more resistant to rust.

The frame is aluminum, the "stainless" barrel is Cerakoted with a grey "stainless" color as is the aluminum receiver. The bore, no matter the color of the outside is naked steel. The "stainless" version wouldn't be amy more rust resistant than any other Cerakote color. But probably a bit more so than the flat blued model.

I assumed the aluminum receiver was painted, and the barrel was actually stainless.

According to Mossberg specifications it is "Cerakote stainless"
SPECIFICATIONS
Gauge 12
Capacity 6
Chamber 3"
Barrel Type Heavy-Walled
Barrel Length 14.375"
Sight Bead
Scope N/A
Choke Cylinder Bore
Barrel Finish Cerakote - Stainless Steel
Stock Finish Raptor Grip / Corn Corn Forend w/ Strap
Weight 5.3
Length 26.37"

Maybe I'm wrong, but what would be the point of Cerakoting an already stainless steel barrel?

Thank you for the replies. I suppose there might be a marginal difference, although I'm not sure it's enough for me to pass up the $300 deal I've got on a new black Shockwave.

^^^^^
Then the fun begins. Rail, laser, flashlight, side saddle, Opsol Mini Clip, and TALON grip.

Oh yeah! I hadn't thought of the aftermarket "decorating!" The Shockwave does scream for some add ons...

I doubt I'll get the mini clip as I will shoot the 2 3/4 inch shells (not the mini shells). But I do put Talon Grips on all my handguns. I didn't know they made them for the Shockwave.

The side saddle is also a strong consideration.

If that gun was made of stainless steel the price would be three times what it
sells for now
Aluminum is one of the easiest metals to machine, Stainless steel is one
of the hardest metals to machine.
