Common Sense is NOT common.
Is that 20 years of experience or 3 years of experience repeated 6.66 times?
A smart man only believes half of what he hears, a wise man knows which half.

That said, I'm no metalurgist, not a gunsmith, nor a machinist. I just remember reading somewhere that it was solved as an issue, and I think it was S&W that figured it out: around 1991 they suddenly had a boatload of new models of stainless automatics...not that surprising since they have had stainless revolvers for donkey's ages, and were the first to make stainless autos for the Navy Seals' "Hush Puppy" silent 9mm. Those being to silence guard dogs around villages in the Mekong during the Vietnam war. Yea, they were working on them even back then.
And S&W struggled a great deal with making it work well/last...I think even decades later they were still trying to make it work, because of their experiences with the SEAL project (long since abandoned) made them see the payoff of a handgun that won't rust.
Any quality modern stainless handgun from a reputable manufacturer like S&W, Ruger, Colt or many others, I wouldn't concern myself with this issue, because it's solved. But if you buy one from the early 1980s...it may be a collector's item more than a "high round-count shooter".
How many mags are comming with this again?
