12L14 might be more prone to rust though.

Unless you have a chrome or nickel plater nearby.

ehh....If I chrome them, they'll look way out of place...the slide has old nickel plate, that is a bit rough...

I think maybe if I have some 303 SS I'll just go with that......leave it kinda brushed surface...not super polished...except for the handle itself.
