I combed over about 10 websites to pull this info together.

Stainless steel rifles, sometimes called “All-Weather Rifles”, offer better weather protection than standard blued barrels and actions. If you hunt where it rains, or if you bring rifles in out of the frigid cold and have to deal with condensation, they can keep rust away and keep your rifle looking great without having to be as careful as you would with a regular hunting rifle. On a muzzleloader, stainless is extra nice because it helps ward away corrosion due to the propellant and residue left over. Stainless steel rifles are a bit easier to see in the woods, by game as well as other hunters.

Already wanted a centerfire stainless rifle and now you’re just looking for different versions and price points? You’re in the right place! I compiled a list of stainless hunting rifles by price; just scroll until it hurts. Prices listed are current prices local in Canada and the US and can change over time. Note: these are only stainless, centerfire rifles. No rimfire or non-sporting rifles are listed.

My buddy was looking for a new stainless rifle and I couldn't find a list, so I made THE LIST.

I saw this on your FB page. Thanks. I didn't even know Savage made a stainless Axis.

I have my Savage 116 Weather Warrior for 2 years now in .300WM and love it. No problems and not worried about it rusting during our deer months

My next bolt action/hunting/precision rifle will definitely be a stainless. Just have to decide between wood and synthetic for the stock. Thanks for the list!

Y'know, most of the time I don't care for stainless hunting rifles, but I'd REALLY love one of those stainless No.1 Rugers....
