I'm thinking of getting the cruiser with the door breach on the end. I know it really a "just for looks" thing but I like the way it looks. The gun is parkerized. Is this a good thing ? I have heard that it scratches easy, is this true ? The salesman told me the persuader is basically the same gun, it comes with a pistol grip & full stock, is blued with no breacher, & about $40 bucks cheaper. What should I do ? I like both but the cruiser is just mean looking.

It's the same gun with different furniture so it's a matter of preference. The finish is as durable as most other guns but it will scratch if you hit it on something. Just paint but the 500s are durable and reliable. The biggest difference is the way you aim so you need to definitely practice with the cruiser since you don't have the natural point of aim you have when you shoulder a rifle and the tendency is to shoot high left. I use the cruiser as a HD gun since it helps with tight corners and, although it looks cool, the breacher does add a few inches. They also make different barrel lengths so that might make a difference with the shortest being a 5 shot.

If you end up getting a light for it, get a good one. The cheap barrel mount stuff will rattle right off.

26 years old. No telling how many rounds through it.

Thanks for the reply. The main concern I have is the finish. I like the flat look of parkerized but I dont want it to scratch easy & rust. Is the blued finish more reliable ?

The blue is not any more reliable or durable than Park'd.

Tough choice because both are cool looking,

The sandstorm looks cool in the pic, but the ones i have seen in person had flakes of paint coming off. I like the park look.
