Another questions here... I just watched a YouTube video said the stainless version of HW rifles are 'stainless steel LOOKS' only and actually it's nickel-plated and NOT durable... However I never found anything wrong on my Stainless steel HW30s...

And the same time, I actually like the good quality finished blued barrel and action on my HW35E too.

And it's always the special version just sold faster than the normal version. So except there's a preowned coming out, I don't think I can find a stainless HW97 now. I will contact D&L later to see if they have the plan to refill some stock of these, but even so, I think the new stock will be here in Canada at least half year later due to the experience of the HW30 case...

Do you like White or Black ?!

Be careful with words, you will find that the rifles are referred to as "stainless", not "stainless steel". The former is just a qualitative descriptor for what is in this case a corrosion resistant plating. Stainless steel refers to a class of steels containing among other things Cr, Ni, and C.
So, you are correct that the HW stainless will be only plated, and plated on the outside The inner surfaces can still rust.
I prefer black and blued. :drinkers:

Hmmm~ yeah... Wording is important although we are not lawyers...

I think the 'stainless' is actually means 'finger print proof': no stains can stay... Because the shiny blued barrel is soooo easy to leave the finger prints as evidence for who touches it....

===
For the plated matt finish, how about the bore?! Same treatment or is not plated but same as the blued barrels? Anyone know about it?

My Benjamin Classic (early version) was plated, but the bore was not - the rifle had the same innards as a blued rifle. Suspect the tolerance would be difficult to maintain if the bore was plated, and as you said, it wouldn't be durable.

I find the stainless easier to keep clean, but the bluing is beautiful on them

The term stainless steel is used way to often, plating..coating etc. Pure stainless steel isn't magnetic, and expensive to say the least and a real pain in the butt to work with. I like the black and blue look myself, simplicity at it finest.

So much misinformation! Stailness steel refers to a class of materials, only a small subset of which is non-magnetic. The austenitic stainless steels are non-magnetic (including the cheaper ones like ASTM 316); martensitic, precipitation hardened, and ferritic-pearlitic stainless steels are quite magnetic. Take your favorite knife and test it with a magnet... 18/8 is the most widely used stainless steel for knives. :ANAL:

416 stainless for rifle barrels (my .375), is magnetic, but the new muzzle break is very much less so, being only mildly magnetic
to a rare earth magnet - I just tested 'them'. The 416 is very nice machining, compared to 4140 or 4150 chromemoly (normal CF rifle barrels).
