Default Teflon vs stainless

Would Teflon coating a blued receiver/barrel provide similar all weather protection as stainless? What about the trigger assembly? Do stainless rifles have stainless trigger assemblies or just the receiver and barrel?

stainless rifles have the same trigger assembly as a blued. No different. At least on remingtons, winchesters, and brownings. I was going to tephlon coat my 700PSS after getting rebarreled. But had a few tell me the tephlon flaked off in an area or two. If its on the gun, it will protect like nobodies business. I went back with the parkerizing.

No it would not since the bore is still chromemoly and would not be as rust resistant. Stainless will rust if not taken care of also. One of the best all weather coatings for a rifle either chromemoly or Stainless is NP3 by Robar. If you were to purchase a Winchester or Ruger stainless model they are pretty much 100 % stainless with some very minor exceptions, floorplate(aluminum ruger) magazine well(blued on Ruger). The trigger assembly on a Remington stainless is electroplated silver. The trigger assembly on Weatherby stainless models is blued...

If a magnet will draw to it, it will rust! If not, then the quality of the stainless is good enough that it will, for the most part be rust free. BUT, even stainless will show a bit of corosion in extreme conditions!

I have a teflon coated SST barrel and action.
It doesn't come off unless you scrape it with another metal.
Like going through a fence and you scrape it hard on the metal it will scratch through the teflon a little. Otherwise it is very tough and have had no flaking in the 5 years I have had the rifle.
