yes, the stainless is heavier but it helps
keep the front of the gun steady. ever
notice how the tip of the barrel typically jumps up when the average shooter
fires his marker?  it helps alot of players
to have a bit heavier barrel.

The regular freak back seems a little cheap. Stainless is well worth the
extra cash

Not to mention that the stainless back is far more durable, and you're not as
likely to damage the threads on the stainless, unlike the aluminum which for
obvious reasons is more prone to damage.

I need to pickup a stainless back for my freak system.  The main reason is that
a***er I am building is completely nickel plated and the black freak wouldn't
look very good on it.  But I do think a stainless black with a black front (I
have two different front sizes) would look cool (kinda like a DYE Boomstick
type thing).

If you like shiny it's worth it.  If you want to be better hidden it's not.
If you like heavy it's worth it.  If you like light it's not.  If you want
your threads to last forever it's worth it.  If you feel years of service
from aluminum threads are sufficient it's not.

I say it's not :)
