Galling is an issue when using Corrosion REsistant Steel (AKA stainless) in sliding contact with CRES of the same type.

I hear that Colt uses different types of CRES for the frame, barrel and slide.

In many thousands of rounds through my stainless Colt, I have not experienced any galling. I use Tetra-Gun Grease on the rails and locking lugs, and Break-Free CLP everywhere else.

I wouldn't be concerned with galling with a stainless Colt.
