    I have the same thing done for the 3/4" stainless bands on my custom goose calls. If your looking for the black shiny look, akin to gun bluing, your wanting a black Ti N coating (titanium nitride). You need to check for local commercial platers in your area for this service. I'll warn you, it's usually not easy to find someone that does that. If a flatter type black will work, you use black oxide (zinc) which seems to easier to find in most areas.
