    Ronbo, if you live anywhere near central Pennsylvania, there is a small shop called Blackcote Incorporated located near the small town of Liverpool, PA, that does excellent work. I had a Model 700 rifle receiver changed from gloss blue to matte black to match the Leupold scope that I will be using on it when the barrel comes from the company making it. He can beadblast any texture of matte before the metal is colored and I thought his charge of $25 to do my receiver and bolt was very fair.

    A link to his website is above.

    The one Milt is suggesting did two for me, a red one and green one. They did a great job. You will need a gunsmith to get the recv stripped completely down. There were two parts I could not get out

    You can even powder coat them yourself if you want. Email me and I'll walk you through it. This is a receiver that I stripped down, taped off and then sand blasted clean before powder coating the lower area red.

    The above link to Cerakote is a good one.

    H-S Precision refinishes many of their tacticals for the FBI, SS, BATF, etc. with their ceramic coatings.

    These are beautiful and hardy finishes. I have a couple of their samples done on aluminum-nice looking.

    Pat, it's threaded on, but you really have to heat it up. The thread sealer that they use is really strong stuff.
