    I think the only options you have locally to make your gun "black" is the black chrome and the blueing. Have you seen Armscorp's blueing? Its almost black. Will they reblue in the factory?

    That is the downside of black chrome. It is less durable than plain silver hard chrome.

    Other black finishes applied in the Philippines:

    baked-on polymer-ceramic
    organic coating w/ teflon
    teflon

    I'm really intrigued by the new 'parkarized' Armscor GI's.
    It's park all right, the way it soaks up oil ---but if the display models at the recently-ended show are any measure, there's something else in it that makes black-er, and slightly glossier than the usual gray park.

    El Pres, try contacting Reliable Arms. See if they still offer the finish options they had some years ago. IIRC, meron pa yata sila nung robar-type (NP3?) finish.

    If not, chrome is the most durable. Black chrome, on the other hand, wears out like blueing if properly done. Bad black chrome chips off like ordinary paint. Unfortunately, dito sa atin, I can no longer say sino yung pinaka-okay mag chrome. I suggest you go with somebody you already know you can trust para madali kausapin when something goes wrong. ;)

    Pinaka lowest maintenance ang chrome and will last long if properly applied. Blue looks gorgeous pero you'll need oil wipe downs everytime you touch it.
