I have an Ithica 49 SS .22 mag. The black on the receiver is peeling and chipping just about every time I take it out anymore. What should I put on it that would hold up and look decent. Its not steel so blueing is out. Not sure if its aluminum or what. I had one a number of years ago(working on getting it back) that I refinished. That material looked different than this though, that was more of a gold/tan color where this is very light silver in color. On that one I cold blued the receiver along with the barrel and came out looking sorta like a case hardened look. Looked kinda neat so I left it. This gun looks great except for the receiver.
