    You can do a good job with Brownell's Moly-Teflon spray paint in either matt black or dark parkerized gray. It requires a completely clean surface (and worked a bit for texture) and then must be hardened or cured at 300-350 degress for 30 minutes. Below is a Colt Officers that I finished this past weekend -- I did bead blast this one first and then applied the coating. Finish is durable and thin.

    Great job, it looks like Deniro's gun in ronin accept he had a govt. model. Yours looks more handy.
    Thanks
