Nathantc,

In the past I have went the easy way. If you can have a tool shop bead blast your barrel. If not then clean the barrel good with break and parts cleaner then use the High Temp Wood Burner Stove Paint *Flat Black! on it as you mentioned. The one I did lasted a very long time without bead blasting it. And if I ever got it against metal or something that scratched the paint off I just touched it up with the same paint and it blended perfectly. Only had to touch it up twice in about 6 years. So it is very durable. Just mask off the parts you do not want to paint like your Gas Block and etc.

It's more important to get it clean. Remove all dirt and oil.

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

Buy a sheet of the cheap scotch bright at walmart, buff the steel w it till it turns dark. Wipe w clean tshirt piece then black rustoleom for outdoor steel. Make sure to tape off anything you dnt want painted. A wad of cotton ball in the muzzle also allows you to paint the muzzle without fouling ur riflings with paint.
