I was looking into buying a KelTec but didn't want a black one. I found this guy on GunBroker.

GoldenLoki.com

Now I am not pumping him, he just had some info on his site on how he does it and his gallery could give you some ideas. I ended up buying an LCP in raspberry, but I would consider this if I were buying one that I didn't want in black. I was actually thinking a red one and this guy was in driving distance of my house.

Default K G Gun Kote

I've had great results using KG Gun Kote, although I found their satin black was too glossy for my taste, and their flat black was too flat. I mix the two colors 50/50 and the results are very close to many factory blue firearms. The finish holds up to everything but bead-blasting...
