Default What type of finish?

If someone was to have a blued (carbon steel) receiver, and a stainless steel barrel, what finish would work well for that combination? It would need to be black or black/blue, durable, and somewhere between satin and glossy.

Any ideas?

Someone has got to know of something that would work.

Ion Bond DLC coating will work, and it is one of the toughest finishes on the planet.
