Bead blasting is not a coating or treatment. It is simply little little beads that are blasted by air. On a stainless gun, it is used to "scuff-up" the finish on a very small scale. It gives the appearance of a matte finish. At any time, I can send that same gun off to be polished and have it back looking as shiny as a nickel finish. And I can have it bead blasted again to look like it does now. Stainless is very forgiving, versatile, durable, and low maintenance.
