i have a card from a guy in sullivan missouri that does moly resin coatings. i see him at a gun show and he had several differant displays that looked reallly really nice. marcus johnston is his name, proguns@fidmail.com is his email. and im sure if thats to much money a good parkerizing job would be an excellent choice aswell.

I had my beat up police trade in 870 refinished by Mac's Shootin Irons. Gun Kote over parkerizing.

The finish retains oil very well, is slick, and is robust. I'm very happy with it and the service. I had a 1911 done up by the same folks.

I had my old police trainer refinished at Arizona Response Systems (ARS) (http://www.arizonaresponsesystems.com/) . They did a real nice job. It is a finish that I can handle and not worry about rust at all. Great for a neglected gun like a HD SG that spends more time sitting than getting used. They were even able to remove an etched-in (shakey hand) police number from the receiver.
I also had a gun done at Hot Flash (http://www.hotflashrefinishing.com/) but this was re-blued and requires the same care as any blued weapon. They did a great job though.
