SKS Barrel Refinish

Hello Everyone,

A friend of mine has a Norinco SKS that he is trying to off load to me for a meager sum. The barrel has some surface rust in spots. I knocked some of it off with 800 grit paper (with his permission of course) and of course when I did that it went right down to bare metal, the bluing must be super thin on them things. So my question is if I buy this thing, which the rest of the rifle is in great shape. Can I take that barrel and receiver down to bare metal and use some form of matte black paint. Will anything paint wise hold up? I like the look of a matte/flat black or grey looking barrel. For the 250 dollar price tag I don't think I can go wrong.
