S&W model 10 refinish options?

I have a well used model 10 that I picked up. It is functionly solid good lock up and timing. But it must have someone truck gun or something. Quite a few rust spots with some pitting. annd just looks like heck. I have used some fine grit sandpaper to to remove the rust and keep the bare metal well oiled for now.

It is a good shooter and I would like to get it refinished. I see S&W offers a beadblast blue finish. I am thinking something like or having parkerized. I don't think duracoating it would would work very well. Any other choices out there

Any plated finish, or ion-bonded finish will hold up better than bluing.
Parkerizing is a good, inexpensive finish.

I don't care about "looks"

It is so easy for me to recommend service and finishes from AND

I can personally recommend both Mr. Cogan's hardchrome and Mr. Barkmann's NP3.

NP3 is my current personal favorite finish.
