I did parkerizing on all of mine, used phoshield which turns out as a very nice black color that also matches the original finish pretty well. I've had a couple of kits that were so nice I just refinished the receiver after riveting the trunnions in place and then pressed the barrel, etc., no one knows the difference as the original finish on the other parts was nice enough that it blends right in with the new finish on the receiver.

I also took a little bit of white paint and carefully picked out the lettering/numbers on the front trunnion and top cover as this was how they were originally. Not really necessary but a nice touch of authenticity if you're overly anal like me :)
