    Just clean the bolt with lacquer thinner and cold blue
    or parkerize ( DON'T SAND ).

    You can buy cold blue allmost any where and after your
    done you can oil it ,and unlike paint it doesent biuld up.

    Also it can be touched up after it gets used.

    If you do paint it the paint will wear quickly from contact with the receiver.
