Although I love my 995 Carbine, I did not like the look of the receiver cover "bluing". I think it makes the rifle look "cheap". I decided to re-coat the receiver cover with a different look. I used VHT Hi Temp Wrinkle finish paint, which has been around since my '55 Chevy days..... I also did the same to the muzzle brake. It's a very durable finish. You can bake it in a oven (my mother wanted to kill me way back when I did my valve covers in her oven) or use a heat gun to cure it.
