Metal refinishing on a colt commander

I recently acquired a Colt Commander that had a bad case of surface rust...totally discolored the slide without any pitting. There are so many refinishing methods and products out there...Robar, Cerahide, Duracoat, Ionbond...and I have never had a firearm done. What do you recommend and at what price? The Colt will be carried concealed and I would like a satin black.

Thanks, Bimmer

Cera-Plate II

This one is in Cera-Hide. It's about 10 years old and still looks like new.

If I have it right, CPII is suppposed to be the most corrosion resistant finish, correct? Sure does look nice!!

Yes.

The other one is great as well. Hard to mar.

Why not rust blue it?
