    Is it possible to have a stainless barrel(well any part for that matter) blued or parkerized?

    It is possible to blacken stainless steel in a process like bluing although with a different chemical bath.
    Robar does it.
    I don't think you can phosphate (Parkerize) stainless.
    It can also be blasted and coated to about any color.

    Parkerizing is done in a stainless steel tank and the tank remains unchanged.
