Need advice! I am working on a blaster build and have a scope made completely out of brass. I need to make it black but is it best to use a certain primer and paint to finish it, or use "Brass Black" or just take it to a pro auto body shop?

I would get a metal etching primer

like this

And paint it like normal.

Make sure to scuff it up before painting, red scotchbrite at least.

Oh, and don't mistake the etch primer for a fill primer, if you need a fill primer, put it on over the etch.
