Anodizing a barrel?

Hey all,
Was curious as to what effect, if any, getting anodizing done on an aftermarket barrel (this one being a HammerHead) would have on its performance?

Are there any better (but equally durable) options available for a finish?

Thanks!

I don't imagine it would increase, nor truly decrease performance. The barrel already has an anno on it, though I suppose it would serve to remirror the internal finish.

Durocoat is very durable but would have to be worked around the porting. It's not as flashy by any means, but it'll keep the outside looking perfect and can be removed.

I've seen some nice vinal work on barrels but you have to know how to work with it. Some say it doesn't like to go around objects that are circular in shape, but it can be made to work if the seam is hidden correctly. Vinal is easily removed and comes in tons of colors, again no performance increase though.

Alright, thanks.
Yeah I was never thinking in terms of a performance increase...
... was more worried about it screwing up the inside of the barrel.
Other than that, you've helped a lot, thanks!
