Charger TD adjustment knob Material?

As you can see here in post #11 I've blackened the bolt of my Charger.

Official CHARGER pic thread. Show off your setups!

I want to continue the blackening of the Charger. Does anyone know what material the TD adjustment rings are made of? It's strongly magnetic so I think it may be regular steel and not stainless steel. I can do regular steel easily. This would give me a totally black Charger.


Update: I tried the blackening liquid on the adjustment rings and it did nothing. It may be that the rings are magnetic stainless steel or the rings are plated. It will have to stay silver unless i find out what the rings are made of and if I can work with that.

It might work. I worry about the surface that presses against the barrel with the pressure and rotation of the barrel when removed or installed. It might crack or wear the Ceracoat. I'm not familiar with Ceracoat so I don't know. If I'm able to checically blacken the rings there is nothing to crack.
