Gunkote, alumahide (brownells) or durakote. Brownells sells them all in spray cans pre-mixed if you are not air compressor savy. The sprayh cans cost a littel more but it is a good way to find check colors, application techniques for product, etc...before you invest in an air compressor or air brush kit.

Prep work is EVERYTHING with these products.

Duracoat is simple, cheap and really works well.

Brownell's and a heat gun will do wonders.

I've used alumahyde and guncote, and they are good, but I use strong solvents to clean my rifles and nothing really stands up to that. Now I use krylon. It is cheap, everywhere, and comes off fairly easily if you want to try another color. It's fun to try all different patterns if you are in the mood.
