Maybe try nickel plating. That will look like stainless and won't rust like carbon steel.
But don't treat it as if it's stainless because nickel isn't and the gun will rust.

Tiny imperfections in the plating allow water or sweat to penetrate to the steel underneath and the rust shows up as rusty "pinpricks" that keep coming back.
