Metal finish

Ok, so I got the 1884 action and lock. I am going to brown the barrel so what to do with the action and lock? There is the springfield eagle on the lock but it's very faint and I don't want to lose it. the markings on the action are deep and clear so that is not an issue. Case hardenibg is appealing but expensive but not prohibitively out of reach. I like the idea of brown but I am not sure the astion will take it well. Or I can just leave the original patina. Thoughts?

You gonna pull them pistols or whislte dixie?
