If you sand it down yourself it will probably be a lot cheaper I'd say around 15 to 25bucks thats what mine cost to get painted black along with the handle. Just get some 320 grit sandpaper and wet sand it smooth then take it cause there labor rates are $$$.

You seriously only payed $15-25 bucks? Were they painting something else along with it or just the bezel and handle?

There's usually a minimum being that it costs time and money just to get out the paint supplies, gun, etc... few places I've been to usually charged around $80-100 as a minimum for small jobs.

I sanded mine down and painted it myself. I figured i'd try it out and if it didnt turn out well, then send it to the painter. But the NNBS bezel is a bit bigger tho...

Sorry I should have mention that but your right about that, I had it painted along with some other items, so it made it worth while. I try to save up the small pieces to paint with a bigger piece since typically they like to paint dark colors during the same day and time, so I have been told.
