Durocoat , or the Krylon Camo paints are fine and you can do it yourself. Just rough the stock up with steel wool or very fine sandpaper. There are some video on YouTube on how to do it
I have had several lever actions over the years. A Savage 99, Marlin 336 and Winchester 88. All were fine guns. A consideration is with the Winchester 94 style is its a bit more difficult to mount a scope, but doable. Hornady makes a good lever action round I am not sure all,the calibers.
