One thing to remember is that bending the metal generates heat (friction from bending) which can degrade the metal and cause breakage. If you bend a little and then wait for a while (I like to wait an hour), you can bend some more. Patience, and a straight barrel, will be your reward.

Also why would you need to go to a painting service for a simple block paintjob and quick drybrush?

Just put the barrel longways into a pair of tweezers and apply pressure to straighten. Rotate barrel as required to straighten it in different planes. Easy.
