removing paint from metal and wood

SCORED....

i went to the elk expo in Benezette, PA today. i stopped by Elk county arms& ammo and SCORED on a single shot NEF 10 gauge, 28 inch barrel, full choke $245.00
its covered in an ugly home made camo job but the gun locks up tight and the bore looks like a mirror. needs re-done, needs a limbsaver recoil pad. will add "after" photos when i can.


Question: how do i remove the paint from the metal with out harming the bluing ? same for the wood ?



not overly concerned about the wood as i can simply refinish the forearm and stock


i am also going to add a limbsaver recoil pad in an effort to tame the 10 gauge...stay tuned

lacquer thinner on a rag and carb cleaner for the hard to get spots. Zip strip should work on the metal if its a heavy paint.

You might look into someone with a soda blaster. Don't know how it would do with the bluing, but it works great on wood and won't hurt it a bit

I've used that orange stripping stuff on wood and it works like a champ.


Follow it up with mineral spirits and then wet sand with mineral spirits.

It called CitriStrip. I used it remove the clearcoat off aluminum wheels and this mod seven I brought back from the dead, it's owner "refinished" it with some kind of black paint and a cheap brush
The metal? Good 'ol lacquer thinner. No, it won't damage the bluing.

I also vote for CitriStrip.
I recommend it in bohunr's post up in the Turkey forum also.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Naval Jelly will remove the bluing. If you want to save the bluing, don't use Naval Jelly.
