Removing old duct tape...

I have a nice T/C hawken Flintlock that was given to me by a good friend years ago. For some odd reason he wrapped the barrel in camo duct tape, and its probably been on there for 10+ years. I was going to try and remove it and clean the gun up, but don't know what would be best for removing the tape residue. Any Suggestions?

WD-40 should remove any tape residue

Re: Removing old duct tape...

Never used it on an entire barrel before but I have handled alot of guns that had tape or stickers placed on the metal. I use alcohol wipes to break the adhesive bond and clean them off without damaging the firearm. They come in bulk packs at the drug store, and it usually only takes one or two of the individual wipes to clean off a small area of adhesive. But like I said I've never done an entire barrel before just spots or tape wrapped around the barrel. Good luck.
