    has anyone ever tried to remove camo paint from a blued surface without scratching up the blued metal too bad? i have an old winchester 120 12ga that id like to turn into a home defense gun or a beater gun to use for whatever (havent decided yet). any ideas?

    Just strip all the finish off it and re-blue it

    I'd bet some brake parts cleaner and some paper towels will do most of it for you.

    so why not just remove the camo paint then repaint it black if it's not even worth reblueing?
