I've got some British L1A1 parts that I want to refinish (paint) and was wondering what kind of paint stripper will work on the original British Suncorite finish. I would prefer not to have to blast the parts so a paint stripper would be the preferred method.
Thanks
Randy

If my experience is any indication, you'll need a mixture of liquid uranium and molten lava. :tongue:

Find a Suncorite coated mag and experiment, just a thought.

If EZStrip won't work, try spray brake cleaner(it stripped a part for me that I didn't intend to strip). If it won't, then blasting is all that's left. Ron

Brake cleaner won't touch it. I haven't had a chance to try any typer of paint stripper yet.

I'm not sure how informative they'll be, but this is the link into the page that asks technical support questions about paints & sealers for Henkel. They made the stuff, maybe they know of a way to remove it as well?

Castrol super purple, full strength, will loosen the black paint on Imbel mags enough to remove the coating with a toothbrush. Might work on stoving. Must use gloves when working with CSP.
