    Other than a complete disassembly and some free time what is the recommended solvent for undoing a rattle can paint job from a chassis long gun?[​IMG]

    You might try acetone. Aircraft stripper from NAPA will do it but will probably strip down to bare metal.

    Start with lacquer thinner it won't eat plastic. Acetone is some harsh stuff.
