AMD 65 Paint Removal?
Jasco Paint and Epoxy remover took the paint off in about 30 seconds flat.
The reciever is now bare metal, but the rest of the gun still has a black finish.
Everything but the reciever had another type of finish under the paint that didnt come off.
What is the best way to strip the paint off of a TGI AMD65?
There are some deep scratches and other areas where the paint is flaking off, so this is the perfect candidate for a DIY (gunkote, durabake, duracoat, alumahyde, etc) project.
I can't really help you with this, but I am wondering if you've tried Hoppe's #9 because I want to know if it has any effect on the paint like it does on Arsenal AKs.
What you took off was the spray can finish put on here in the US by the 'assemblers' of your AMD. What you didn't remove is the baked-on original FEG finish. The quickest way might be a propane torch and a wire brush. Depending on what texture you want the finished gun to have, it may be worth paying someone to bead-blast the coating off.
Hoppe's 9 doesn't take off he spray paint finish on the TGI's - I tried.
