Strip that brass... Draino/Brake Fluid???
So I have a nice old sheridan that I want to clean up. I have sanded most of the exterior down to a nice somewhat dull brass finish, but i want to get ALL of this black crap off.
I read somewhere if you soak the body in draino or brake fluid it will remove it.
Has anyone else got a better way of doing this? I want the black crud out from the inside of the gun as well......
Any help is great!

Red=mod, but not Schmitti
I would not use brake fluid ever for stripping material that you want to refinish. It gets into the metal and becomes very difficult to remove so you can refinish

Citrastrip which is a biodegradable paintstripper, works well and is available at any hardware store.

Klean-strip works really well. You just have to make it a quick job because it melts your gloves too.

The stripper in a can ( we used Kean Strip) is VERY dangerous. There is now a chunk of the bathroom sink missing.
Someone *points* asked me to be nice and stripper an old VM body while they were at work. So i did. I'm outside spraying it down, when the wind out of NOWHERE, kicks up REALLY fast, blowing a fine mist of Stripper UP the leg of my shorts
*insert me running screaming into the kitchen and spraying down things with the hose from the kitchen sink*
So I go back outside, and am just about to finsih when along comes another STRONG breeze...this time I move... and it blows stripper onto my arm
*goes RUNNING into the bathroom with the stripper coated VM body still in hand*
after thoroughly cleaning my arm, I move the VM body....and the little bit of run off from the Stripper has eaten three LARGE chunks out of the porcelain sink.
Yeah, bye bye security deposit

Honestly, on topic it's funny enough. He survived unscaithed for the most part, unlike the sink.
The correct question is, "Why don't I need another gun?"
How strange to see a lagomorph of such bravery.

one person mentioned it and i fogot to in your pm(i'm extremly tired latly. work hours have changed and it's taking time to get used to them). brake fluid and any stripped will be hard to clean for coating. it impregnates the metal and cause some weired efects. just sand it off. or have it bead blasted off. i can even do it if need be.
