Brake fluid will remove most paints.. better then more paint removers on the market

Another thing to watch out for with this type of finish, stay away from miltech.
Have not tried it with this exact type of spray paint, but did have a issue with Krylon Fusion being melted by miltech.

Allman, did you let it sit on there? Or did you just rub it on? Let it sit overnight and it should come right off, unless its powder coated.

Here is a picture of a Norinco 870 shotgun I just refinished with the Dupli-Color 1200 degree HH ceramic paint. It looks like it came for the factory that way. You can't see the receiver very well but the finish you see on the barrel is how the whole gun looks. A rough parkerized look.

Allman Thanks for the brake fluid results. This stuff is tough as nails.

Did both. I've also tried lacquer thinner which does remove it. Nothing I would normally use in cleaning guns seems to affect it, but I don't have every potential gun cleaner in my shop. I'm interested in knowing if gun scrubber, which I think may be the same as brake cleaner, affects it as I use that occasionally but don't have any on hand.

Just found out gf's oven has been massively overshooting temp settings... just as well I didn't try this yet.

I guess this explains the burnt cookies, though...

Then I went to Wal Mart and got a little oven thermometer that will sit right on the rack and let me look in the window and keep track of the temperature, which I keep an eye on and regulate by turning the temp control or cracking the door a little.

You guys are all high end and stuff...I just used clothing hanger to hang my shotgun parts from the top rack....worked great just make sure to degrease the wires or cloathing hangers also.

No pics yet o my shotgun as my camera has been missing for 2 months...sucks...But it was super easy to spray and it came out looking really nice. It seems to be holding up very very well...I might just refinish my ak with this stuff

Wow! This is so cool. I love this type of finish. Does this stuff have any lubricating qualities like gun-kote. If not, would this be a problem on the frame rails of a 1911?

If you want to get fancy, Walmart has a digital oven temp gauge with a probe that goes into the oven (or turkey or whatever else might be inside it) for about 15 bucks. Has an alarm timer and makes it easy to regulate the correct temp and time for baking cures.

Most ovens aren't very accurate as far as the real temp and the temp on the dial, and a lot aren't even consistent from one use to another.

I used a dial thermometer. When oven is set for 350, needle pointed to 650+ (not numbered that high.)

And we wondered why the frozen pizzas were so inconsistent....

I used this to refinish my Springfield Loaded 1911. It came out just as nice as my Glock 21. After about 400 draws from my Kydex Holsters, I've gotten a small amount of wear in the usual areas, but it seems to get to a certain point and stop. It's only shown a small amount of wear on the slide rails. Nothing that you won't see with any other finish. I did my 1911 frame in Gray and decided I didn't like it. I let it soak in Brake Fluid overnight and scrubbed it with a brass brush. It took it off but it was some work. I then used Brake Cleaner Spray, which worked much better. I then redid the entire pistol in Black. As with my Glock 21 it came out just as good as the Durabake I used before. For 6bucks a can, and as easy as it is to do, if I have to refinish a firearm every 2 years, I wouldn't have a huge problem with that.

Yeah I have a working AR7 .22 rifle that I redid with it as well a few days ago.. came out SUPER nice and the cool part was it was cake to break down Baked it a bit too long but it still came out nice and black and it wont scratch like when you just use normal paint (Which was what was on the gun before this stuff)

Looks like its really handy.

Just thought I'd share mine. Quick question, there is a spot where the paint did not flatten (its kind of rough n pourous), do I need to remove all the paint on the whole frame and then reapply and bake? If so, what do I use? Break cleaner works?

If you just have a rough spot in the paint you can use some steel wool on it very lightly and that will smooth it out. You don't have to repaint the whole thing. You can just spray some on a small area and bake it again if you have to do some touch up.

It looks good. It looks like you did an excellent job. Which sliver color did you use.

Thanks, used black and aluminum (were the only colors the store had). Took a lot longer than expected to put it back together again.

Saw some dupli-color with ceremic something or other added to help heat dispersition. Thought it'd be good to use on my mini 14 barrel seeing as it has a heating problem.

Any thoughts how to bake on if you don't have an oven to use? Thinking about using a heat gun maybe.

You could set up an "oven" of sorts. Use a large metal pipe, or metal-lined box, open at both ends. object goes in, heat gun blows hot air into the box, and be careful to monitor temperature.
