Removing the finish on a CZ.82

Well, so far I have tried gun blue and rust remover from Birchwood & Casey and it would not remove most of it, so then came the bronze brush, well that got most, but still some spots that I cant get with the brush....... also tried carb cleaner(both kinds), brake cleaner, electrical parts cleaner, 409.....

I'm wondering if over cleaner may help? also is it safe for the springs inside?

before I've reblued my guns, i've used gun oil and steel wool. I lightly buff in a circular motion. LIGHTLY Buff not to scratch what I didn't want damaged

Try a #2 pencil for small areas. Theres just enough abrasive material in the lead to remove small spots.

Paint stripper, fine wire wheel, some dremel wire wheels worked for me. Just don't use the coarse wire wheel. It'll scratch vs removing the nasty paint.

Nope, no reblueing of this one, I ordered 2 when I bought them from SOG, one hand-pick the other non..... hand-pick looks never issued, and this one which had some muzzle damage and a very worn finish. I wanna do it in chrome or nickle plated and hopefully find some pearl grips even have some made if possible

It's been years since I bought it - but I'd think any decent hardware store should stock it.

I believe it's made/distributed by Permatex (the Loctite folks) so maybe if the local hardware store doesn't have it, an auto parts store might.

Just on a side note - I'm not sure if it'll remove blued finish...
The wikipedia article here says the way it removes rust is actually similar to blued/parkerized finish.
But I have absolutely no experience using it for that - so if someone says they've done it - their experience should trump my google-fu...
