Making a custom double barrel shotgun – Part 2

 

So last time I got the wood ready, so now according to my plan I will have to remove all the paint from metal parts.

 

First I disassembled the shotgun down to the smallest screw.

(here are some pictures I took during the disassembly)

To remove the paint I used a very strong paint solvent, it did not remove all the paint, but it saved me a lot of scrubbing time.

Paint on the barrel was more resistant to my solvent than any of the other parts. I don’t know why to be honest – it looked like everything was coated with the same paint.

But no matter, after a second dip in the solvent and some scrubbing I got most of it off.

As I had most of the paint off, I proceeded to the next point and that was “Remove the ugly “made in taiwan” and other markings”. Unfortunately the markings were quite deep so I had to use something bigger than just a metal file. Good thing I had a milling machine at hand 😀

After milling:
