Hey it's been some time since been on the website. But I am looking for some help, years before camo shotguns my father hunted a lot of ducks on Lake St. Clair( Mitchells Bay ). Dad was a hell of a good shot, so one day he bought a new Browning BPS trap grade and painted it green ( so the ducks couldn't see it ). would anyone happen to know the best way to remove it. yes it's oil base paint.

Getting the paint off without wrecking the wood finish ,---I don't think so. If you are going to refinish the stock and fore arm , just strip it with paint stripper. Should brake up easily .It would take forever to  soak it with lacquer thinner. I can,t say a word about the blueing. Certain chemicals bother that  stuff.
Try a piece that would not show and see.

If you mess up the bluing, here's a method to reblue the gun almost as good as a hot blue job.

It uses a browning and a blueing solution and you can heat the metal with a propane torch rather than have a hot bath.

take the gun apart do the wood as Jon suggests, then carefully do the metal, do not use anything metal to remove the paint, use soft plastic.

Since your Dad painted the gun and gave it to you, why do you want to remove the paint ? I would keep it just the way your Dad made it and keep it as a family heirloom. Every time you look at it or shoot it, it will bring bak the memories of your Dad. Just my thought's on it.

Thanks to all, I'm going to keep the gun just as it is. It will bring back great times my Dad and I spent shooting ducks on the bay. In fact we are heading there on Thanksgiving to do some hunting.( he turned 83 this month ). Just got back from deer hunting in Michigan and go figure he killed the biggest deer in camp.

Thanks Mitch

also browning has one of the hardest finishes put on a gun. it may not remove easily. you may end up with a lot of sanding to do then the stock may be undersized. if you really want to do a change, buy new stockblanks.
