For anyone dealing with hard-to-remove spray paint, here's how I got mine off.

Background- I mostly use Rustoleum for my rattle can jobs, however on this particular firearm I used Aervoe. This stuff is freaking cerakote in a can. It dried real hard and smooth, almost looked and felt like a cerakote. Rustoleum usually comes off with brake clean. Brake clean, paint thinner, goof off, acetone WOULDNT take this stuff off!

I sold the upper that was on this lower so I wanted to strip the paint and put it on a different m4 style upper.

First, I took off all plastics and removed basically everything other than my bolt catch and trigger guard.

I did a quick brake clean job on it to get rid of all oil.

I dried the gun completely, threw on some chemical resistant glovss, and sprayed a heavy layer of Citristrip on it. I coated it with enough to give it an orange hue.


I let it sit for 1 hour. I then brought it to my sink and used scalding hot water and the back side of a sponge to get most of the work done. It removed maybe 30% of the paint. Like I said, Aervoe is TOUGH.

Spray #2, sit for one hour, and back to sink with hot water. This got most of the surface paint off. I still had a lot caked in the grooves.

Spray #3, sat for one hour. It looked like this.

I hit it again in the sink this time with a medium-hard bristle tooth brush. That did the trick.

I dried ALL water out of the gun by using a mixture of cleaning towels and some keyboard duster spray. This will leave the firearm with a bit of a "gray" look because of all the chemicals on the anodizing.

I sprayed the lower again with brake clean to make sure all chemicals are off the lower, dried it, and gave it a really good spray of clp and let it soak for about 30 mins.

I wiped all of it down, reinstalled some different furniture, and TADA. Good as new. See comment below for before and after photos. I ran out of space! 20240130_111440.jpg
 
Before - (sorry no pix of the lower by itself)

This method will also work on plastic, I just didn't do it because I traded the sopmod stock to a buddy and the pistol grip went into the spare bin.
 
If I ever need to show the side of an AR-type rifle with the serial number visible, I edit that area out of the image before posting it up on the interwebz. I'd not doubt there are gun-haters out there who know how to remove the obliteration (red in your case) and then see the serial number of the rifle. Then I guess they'd contact Handgun Control and then begins the ruination of your life. I sometimes capture a piece of the magazine well and paste it over the edited-out serial number so it looks like the lower has no serial number. That's fun for me because we all know gun-haters lose control of their bowels when they see a firearm with no serial number on it. We need to strike back any way we can, huh?

Just put a piece of black electrical tape over the serial number - no one can remove that.

Well, they do, y'know. When a gun-hater sees an AR-type rifle in the hands of a responsible, law-abiding, adult American citizen... or a "ghost gun" with no serial number on it... they soil themselves. They "mess their panties." Most usually in public places, too.

I'm seeing now on quora.com that the idiot libtards are asking why gun-owners are such cowards to own/use a gun that can inflict damage to a perp from a distance rather than using an "up-close and personal" weapon like a knife or other hand-held weapon. My answer to that idiocy was that we aren't cowards at all. We're sovereign citizens ready to defend our lives and other things dear to us-- like our families. I retorted that he was the coward for being afraid of an inanimate object that does nothing until a human takes it to hand, and then only after the human mind deigns to perpetrate a violent and illegal act with that inanimate object. The degrees of stupidity the gun-haters can generate and then display never ceases to amaze me. It's as if they make the effort to have the next stupid thing they say be even more stupid than the last drooling of stupidity to fall from their bullschiffer's lips...
 
That image with three rifles in it: They look to be SBRs. Are they? That's a lot of waitin' time for ATF to get off its assets and get the Form 4 approved. I applaud your tenacity if they are indeed SBRs...
