I tried using my dremel wire-brush and polishing wheel... that was a pain in the ass... Took waaaay to long with that stupid tiny little wheel.

So I tried steel wool... took forever to get through the paint. So I got paint stripper. Worked so well! Took that paint right off, just kinda hard to use on the curves. So.... i got a large drill wire-brush attachment. Through the paint in under 30 seconds. Best thing to use.

One side of my receiver had a thick layer of paint, like it is in the outside... The other half just had overspray. The paint stripper helped on both very well. Only thing was- a bit seeped through the cocking slot and took some of the inside edges of it. Nothing really, just watch for that.
