    If it's hard like epoxy, I would heat it up a little with a heatgun or hair dryer to get it soft and try wiping it off with lacquer thinner or acetone.

    Been down this road a couple times. If acetone won't work, and it probably won't if it's Loctite. I do what my gunsmith does in these situations....grab the propane torch. It won't harm the finish as long as you are smart about what you're doing.

    If the other remedies fail try MEK (Methyl Ethyl Ketone) Just keep tt away from your wood and any areas that are lubricated as it will removed finish and lubricants. .

    Well acetone worked pretty good. I got 99% of it off. I may grab the heat gun out of the shop sometime this week and have another go at it. Right now what is left is like a residue. When I wipe the top with acetone and it dries, you don't see hardly anything. However once I wipe it down with a light oil to keep it from rusting the spots show up like it is embedded into the metal of the receiver. I'll get it yet as I seem to be on the right path. Thanks again everyone!
