Well as it usually goes...was looking for something else.
Stumbled into a 1894 in 44 mag., 79 model.

Barring 2 issues gun looks as new.

1-Stock was clearcoated when new, after 3 hours buffing with
rubbing compound to tone down the shine it turned out beautiful.
2-Scope was installed when new and locktite applied very generously to
the point it seeped under the base. Other than that the metal is 100%. Doesn't even seem to be mared
where the base was probably due to the locktite.

Any one have any suggestions for removing the locktite from the matt finish on top of the reciever?
Will install a Skinner later so no big issue, but would like to remove it.

JC...im busy.

Depending upon the size of the area try some Kroil penetrating oil.

Also if you have a hot air source, like a plastic welder or hot air gun, that should do it.

Thanks.
Matted finish is probably blued over bead blast, sure someone knows for sure.
Given the texture I figure this stuff may "wipe in" on the texture and become shiny.
I'll try the acetone between the back mount holes where it will not be seen.

Thanks again.

Thanks Tom.
If the acetone doesn't cut it, I'll try the heat
and maybe spray it while its hot, maybe the oil will keep it from bonding back
while wiping it off.

Thanks again.

James
