When I bought my stainless Ruger 10/22 I expected to have to refinish the receiver at some point. The barrel is stainless, but the finish on the aluminum receiver is just silver paint of some sort.
After cleaning my stainless Ruger 10/22 with Breakfree Powder Blast (which is more or less brake cleaner) I noticed that some of the paint started peeling.
I’ll eventually wind up stripping off the paint and refinishing it. Any suggestions for a new finish?
