I promised a picture when I was done.
I used every stripper known to man and the black on the butt plate and barrel band wouldn't budge. By the way, Jasco stripper will melt nitril gloves, and give chemical burns.....lol
I think the black is powder coat.
She still looks stock, and I didn't do anything too amazing, but it was my first stock refinish.
It is definately worth your time to do, I really don't think you can mess it up.
