The best way to strip it off is to blast it and refinish it. We do both hydrographics and cerekote. For you gentlemen looking to get stuff dipped in this pattern we would love to do it! as far as stripping and returning it to a black finish we also would be glad to do it ! This gun looks great although we would polish or refinish the hammer trigger and barrel to really make her pop excellent dip work looks great !
