I was just wondering... what is the best and fastest way to remove the paint from your paintball gun before repainting it?

We talking a Tippmann? I found using a razor blade was the fast method that I found, if you can get it under a little bit of the paint a lot will just kind of slide off. Then you use sand paper and a wire brush for the smaller details. not sure how that would work on anything other than a 98.

I used aircraft remover I bought in a spray can from Wal-Mart. The can was around $8 or so and it worked pretty good. I had to apply it twice to get all of the paint off of an X7.

Yes, that spray on paint remover is honestly the best, easiest and fastest way to remove the powdercoat paint from Tippmann parts.

Be sure to read the labels carefully so you find the spray that is safe to use on aluminum otherwise you may eat into the surface of the parts.
Following the label spray, let the solution sit rinse and repeat if needed.

If done properly you will have a nice smooth clean piece of aluminum ready for your own look to be added.

Now if you are trying to pull the color off an anodized part like the barrel you will need to use a chemical etching agent that will remove a layer of metal taking the anno with it.
The easiest chemical to get is sodium hydroxide. If that is the case then you need a whole different set of instructions that I can get into later at your request.
