anyone have any ideas how to remove the coating. I have read a lot of post where the answer is to scuff and repaint. not sure i want to do that. i want to remove all together.

Aircraft stripper will remove the hydrgraphics along with the base coat and if the dipping was done properly the gun would have been sandblasted which would require you to refinish it at that point since it will be bare metal.

I've seen acetone remove some on a test area once upon a time ago.

just rubbing the acetone or by soaking?

We put some on a clean shop rag and wiped it off; not immediately, I suppose if the dipped piece was saturated more, it may have gone quicker.

Media blast with 120 grit aluminum oxide and Cerakote that sucker.

i dont want to blast it. the stock and forearm and grip have been coated. i would like to preserve all of that.

Just soaked the grip in acetone for a few mins. Yes acetone works. the film peeled off without hurting the plastic of the grip.

thanks to all who replied.

if u dont have enough acetone to submerg ur part completely in, you can seal it up in a container with the acetone and the vapors will do the job too.
