Hi all - I have a Romanian SAR-1 that has what appears to be paint that was sprayed on the rear of the bolt carrier. The front of the gas piston is clean metal, but the rear appears to be painted black.

Question: is this paint, and if so can it be removed to make the entire rod clean metal?

TIA,

- Snacko

Snacko,

I think that it must be blueing because I used Hoppe's Blue and Rust remover and it came right off.

Now I have a pewter colored bolt carrier.

You can polish it further if you want a really shiny finish.
