That looks good.

Mind posting exactly what you used and the process?

Thanks

You'll need wet/dry sand paper starting with 600 grit to remove all of the anodized finish. Then go with 1000,1500, 2000, 2500 and finally any type of aluminum polish. I used Mothers for the final step. Be prepared for some sore fingers though.

Thanks 486, good job.

I hope it works well for you. I wouldn't mind giving it a go. But I wonder???

I work with a lot of (non-gun related) anodized parts at work. I know ano comes in different thicknesses based on class. The stuff I most commonly see at work is CLASS II. I think it penetrates the aluminum approximately .001 and adds thickness of about .0005 (half of .001). IF this is true of a 10/22 receiver, removing the ano coating from inside, you would open up the dimension between the surfaces .001 (.0005 on one receiver wall + .0005 on opposite receiver wall).

Would the theoretical +.001 slop be a problem between he walls of the receiver? I don't know.

Please let us know the outcome of your removal of the anodizing.

Wow, that's nice! I just started polishing the outside of mine. I didn't know they anodized the receivers, I thought they were all painted. I used Aircraft Paint Remover from Auto Zone/Performance Auto and it took the finish right off, inside and out. I wasn't planning to do the inside but that looks so good in thinking it over. I'm hoping I can find a good deal on a stock stainless target barrel for a good deal too and polish it out a little.
Are you going to try to work it all the way to the corners?
