Sandblast it with fine sand(Sugar sand) and this will remove the paint and prepair the barrel for repainting.
A sand blast finish gives the paint a good anchor pattern and makes it much harder to chip or
flake off. Also the sand is non reactive and some chemicals are, so I don't like using them.
All it takes is a hand held sand blast gun and a bag of sugar sand. (About $30.00) and some
tape to mask off any areas that you want to keep the sand off/out. I use an ear plug in the
crown it protect it while blasting it.
When applying Alumahyde spray Very light coates until you get good coverage, (This is a
place that More is not better) Because the thicker it is the easier it is to chip.
Hope this helps
