Brake cleaner will remove most spray can finishes. They also make a spray can of aircraft stripper. problem with it if you dont get it off it will attack your new paint. Water and soap is about all that will deactivate it.

be careful with it. It will "float in the air" and attack things you dont want including you . :sad:

Depends on which AK you are stripping. Some require really BAD Ass solvents - others (ex. Original Tantal) can be stripped to base phosphate with simple denatured alcohol :)

What country is your rifle from? And is the finish original?

Trying to go in order...

Hungarian - expect trouble :) Hungarian's and Maadi's, while often ugly, have some BAD Ass paint on 'em. Aircraft Stripper or blast... they are THAT tough.

Bulgarian's - two differnt kinds of paint. "Old" Bulgy needs ZSTRIP, or other Hardware Store paint stripper. "New" Bulgy (like on an SLR106) will strip fast with simple Acetone.

krylon - or almost any other rattle can finish. Acetone generally eats this stuff faster than Paris Hilton can drop her drawers :)
