    What is the best method of removing the Right Stuff from the top of my slide? Any ideas without damaging the bluing that is left? Going to switch to the NiteSiters. Tom

    Yes, That's it. I used it to adhere the shotgun site to the top of the slide, per some posts in this site earlier this year. Tom

    There are some permatex remover chemicals out there, don't know what effect it would have on the bluing. You could pick up some B/C blue and test it on a piece of scrap steel by bluing the steel then applying the chemical.

    Somehow I doubt heat would work so it seems you're left with a chemical remover or a flat edge to pry/scrape.

    The good news is it's not that hard to re-blue steel.

    Sounds like you might have a good excuse to send your slide off to have Jack apply a lovely nickel finish. Just a thought.

    use a quality gasket remover, it should not harm the bluing unless its left on there for extended periods (2+hours). You may still need to use a box cutter type blade to scrape the remaining film off of the slide.

    We use that stuff at work quite abit and I think your best bet is to use a razor blade and peel/cut it off. HTH.
