reblue the gun, its only 60-80$. If you need to know where, there's a guy on the south side of lansing that does tons of guns for that price, and A+ job.

Maybe a heat gun? Like one used for stripping paint. Might get hot enough to soften the stuff up but not damage stuff like a propane torch would.
