    This is a recent purchase towards the collection, a m16 maker marked G62 it has no cracks or dents and I paid about 180$ for it, I'm happy with it! Maybe there is some original paint under the post war paint. Click image for larger version.

    From what I can see original M-16 might see what's under the black stuff. I would as it could be a decent shell who knows. timothy

    Is there a way to get the black off without damaging what's underneath?

    Acetone would likely do the trick.

    You have to see what kind of paint is on the lid, ie ,enamels, gloss, acrylics, or car paint, acetone will not work on certain types of paint,therefore you have to test a small area, preferably the inside skirt at the rear

    Dave is right, depends on the paint, but try acetone in a small spot somewhere indiscreet if you can.
