Yeah use a little rubbing alcohol 91% is best on a rag. But don't get it on your gun cause it can fade some finishes.

Just washing with soap and water, rubbing the glue off with your hands, put some work into it and it should come off. I've removed it from Tacamo hoppers and Empire Reloaders this way.

We use vl2000 covers on our hoppers to prevent this. We learned the hard way before. You have to make a cut or 2 in it but they work great.

If its got a harsh solvent in it, it may. Steer clear of acetone or acetone derivatives, it will definitely weaken the plastic. Doesn't look like Goo Gone will, but Goof Off may. Try the rubbing alcohol.

I would use "Goo Gone" I've taken sticker crap off my hopper before. Seriously, it works...and doesn't mess with the paint/finish.

Goo 'GONE' would most likely be alright... Goof 'OFF' however, will "eat" most plastics as someone mentioned above.

I agree it was difficult to tell who was blue, and who was green by the tape
