Removal Of Aluminum Black From SS

Back when I first received my (supposed) new Ultra CDP it came complete with an "Idiot Scratch" AND a scratch under the thumb safety. I took care of the scratches with Birchwood Casey Aluminum Black.
However I got some of the Birchwood on the stainless Steel portion of the barrel and could not get it off with any solvent. I decided that it was so small that I could live with it. However , Yesterday I took some Ultra-Fine sand paper and gave it a shot on the least conspicuous stain. It worked so well, without leaving a mark on the stainless, that I proceeded to remove the other 3 stains. Now El Guno looks brand new.

I thought it was spelled with an "a" Guano.

Remember, I live in SoCal. No further explanation should be required.
