I will be buying a friends Mini-14. Got a great deal, only draw back is he has cammoed the whole thing barrel and all with krylon. Interestingly enough it has held up to the heat. I want to get rid of the camo at least on the metal part. Recommendations? The barrel was blued not stainless.

If your friend sanded or otherwise scuffed up the bluing prior to paint you can wire brush it off and have it reblued. If he didn't do any surface prep and just painted it you may get it off easily with acetone and soft rags. Use cotton swaps and/or plastic picks to clean out the engraving and tight areas. After that use a light oil and 0000 steel wool to lightly scrub the metal to remove anything else, degrease it and then oil it as you normally would. Since you live in the PNW try to do it all in one day to avoid any rusting issues.
