WE 1911 MEU paint strip?

Hello everyone, long time lurker. I have been looking to get into airsoft for quite a awhile now and I am likely going to buy a WE 1911 MEU Tan pistol.

My question to you smart chaps is whether or not this gun will rust if I strip the paint?

I love the design of it, but I want to use HEAVY paint/varnish remover on the tan parts, and then sand them to end up with a silver/metal polished effect.

I have heard that the WE guns are made of zinc? If anyone can provide any information on the likelihood of rust please let me know. OR if anyone has stripped a gun let me know.

Thanks a lot.
