I'm working on a refinish of my earlier refinish of a pistol kit. I browned the barrel and it came out nicely, but now I think I'd like to give a yarn wrap a try since I'm fancying it up a little. What do I need to do to remove browning???

well there are any number of ways depending on the finish
Naval jelly works great for removing most finishes to include bluing
With a brown though , we first must understand that a brown or rust black is actually a rust that has been controlled by oil .
As such most any good rust remover will remove it .
You can also when dealing with a barrel simply sand it off .
If the barrel is octagon , use 120-180 grit paper on a sanding block .
Using a block is important to keep the edges of the flats nice and sharp with clean edges
