Is there any kind of paint remover for plastic that wont mess the plastic up?

The only thing that is some what mild is Citrus strip. But I'm not to sure if even that will eat through plastic. Most paint strippers are pretty strong. I usually use soap and warm water with a green scrub pad. If its oil paint just use some paint thinner.Paint thinner won't eat through plastic.If its latex or water based paint then you can just soak it in warm water, and it will eventually begin to peel. I don't consider myself a veteran at paintball, but I was a painter for 8 years. Hope this helps.
