you are allowed to. the site won't mind and once you are there a police raid (as if that would happen anyway. I can't imagine the site owners would not inform police of it) would not go for someone who has a green gun.

 

What I do is Tape my guns at home, to make sure I have enough tape, then remove it untill you are at a skirmish.

 

EDIT: after reading that, I think the easiest thing to say is YES you CAN do it, just be sensible about it and don't use black tape.

I guess its because that would be making it realistic which is against the law.

Perhaps rather than taping it you could use a gun wrap or scrim netting. Would be easier to put on and take off at the site and would probably look better.

 

Personally i think camo tape looks terrible.

apparently theres nothing in the law that says you cant just spray the gun black/rif colours. The whole 2 tone thing is apparently somthing manufactures and sellers did to cover their backs from the vcra so, yeah just spray it real colours i guess.

when it come to what paint to use, krylons pretty good stuff, but youll need to use a scratch pad on the part you want to spray 1st, so the paint doesnt just rub off :)

I dunno what you have been reading but the is a majour NO NO

 

Changeing the colour of a 2 tone to make it look more reolistic is seen as manufacturing a RiF which is illegal unless you have a defence

 

And "the wohle 2 tone thing" is so that it dosnt look realistic so a cop with a real steel MP5 dosnt think you are a threat and shoot you

 

If you have been doing this i would recomend you get rid of them or get a defence sharpish

 

Thanks
