Painting a gun

Recommended Posts

Right
I know all the rules and law on painting a gun, having read up on it.
My question is, what spray paint is best?

I've recently bought a sr-25. it has a pretty nifty faded tan paint job. i want to change it to similar Olive Drab paint job. So I'll have to restore it to black, then paint it OD.

Although Krylon is best, I have had good results from poundworld car bumper matt black paint on a plastic gun. And would you believe its only a pound a can? :)

My local Airsoft shop stocks Krylon at £8 a can, so I think I'll go with that :)
