Sandblasting:
You can have parts blasted for VERY cheap, a paintball marker being as small as it is could get blasted with aluminum oxide for about $10.

Painting: I prefer powder coat, you will never have a more durable coating to your marker, if you have a friend, or can wait til you have some extra cash them i would highly recommend this. If you can gain access to one its not hard to do at all.
The easy way:
You can easily paint your marker just by using some scotch bright to scuff the clear coating off of the marker after it is striped down. clean it very well. And rattle can will do, just pick you color. I suggest doing a etching automotive primer. The actual coat is preference really.... you can use a 99 cent can of paint, or get a translucent valve cover can for 9-14 dollars that can be baked. This will make it a lot more rugged.
Scotch bright is about 3-4 dollars and etching primer is about the same.

I'm new to the forums... and paintball, but I had a quick question. I ran across a Camo Airbrush Kit at my local hobby lobby. Do you have any feedback on wether that would be a good or bad choice in using versus say spray paint?
 
Also... If a plotter is available, would you recommend that to cut the stencils?

It does help.  I actually have the same setup I believe.  If you had the black version I would say just strip the marker and prime it before painting.  Not sure what to tell you on the silver one.  (Except I like the way the silver body offsets the black AK kit so mine is not getting painted.)

I would definitely not expose the plastic AK parts to any heat.  (Shouldn't be necessary, assuming it is the Tippmann kit I think any decent paint should stick just fine.)

  • By "the shell is smooth" do you mean the paint on it is smooth or the metal under the paint after it was removed?
  • Which AK kit?
    • If it has wood or plastic parts I would guess that it's best not to expose those parts to heat.

That marker looks oddly familiar.  Smile    He should post the pic up in the Marker Gallery as well.

mrspeeddemon, That gun is awesome! The only thing that I'd change would be the grey shroud, maybe flat black, but hey, that's my opinion, we all have our own styles man. NICE GUN!

I LOVE THIS THREAD, THE GUNS, THE PAINT-JOBS!!!!!!
It's freakin' awesome. I have a Tippmann 98C Platinum and got a Realtree camo kit for it, but as it turns out, it was for a regular 98C....WELL CRAP! Time for new ideas!
So, now I have plenty of ideas on what to do to camo it up. BTW, while I'm thinking about it, does anybody on here have some gun ghillie techniques??
I was also wanting to tell you guys that are planning on using spray paint, At Wal-mart, there is actually like four different camo colors (SUPER-FLAT) made by Rust-O-Leum and it's a fairly decent price for them.

sweet thread just checking it out and now thinking bout painting my x7 so, i just scanned through the thread and what i get is take the gun apart, sand it down to roughen the finish, apply the stencils and paint i'll probably use spray paint unless i can find a decent airbrush and borrow buddies compressor, then let sit,
how long should it sit before adding the next layer of paint cause i dont want my gun to be all sticky in the end is there a special kind of paint that should be used, ive taken it apart before so i have no problem doing that since it seems some people are to scared to take theirs apart and they wont be able to put it back together,
