Welcome to the forum. If you trust yourself, you can do it yourself. Just use
painter's tape, spraypaint, and clearcoat to get the desired effect. Just make
sure that you take out all of the internals and cover any large holes from the
inside. I painted mine myself. Milling is like taking off the letters and stuff
like that. That cost me $15~$20.

What??

FYI on the boards down south here it is going to take way longer than 15 minutes for a solid answer. I have spent 15 minutes researching and typing a response several times in the past.

"Milling" typically consists of grinding/sanding/filing/cutting off of the rear site or the writing on the side of your gun. Its that simple.

Painting is easy and I highly recommend doing it yourself.

Yes do the painting yourself. Take off all the paint using steel wool, paint stripper, sandpaper etc. Also use primer.

If you use the right shades it will be tight.

Its ALL personal preference though.

go to the marker galary and find a good paintjob and try to make your own, most people are nice enough to say how they did it and the milling: you need a power tool that can cut metal
