It's up to you if you want to sand it first or not.. helps if you do but the important part is wipe it down with alcohol and finish it with some krylon flat clear coats.. I did 4 layers on mine and then bake it in the oven at 350 degree for 5 min and let it sit over night.. some do it at 170 for 2 hours.

However if you can't oven it then use a good space heater and let it sit in front of it over night and give it some time to cool down. Space heater work really good for plastic parts.( Dont oven plastic)

If you don't clear coat and heat treat it the paint will get all sticky and nasty with sweaty hands.

This will help it  bond and prevent it from coming off with sweaty hand and oil from the paintball. At least it last longer depend on condition. I did it to mine and so far not one single chip. I did sand most of it but some part I didn't .Both are holding up good.
