When spraying your rifle, for best results attach any attachments you desire to be sprayed whilst using the gun so it is all co-ordinated.

If you have a two tone rifle, we do not suggest or condone the spraying of a two tone as this is technically breaking the law by ‘manufacturing’ a RIF (realistic imitation firearm). Please check with the retailer you purchased the rifle from as spraying it may invalidate the warranty.


1) Make sure your airsoft gun or surface is clear of dirt, dust and any other substance that may interfere with a clean coat.

2) Cover up any gaps or holes that make affect your rifle if paint is sprayed in, i.e hop unit, trigger, barrel 

3) After choosing your camo or design pattern, apply your first coat of your base colour making sure you spray about One Foot (30cm) away from the surface you are spraying and be weary of any blockages in the nozzle of the can and it may cause spluttering (do not look directly into the nozzle with your finger on the button). Apply a light dusting covering the whole surface.

4) Allow 10-20 minutes for the paint to dry and store it in a warm environment to heat treat the paint and avoid the paint from cracking in the cold.

5) After the first coat is touch dry, use the stencil or other means of making the pattern and then select the next colour and repeat step three. continue heat treating the paint and waiting 10-20 minutes before each coat until you have your desired pattern.

6) After you have finished it helps to apply a couple of coats of Krylon Lacquer to add a protective layer over paint and avoid chips and scratches.
