Could you use like car wax to shine up your gun?

It wouldn't do any good, there's no paint to shine, which is basically how car wax works. Plus, the wax would leave a residue & build up, which could be very bad. Just use a plain microfiber cloth. I use the same type of cloth that I use on my sunglasses.

By the time you got the parts to make your own, you'd have spent more than by just buying one.

Actually, you CAN use car wax on your guns. I used to do it all the time when I was playing tourney ball. I also waxed my loader. Gives them both a VERY slick surface. It also makes it shiny, but paint comes off it pretty well after you get shot. And no, there was no sticky residue. Especially if you put it on correctly - with a little water, then buff it off.











No, I didn't use it to cheat - just for cleaning up!

Not that this has anything to do with waxing your marker, but I heard that using rain x on the inside of your barrel helps clear barrel breaks easier, anybody able to confirm or deny???

I have also heard about the rain-x in the barrel trick, however I have never had any issues shooting through paint. Plus if you break enough paint that warrants a squeegee then a pull through will clean it up nice.

I've also used the Rain X - no noticeable difference to me. At least not that I could tell.
