Alright, So I went paintballing yesterday at a local field. Where I live is pretty much in a desert and scenario is a big deal here. I have a Spyder Pilot. It performs extremely Well. The thing is, is that I love this gun but it isnt a scenario marker. So I looked into this issue more and I saw some pictures of Pilots that have been.... Spray painted maybe? So I was wondering..What kind of paint should I use to paint is all black? Is it a matte or mettalic..I dont know I need some help. Thx a lot.:D

matte. i painted my gun, but it tends to chip/flake off in some places. my friend suggested engine paint. you can also use DuraCoat, the same stuff they use on real guns.

Totally strip down the gun to the body & frame. Sand down all areas to be painted. Prime and paint in several light coats. Let dry. Apply a clear coat. Put your upper rack in your oven at the highest slot and remove the lower rack. Hang the body from the rack with a tie wire. Bake at 175* for at least an hour. Cool and reassemble.
