Hey guys me again. Got a question about painting the vs1. Do you think you could sand of the anno'd paint and powder coat the gun? Lemme know whatcha think!

Power coating would work I believe, but I think a professional anno would be better. Try www.125customs.com

I went on PBnation and it said that powder coating works nice, but it said not to sand of the anno'd paint because it could cause the powder coat to bubble in the future.

yeah just do the anno. your less likely to have FAIL written all over your gun.;)

Throw it in the oven for a coulpe of hours after taking out all melt able parts and internals so its just the outer gun. depending the color you gun is will mater what color it will turn.

don;t need to put in an oven and yes i know to take out all internals and what not, my dad's work has a powder coat shop and the big oven they have it will take like 2 min. maybe

NO!! If you put it in the oven the way it is the color will change.

wtf are you talking about

What Dahlen is talking about is baking your marker to change the color. A blue Vs1 baked might turn out a sort of lighter terd blue then original. A black one may end up kind of gray or brown. I have never been all that fond of baking a marker. You could have it reannodized by a professional that way it could be rare without killing the value of it.

Dahlen, I hate to be an ass to a new guy, but that's just plain retarded. You're going to stick an aluminum tube, SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED to withstand the immense force of 850psi as well as temperature change, and destroy it's temperament? I'm NEVER going to be near YOU with any sort of marker if you keep that shennanigans up! I'm not going to be the one going off to the hospital with metal shrapnel torn through me!

Just get the body re-anodized it would be like $20-30

I have a VS2 body that needs re-anno'd, but I can't seem to find a good price estimate. Or even a place where I could get it done...
