This really doesn't have anything to do with paintball mechanics, more of that cosmetic crap everyone loves....

My friend recently painted his Mr1 red Tiger camo http://i1046.photobucket.com/albums/b463/langdeyouhuo/RobsGun.jpg


It looks pretty sweet, but i don't want to copy the red off of him. I have a normal black Mr2, and i was hoping for some color suggestions for the tiger stripes.

Black and green would do well for camo, if you've seen BigBone's on SO you'll see what I mean. I also think just black and white would look cool

Ok, so just for a test, I painted my old scrap barrel. I used a tiger print from google, primed the barrell white, then painted over it sparkly blue. What do u think?

Well this morning i did the hopper (which im angry to say i kind of slacked off on), Im going to do the stock, and probably the main body of the gun (minus all of the electronic and moving parts

If you did a gravity then you can get another one for cheap. That'll look pretty nice once you finish. Just take your time. Those parts are harder to replace then the hopper lol.

OK, I finished my hopper and it doesn't look as bad as I thought it would, just click on the first link and it will take you to the page. (Sorry Hob, but in these pictures I covered up the vinyl)

This is a bit off topic...

While working on my gun, I got ticked because the shroud doesn't fit on account of my new barrel kit (J&J Edge all star pack) I decided to ad a custom-machined part. I was wondering if there was anywhere I could buy a rail-that fits the Mr2, the size escapes me-that I could just screw onto the part.

Can you be a little clearer? I don't understand what kind of part you're looking for. Would it attach to the top weaver rail or use the spot where the stock shroud screws into the valve plug?

looks damn good, just make sure you clearcoat it or something so it doesn't just scratch right off.

Sorry this took so long...


Im thinking of adding my own custom shroud to the front of the gun, I want to attach some rails to hold additional accessories, i was thinking a weaver rail might fit. However, all im finding are to be attached to a "handgaurd" i was wondering if there was anywhere that I could just get a 6-10" weaver rail.
