found this on a ilsim site and thought I'd pass it along....poster's name was "Ring"



DO NOT BUY WRECK YELLOW FILL PAINT!!!!! WARNING!
this does not effect the older pink fill wreck

the 1st time i ran into this was at the splatterpark 1000 man game, i noticed that it didn't want to clean off my lens with just water like any other paint.

its was almost like grease on the lens.

then i noticed that starting to MELT and DISOLVE the paint on my gun!

even after i got home i washed it all off with HOT soapy water, and the paint was still soft on the gun.

that was more then a month ago, and the paint on the gun is still soft and tacky

i thought that was a fluke, till yesterday at a local game where a few players were also using the same yellow fill wreck bought at a local shop "who i will be contacting"
i had a mask that has krylon fusion paint on it.. this stuff bonds with plastic, it does not come off once its on..
well or in this case, get some wreck on it, and its melting off with in hours...

if its doing this to enamel paints, what do you think its doing to your lens or anti fog coatings in the lens?
