its not the best thing to do.
how much is he selling it for?
The best way to get anything a different color is to annodize(sp?) it. but that can get kinda expensive
Well, if you dont want to get it anno'ed you CAN spraypaint it. Now, if you take that option (which I have done) here are some tips:
I like to use special anti-rust coat paint, it works well.
CLEAN CLEAN CLEAN before you prep to spraypaint.
Use an old squeegee (the fluffy kind) or wadded up tissue paper to cover the venting, make sure not to get ANY paint in the barrel itself. (And also, if you get the fluffy kind, there will be paint residue on the squeegee, let it dry out before removing the squeegee, same with the TP).
If you dont mind paying the extra, go get it anno'ed.
