This will show you how to paint an airsoft gun tiger stripe camouflage, using only paint and masking tape. This is a way to spice up those solid black guns, or make a clear gun, look awesome.

Step 1: General Info and Supplies

Please know that you probably won't want to paint your $250 airsoft gun on your first try. If you mess up, it could look bad. So please try it on a lower quality gun first unless you are positive you can do a good job.

The supplies
- Two colors of paint. (Unless you want black stripes. Then you only need one color.)
- A roll of masking or painters tape.
- A gun to paint.
My air soft gun is plastic, can I still do it?
ive been looking through this , it looks pretty awesome but do you think it'l work for my gun?<br>ive never painted my guns ( properly ) so i have no idea how to :L<br><br>( picture and stuff )<br><br>cause of the orange detail im not sure if the paint will look tacky, should i clear coat it and use a primer?<br>if you could reply i would be very greatfull :D
Sorry for the late reply! What I would do is paint the whole gun over with a flat black first and make sure it all looks the same and then go through the camo process.
ahaa no worries regarding timing , <br>thanks for the advice :)
Do you ever have problems with jamming any of the moving parts with the paint? How would I avoid this?
Well, I have never had any problems with this, but if you want to be extra careful, then cover up anything that you think might be damaged by the paint. As I said earlier, I have never had any problems.
isn't that a colt m IV? My friend has one like that!
I don't remember what it is called, but I have a colt mk iv, and it is different. I got this gun at walmart.
epic<br />
Thanks. This one was a quicky, so I didn't expect much from it, but it turned out great!
om gonna do this with m p329 and my a1.a
How did it turn out?
if you can put it back together i would suggest taking your gun apart and painting the casing and putting it back together when your done so you cant mess it up in any way<br />
But if the paint gets in the cracks, such as the mag release button and you push it, then the paint will flake off or the button will jam.
