This step is completely optional, do it for extra safety. Take your packing tape, and wrap up the important/open areas of the marker. Parts like the barrel, cocking mechanism, paintball feeding tube, trigger, CO2 tube, and CO2 nozzle.

Remove the barrel and get your black, gray, and green spray paint. Paint it black if its colored, if its black than there is no reason. Next, paint it spotted or striped. Let it dry, screw on the barrel, and marvel in its beautiful presence.
