What color should I paint an airsoft colt 1911? Answered

I have one and I love it, but its clear. I have a bunch of spraypaint colors and can always buy more. Please help me paint it.


General reminder: "Toy" guns which will be used anywhere outside the home should probably be painted in colors which can not possibly be confused with "real" guns. There have been too many instances of kids being drawn on -- and, unfortunately, shot at -- because someone thought they were armed and dangerous when all they really had was a disk gun or watergun that they'd dressed up.

The risk is low, but it's nontrivial and the consequences could be Bad. The 0th commandment applies in full measure: Don't Be Stupid.

The semi-finished product.(Still need to paint the grips)


. Either polished chrome or black. Maybe add some gold accents.
