Step 1: Take Apart Your Gun

Unscrew and paint each part separetly

Step 2: Spray Painting

When you are spray painting it is important your covering areas such as the trigger with painting tape, because if you get paint on the trigger, it may not work properly. Also, don't put ALOT of paint on one spot, instead use quick, short bursts of paint until you cover the whole gun. Make sure to sand down your gun first.
