I don't think they do urban (not 100% sure) but they will duracoat it in matte black for you. But if you're gonna pay the extra 200+ dollars to get it duracoated, i'd atleast get it in some form of camo. Get woodland, it'll be fine in an urban setting or indoor arena or whatever.
Someday you will die somehow and somethin's gonna steal your carbon.

Talk to Wookie at Tactical Camo. He'll hook you up, and he's got good prices.

Special Ops will duracoat however you want, even special patterns that you want or special colors, like Black and red digi or dragons or something.

and so will Wookie at around 1/3 of the cost Spec Ops charges. Remember that Spec Ops deals mainly with PB Gear, while Wookie's Tactical Camo deals exclusively with Duracoat painting of both Firearms and PB Markers.

Got a specific design you want, then draw it up and send it to him... The guy does outstanding work, and more important..... He's a great guy.

Or, you can get the Duracoat Kit and apply the camo patterns of your choice and save a TON OF MONEY at the same time.

If you're confident you won't mess up. I screw up stick figures, so that's an option I wouldn't take.

And Wookie isn't a competitor. SpecOps does gear. They have a tiny sideline in Duracoating, but it's a small, small offshoot of their main business, which is why they have the high rates. All Wookie does is Duracoating, which is why he can charge less.

Ever heard of the Old Phrase...."if you dont first succeed, try try again" and that means, its best to get the Duracoat Kit and apply it yourself but, be patient when doing it and if the user screws up, the user can always do it all over again, without blowing a wad of cash in the process.


DIY "Did It Yourself" is an awesome experience!

Actually SpecOps charges a competitive rate for Duracoating. You can google duracoat refinishers and find others that charge $400, $500 or MORE!
Granted their niche market are people who have $3,000 firearms that they use in combat or other situations where camo may make the difference between life and death.

There is also the added benefit in that it keeps your firearm from rusting.
Not really an issue for those of us with aluminum or potmetal paintball markers.

Another thing to consider is that duracoat is expensive (but good) paint and it is very labor intensive to do a digi camo pattern. (I reckon it takes me between 7 - 10 hours to do well).

SpecOps has to pay its people so they can eat.
As for me, I will never make enough money for me to quit my day job, so I just continue to do it for fun.

Hope that helps everyone.
