First, edit your spelling. Its fine if you cant spell well, but you can still go back, edit your post, and make the necessary changes.

Second, do you want to paint your a5 pink or green? You mention two diffrent colors.

Lastly, how much money are you willing to spend on this?

well theres a step by step on how to do it with spray paint and clear coat.. take apart the gun, lightly sand then spray green 2 coats wait between coats for them to dry then do 4 - 5 clear coats and wait for them to dry between coats...

I would suggest putting a surface primer onto the gun. Also, after sanding make sure you wash the parts in soap and water. To get rid of the water splash the parts with alcohol to displace the water.

Wait a long time between coats. Don't rush and go slow. Want a good looking part? Work on it for a week at the very least. After all the coats and all the wait, wait another week for the paint to resist chipping.

TAKE IT ALL SLOW.

I wouldn't Make It solid green, I would do some Green Barret Tiger Stripes, its less noticeable on the field and it looks good, however you do it is up to u, but it looks really good on your gun, use paint for making small paint patches on vehicles, that paint lasts longer. -MNSC :ghillie:

I re did my A-5 with a camo green as well. Like the other post said, go slow. I took apart my A-5, removed all the pieces I didn't want green, (stock, barrel shroud, trigger frame etc...) sanded it down with 100 grit sand paper, making sure to remove all oxidized paint and all paint in general till the whole thing was silver in color. I bought KRYLON camoflauge (sp?) paint at wal-mart, ran me 5 bucks a can. One can was plenty. I made sure my frame that I was painting was completely clean, washed it with soap and water. Let it dry for a long time. I covered the bottom, or where the internals go with blue painters tape so that there was no metal showing. I then sprayed THIN coats of paint onto each half and let them dry for 15 min. 4-5 coats went onto the halves. Spray the paint from atleast 10 inches away to get even strokes. I let the halves dry for 3 days before I sprayed 2 coats of clear coat onto the halves. My gun looks soooo bangin now! Hope this helps!
Always looking for cheap Tippmanns and Tippmann upgrades. What do you have? PM me! Don't be shy!


I also do custom paint jobs-digi camo, tiger stripe, snow/urban camo and desert camo.
