Well I had been looking for pictures and found plenty with OD clips, stocks, scopes, and rails but none the reverse with an OD body and black rest. I finally did it today and also ventured into my first attempt at baking paint. I have to say the receiver body squeezed just perfect into my old toaster oven. I used regular krylon OD green camo paint. I scuffed the stock powder coat that the Tippmanns come with with a scotch bright pad and gave it a very light dusting of green. I then toasted it :rolleyes: at about 200* with an old dish rag buffering the bottom of the body from the grate. The first time I let it go for about 15mins on each side.

After the first coat I was astonished at how fast the paint HARDENED. Yes not dried, the paint had hardened. As in the same hardened that can take weeks or months if not properly prepped and executed. So for the second coat I went a little bit heavier and got a good coat on it. I then used my heat gun to dry the paint while it was still hanging. From there it went in the toaster oven, same temperature but for about 1:30 - 2:00 hours each side. It came out nice and hardened again and I allowed it to cool slowly for about an hour.

I reassembled the gun, repositioned the accessories, and looked in awe at the thing. Baking the paint and having patience made it look factory. As far as durability goes only time will tell. If I have issues with it like I did with my old 98 then it will get soda blasted and dura baked. Visually though I'm super happy.

Well I know that real mags fit with no issues and since most serious airsoft companies make exact replicas (minus internals) I dont see why not.

Thanks for the compliment. What do you plan on doing? Other way round? OD clip, grips, scope, butt, and rails?

Nice work Stomis. Doing the marker body & not the accessories is a very nice look. I encouraged my cousin to do his A-5 (M4 mod) the same way & it looks great.

Krylon makes the best low budget paint available & it works great on the plastic/metal parts of a paintball marker. I've got my A-5 done up w/ it & it's held extremely well. At the time I did not bake mine but wish I did. It's something that if you have the time, ability & equipment (old toaster oven) to do so, you should.

Good stuff man, congrats on the paint job.

You bought the brand, not my allegiance.
