Hey Big Bone, I've noticed on some of the paint jobs you paint the markers almost completely but don't do the grip/trigger frame. Is it hard to do or can it not be done on an electro grip or something? I ask because hopefully this spring I'll be sending you my marker (an MR2) once I've got all the parts for it, and my grip's a bit scratched and I want it to totally match the rest of the gun.

Thanks for the help

OK, now I feel pretty silly having gone to the photo gallery and seeing the vast majority of grips painted...but I do wonder how you do it. I've never even thought about attempting to take all the wires and board and whatever out of my grip...do you take everything out to paint them?

they have to, because Duracoat needs to be baked on I believe. You might want to learn how to take your grip frame/board and stuff apart, in case anything ever goes wrong, its generally a good idea to know how your marker works, and how everything goes together

Though I have painted almost every grip on every gun I've done that is still a very good questions.

Grips are in fact one of the more sensitive parts of a marker and from a painting standpoint need allot of care to properly paint but it's not that big of a deal. Just about anything that can be assembled can also be disassembled so removing the boards and whatnot are sometimes difficult but doable. The real hard part is the prep work involved and keeping tolerance sensitive areas (like the trigger assembly) free of paint and sand.
