To paint the clear parts, I opened and disassembled mine. While I was at it I greased the tracks for the cocking rods and also sanded the said rods.
The shotgun is MUCH easier to cock now.
Warning : disassembling the "mechbox" (place where the spring+piston are) more then once or twice will surely results in plastic breakage. I didn't open mine and I already see cracks in the plastic around screws.
On a side note : mine chronies at 260 fps with 0.2 and I get a good spread with 0.25 (with 0.2 they just spread too much to be reliable I find).
