Just thot I'd throw the idea out to see if any1 had been able to do it!
Keep in mind what I just said, about MOST airsoft pot metals having the capacity to oxidize in to a very dull and dark grey. This happens even quicker if you plan on handling the gun with your bare hands, as the oils in your hands can have other effects on some pot metals - especially those with high zinc content (almost all pot metals have some level of zinc content to them for malleability).
