I have to sing the praise of this stuff, it looks amazing. I painted my M-16 VN body flat black (from the camo system) and it looks awesome. I use C7 rifles all the time and this makes a marui armalite look 100% more realistic, the body looks just like the real thing. I completely stripped everything off the body, sanded with 400 grit sandpaper, gave her 2 coats (so as not to fill up the trademarks too much) and its great. Not sure what the long term reliability of it but hell for 10$ its well worth it.
