The idea is to do it on a weapon that doesnt have any trademarks... I need to actually draw them in by hand, or using a stencil as the parts are not engraved.

hope that makes sense....
You could get away with using a Lauer Duracoat spraypaint. You need an air compressor and a quality airbrush for application though, you cant really get away with a 20 dollar model painting kit.
(Well, you can, but most model paints are 'candy' and scratch off pretty damn easily)
