Thank you for your reply.
Is painting the guns allowed (as in is it legal in Canada)?
I would hate to end up losing a $200 investment by using a $5 solution. I have seen some amazing paint jobs in some of the forums, but none of them say if the gun was originally a "clear" gun.
I have, in the past, done paint jobs on paintball markers for others and have done a pretty fair job, imho.
