It's a rather odd situation when it comes to paint. Having a clear receiver classifies the gun as an imitation firearm, which is legal to import and transfer, whereas a solid colour receiver classifies the same gun as a replica firearm, which is illegal to import and transfer, but NOT illegal to own. However, the act of painting the receiver itself can be constituted as "manufacturing a replica firearm" by some interpretations of the law.

I would have no qualms about painting a clear receiver black myself...
