Need help spray painting gameface m4 gf15a4

So i purchased a gameface gf15a4 and most of the gun is clear plastic ( http://ep.yimg.com/ay/airgundepot/ga...sic-army-6.gif ) and i want to paint it all black. I have valspar black plastic spray paint for outdoors but i dont know a safe method of painting without damaging the internals. Does anyone know a safe method of painting the gun all black without taking everything apart? If so it would be much appreciated. Im not into the clear plastic and it would reflect off lights and give away my position more. Thanks

Painting the upper receiver and front assembly isn't too hard, just take out the hop and inner barrel, maybe stick a wad of painters tap inside the outer barrel.

The lower is a lil harder. Tape the top of the gear box and on the top edge of the lower receiver. Dust it lightly around the selector switch giving it light passes in each of the firing modes. remove or move the stock to the max extension.

Aside from that all I can say is go with many many many light dusting of paint versus a few heavy coats. Toss in some tan and od green to help make it look "more realistic"

Cheers and good luck.

I always foam block and mask off the muzzle, the sights, and the feedpath.

Then I have at it. I don't take shit apart or cover anything else.

Mask the gun with painters tape, roll up some paper towel and plug the barrel. use Krylon 'camo' spray paint, its Ultra flat. Then just do light sprays from about 15cm, NEVER spray too much or you'll get paint runs.. which look AWFUL
