OD green or BLACK?

I was wondering if i should get an OD scilencer and foregrip for my G&G MP5 Blowback or a the same two things black?? This is the gun= https://www.buyairsoft.ca/rifles/ele...-blowback.html .... I mostly play in wooded areas so i think i should get the OD but i want to hear your input. I am getting the scilencer and foregrip from airsoftparts.ca. This is the OD scilencer http://www.airsoftparts.ca/store2/in...oducts_id=1127 , good? bad??

NO FLAMERS IF YOUR IN HERE TO BE A DICK THEN LEAVE...thanks.

All black tactical look or black and OD look??

I painted my MP5SD a few years ago, works great as far as camo goes, but it looks kinda non-MP5ish, and sometimes wish I didn't. But like I said, it works great, especially when I'm all camo'd up including facepaint or my ghillie. Was more out of necessity than anything else.

Back on topic, I like my MP5 SD6 all black. No point painting it some other color or tacking on tacticool multi colored parts. If you decide to go for different color parts, or even a camo paint job, make sure it is well done. A bad paint job can ruin your gun IMHO.

I would recommend u get a non-blow back MP5 from G&G cause i've heard if it breaks they're really hard to find replacement parts but to answer your question if u get the OD paint more of your gun OD to and that would look better than just two things being green.

MP5s are not bush guns and so they look kind of stupid in OD, at least in my opinion.

Black is how I would go.

An MP5 is not really built to be a wooded area weapon, so you're probably better to go with the all-black for the resale value. That being said, black is pretty easy to spot, especially with the long linear lines of a gun when you're trying to hide.

You could always use a few real world products to help conceal you.

Camoform tape I've used it, and didn't like it... YMMV

Suppressor Cover I like this one, because how many people are even going to realize what you have there and why...

Ghillie Wrap But, it can hang up on things and be a PITA.

The kid is 13. He's prone to getting his feelings hurt.

Anyway, I've used the camoform before on my CA M24 a few years back, and to be honest, I found it to be very effective. Since its a fabric it's not exactly reflective as a camo paintjob would be on a rounded surface (Rifle).

That, and having the bonus of not worrying about a ghillie wrap is nice, nothing to get tangled or anything. Then again, I used mine over a bolt action rifle so it didn't seem too out of place. An mp5 would seem a bit strange if wrapped up like so.

If anything, The color is just up to you, Green could be a bonus, sure. But you won't exactly be using it for another five years from now I hope. Camouflaging guns in my opinion is only useful if you plan to conceal yourself in a stationary manner. If you're going to be running around and gunning ,there is no real purpose of having camouflage as its hard (Not impossible) to conceal yourself at the ranges you will be engaging people at.
