I don't have any painted guns, but I'll link to someone's painted guns. I don't think they'll mind.

I think I should paint some of my guns...

My K-Modded 1500(0). The leprekan also has a 1200 with the same paint job.

Is it possible that a paint job could hurt a super soakers performance? When I painted my Max D 6000 gold it suddenly broke.

did you get paint in the reserve cap, trigger, pump, or nozzle? all those could break it. Put tape over the areas that need to move.

I painted my 12000 last night :Hey, that's funny.: :



I found that my push scooter's strap works perfect for this, so I used it.

All I did is took the 1200 sticker off and stuck it on some wax paper, then after it finished drying, I took the sticker off and put it back on the gun. For the extra 0, take a white paint pen and draw it CAREFULLY, it might take some paint off.

im in the middle of painting my 1500, and XP-215
So far I have the primar on. I couldn't find krylon fusion, so I bought this bum brand. Cheap, and I think I works well. Only problem is, they only have shinny paints. I wanted matte.

THAT is a GREAT paintjob, it really suits yous oakers well. Of course if you painted them accordingly to your environment, that is really cool also. I have painted one of my storms and added a mag lite, Ill have the pic posted up ASAP.

Yeah, old topic, but I painted my XP310 in military green for anyone who cares. It looks pretty good, I'll post a picture if I can get one.

Dux and I have done some more painting, including a chrome 21k, and some interesting other ones. But you'll have to wait for 2 weeks to see them cause im going to be gone and I've been to lazy to put them up on my site.

Edit: grammer
