:huh:

1) Paint each side of the gun shell with white primer AFTER it has been gutted.

2) Choose a base coat, and airbrush it on.

3) Choose two more colors, and airbrush them on.

For artic camo, use a base coast of white, and add gray and black.

For forest camo, use a base coat of brown, and add green and black.

Do all of this with an airbrush. The finished product:

Well I don't have an airbrush and I pretty sure that they are expensive........ Is there any way to do this without an airbrush?

Airbrush is best. If your a first time spray painter, a cammoflauge job will be difficult, although it can be done.

I like camo a lot myself, but I don't have an airbrush. Just the other day, I went to my local Army Surplus (the best store in the world) and noticed something interesting. Camouflage duct tape. It was only 3.99 so I picked up a roll for my guns. I already gave my maxshot a mini makeover.

In the photo above, you can mostly see the taped barrel and handle of the gun. The black electrical tape on the handle is covering some craft foam I hotguled on for a little extra comfort. The other piece of electrical tape is reinforcing the front of the gun to the back of it. (After seeing Grinch's MS, I was a little shaken)

In the other two photos, you can see the tape in the grooves of the gun and a the duct tape.

So, thats another route you can take if your local Army Surplus carries it. I didn't want to cover the whole thing in camo tape, but you can do what ever you want.

here's some olive drab duct tape. That will work with a bit of thin electrical tape. Otherwise, here's some higher quality camo tape.
Here's a few more:
hardwoods camo
barrel tip tape,to prove it's a non-lethal (yeah...right) airgun.
And that's about it that I can find here.
