Alright well, this was my first time painting a nerf gun successfully with model paint, so cut me some slack. I put a regular sm1500 below it in this pic just for comparison...
For some reason the barrels look angled in this pic, the gun fires normal

Here is the dull side (splitfire style)...

This is just a cool dollar store pistol I found on Maui, Hawaii. I sawed out the air restrictors and believe it or not, it gets forty feet with yellow stock micros! I was blown away. Anyway here are some pics...

Worthy of a NF integration?

Cool paintjob, but I've seen a lot better ones.

It was one of his first paintjobs man, everyone needs to start somewhere. I don't think it looks too bad at all, I like the color scheme. I used model paint for my nitefinder too and it's very difficult to get the paint spread out uniform with the whole gun. I still haven't used spraypaint myself, but everyone uses Krylon Fusion spraypaint that does not call for a primer before hand, and it paints the gun very well from what I've seen. You might want to go that route for your next project.

Great first-time paintjob, though I was never a fan of the Splitfire/Powerclip colors. (I liked the transparent sides but not the solid sides) In fact at first they confused me, when I first saw a PowerClip with its barrels facing the right I thought somebody had painted it because I had never seen a PowerClips blue/yellow side, just the clear part.

That dollar store gun looks schweet, the cocking handle looks like it hurts though. You should integrate an NF into it.
