Whitcomb, it started off as a TM M4A1 (generation 1) three years ago. It now has a metal receiver, RIS and internal upgrades up to 350 fps.
M1 Garand, thanks, but there's not much to painting. It's just pretty much trial and error/experimentation and practice over the years. Once you work with spray cans long enough, you kind of get a 'niche' of how to use it effectively.
One more picture...
So, I'm going ask you guys here...should the 203 stay black? Or does it deserve to get painted? I'm done for today, but if I'm going paint it, it'll be tomorrow.
You guys here and at ASR have brought me into the world of spray painting airsoft guns. My paint job is probably the worst you have ever seen but hey, we al have to start somewhere. Keep in mind this is the first time i have ever touched a spray paint can....Well here it is
it looks darker in real life
Not sure if you can notice but the can had a fit and kinda blew up...
As a tip, don't use stripes, or at least not ones oging in one direction. They rather highlight your rifle, and provide a stark contrast against thebackdrop. Not at all bad for a first time though.

It's a good way to learn. Best thing to do though, would be buy a sheet of plastic and try some different patterns. That way if you screw up, it wasn't on a gun.
Remember though, do a complete basecoat of your lightest color (tan or whatever) and then spray on top of that.
