I have a M15A4 in clear plastic, can I, my Dad, paint the clear parts black, also can you paint them technically not legally, or does the paint run off or not coat well, if it doesn't make sense just ask again and I will try and explain it slightly better!

Thanks in Advance, Cameron!

Provided you have access to the skirmishers defense, manufacture is covered. You may spray your gun.

Not sure what you mean about paint running off etc?

There's guides on this forum about painting.

Essentially, wet and dry paper, ensure you take off the shine over all the bits you want to spray.

Time to paint, shake cans well, lots of thin light layers > 1 massive thick rubbish layer.

Cool thanks, I will look up the guides, also how do I remove the lower receiver and remove the gearbox in order to paint it or is that covered in the guide?

EDIT: Yeh my Dad has UKARA and do I have a skirmishes defence or is it for over 18's?

You won't need to remove the gearbox etc, just follow the guide posted by Matt!
