Marq Anno Discoloring

I was going to change the mode on my Marq, when I took off the grip and seen that the anno has changed color. I haven't even had this gun for a month. I never cleaned it with any chemicals or anything, just always wiped it off with a towel. I'm wondering what would of caused this and if its going to happen to the rest of my gun. Heres some pics of it.

I'm not sure if this is true but there may be a possibility there was some chemical in the paintball, who knows.

The first picture looks like acid from the battery may have leaked under there. Was the gun brand new? Just a guess.

Unless the rainstorm was restricted to the interior of the grip panel, that isn't the issue. Also, it would take some seriously toxic rain to wear down hardened aluminum oxide.

If you leave paint in between the grip and the frame for a long period of time, there's a chance the paint can fade the anno. Also watch for paint on the battery, because that acid isn't friendly to many surfaces.

I know thats it wasn't from the rain because I had it off after the torny and didn''t notice anything. There was paint in there for 2 days tops. It was RPS premium so it wasn't ****ty paint. I still don't know what would of caused this.

I'm not sure what could have caused that, my best guess is that the battery was put in wrong causing it to leak.

Regardless though, it looks like the damage is all underneath where the grips sit, so unless you are using clear grips, I wouldn't worry about it too much.
