Blackout Geo3 question

Recently picked up a midnight geo3, and put a blackout screw kit on it (I just like the all black look). The only silver parts left are the macroline fittings, solenoid adjuster, and torpedo- does anyone make black parts for those? Not a huge issue, just wondering though.

Ignore that link blinkpunk posted. Those swivels does not work on geo3's and geo 2.1's. the macro line fittings used on the geo3 and geo2.1 are screwed in with a Allen key, the ones ansgear have for sale will need an actual tool and doesn't fit.

There is no way to get colored screws of the solenoid adjuster, torpedo, macro line fittings, and the feedneck screws. You can try to spray paint it yourself but cover up any holes and the threads

my bad, I also forgot about the pvc in the fittings, so as advised by others, ignore what I have attempted to contribute.

Stop stressing over what your gun looks like and just SHOOT it! Use the extra money you would spend on more useless "upgrades" And put some hard earned cash through the gun in paint form, you'll be way happier.

^^^ LOL what is the deal with that vent. The OP was just curious to know if there are any blackout kits for the other screws of the geo3, he even said "no big deal". Obviously to get a marker to perform better, you just put loads of paint through it, but the OP just wants to personalize his marker even more to his preference. Nothing wrong with that. I think you're stressing out with his question and blowing it out of proportion.

Just checking back to this, thanks for the responses guys! I think I'll just leave it as it is right now, it would be pretty nitpicky to send it in to just get a couple things anno'd. As for the guy telling me to shoot my gun, I put about 3,000 shots a weekend through guns practicing for UConn, so thanks for the tip I'll try to remember.

Again, ignore that link. THOSE DO NOT FIT ON THE GEO3, GEO2.1, EGO11, and CSL (maybe etha and etek4's too). The macroline fitting that Planet Eclipse uses NOW is not like those from macrolineguy at all so it will not fit.

this is the macroline fitting that other companies such as macrolineguy sells:


THIS IS THE MACROLINE FITTING FOR RECENT PLANET ECLIPSE MARKERS:


if you don't know what you're talking about, don't mislead others to purchase a product that doesn't fit or work and possibly damage someone's gear.

I have some left if you want it get at me. Yes they are the correct fittings above & blacked out. I sold all my PE stuff so I actually don't need them anymore. I think I have 2-3 left still new in the little zip lock.

Hey guys FYI I don't have anymore so you don't have to pm me. But I've replied to almost everyone I think that asked me where I got them so I'll just post it here & maybe you guys can get a few if he decides to start selling them. These were a test run that Hobbyhorse/AKA Macroline Guy graciously did for me on several fittings. So they are the same coating he uses on his colored standard fittings. There is one small but very workable catch, is that there are sometimes leaks when you first install it. The quick fix is you just have to remove any excess coating by the base of the fitting where the oring sits & sometimes use an oring pick to also remove any coating material where the macroline goes into but just on the inner part. Not a big deal but that's it. I just like the "black out" look & I can't stand that the fittings don't match. Now let's not flame it's just preferance so if you like or don't like it's your choice.
