I think it needs to be anodized, not painted. There are a few anodizing services you can find in these forums.

I wouldn't recommend painting a mini... However I'm in the process of painting my trilogy body, it's not of very much value and I wanted to see how it would come out so I'm not really all that worried about ruining it. However if you attempt to paint your mini body it will ruin the value of the marker, and possibly the marker it's self. Please do not attempt to paint. Go with Anno lol

You could also try duracoat. Or powdercoating

you can paint anything, but keeping on what you put on it is a different matter all together. look at a good quality clear coat and test it out on something that you can use as a trial.

people for years have been painting cars, and not anno'ing them. so using that process, you should be able to get the same for your gun.

Very true I've painted quite a few bikes (the pedal kind) with spray paint (primer, paint, clear coat) and they came out looking like they would from a factory. The key is proper sanding handling and finishing. However I think it would be very tough to do in an amateur setting without harming something on the marker.

I used to paint with regular rattle can paint. No matter how great you prep it, and clear coat it, it will still come off. That's why I've decided to duracoat. I've been doing it for quite some time now.

You can paint anything.

If you paint it, just keep in mind to try not to mess with the factory sealing surfaces (i.e. where the gaskets are [just as a general precaution]) And also prep, prep, prep. I also used about 4 - 6 coats of clear as I know it will see a LOT of abuse. Have to be careful with this tho, you could put on so much clear that it just peels right off.

So far, that paint job made it through a season of play and came out roses.

P.S. I also put it in the oven for about an hour at the lowest setting my oven could go with the door slightly cracked to get it down to the 140-160 range, just to add an extra hardening factor for the clear. Again, more overkill.

I just looked through your duracoat thread, you do phenomenal work. Probably the best looking stuff I've seen. It's very tempting
