Trilogy pump paintjob

Hi guys, I just bought this gun from another member on here. You can see in the pictures below that some of the anodizing has been removed. I was wondering what my options were for painting it myself. I've found things online that say spray painting doesn't work and some that say it does. I've also seen things that said your gun might smell bad if you paint it yourself. I'm not sure how that would happen. Thanks for any help.

Duracoat is an option, they have cheap spray kits that are supposed to be easy. I tested some krylon spray paint on the back block of my trilogy and can say that it was ok everywhere but the sharp corners. 3 coats rubbed off on the edges pretty quickly, so not a long term solution I would think.

I would use a paint/coating for real steel guns like duracoat, cerakote, or alumahyde. Tons better than regular spray paint. Looks more legit and is more durable. Something with a few steps or with baking time will be better for sure.


I'm also interested in plastidip spray. They have metallic sprays now that might be pretty cool. And if you don't like it, you just peel it off. I did my loader in plastidip camo tan and it's held up alright.

I might have a way to get it powder coated, my brother in law owns a paintball field and has gotten some of his older 98's powdercoated. My concern with that is in the manual is says you shouldn't remove the hammer or hammer lug without proper training. This is my first autococker and i've heard they can be tricky (even though I've heard this is a pretty basic one) so i dont really want to mess with any of that stuff.

Not on a Trilogy. They're super easy. Taking the hammer out will mean you'll have to retime it, but that's not hard. The valve is just like a Spyder valve.

Looks like it's a pump so no need to time it.

It is a pump, I was hoping that meant i didn't need to time it.

I'll definitely post finished pics when its finished but it might be awhile. This is my first pump and i want to get in some good play time before I go tearing it all apart and such.

Thanks for the help everyone.

You'll still have to reset the hammer lug; this is technically considering timing.
