epoxied site rail?

Ok so I am wanting to add a site rail to my KP. I wish I would have asked palmers to add it when I thought about it. But now that it has been nickled it kind of too late.

My question is this.

Can I tank this site rail (Sheridan Paintball Gun Pistol Sight Rail P68 PGP KP3 - eBay (item 150238323161 end time Aug-17-08 12:36:42 PDT) ) and epoxy it with knowledge that it will last and that it wont just bust off and possibly take nickle with it? I am wary about epoxying my gun and having it look tacky when I am done.

A different thought I had to affix this is to strip a small amount of nickle from the top of the tube then solder a brass nut in place. then screw the site rail onto the nut. I am not sure about this possibility either.

You'll definatly be able to epoxy it. It'll also look decent, though you may want to get it nickle plated first to match you gun. Stripping the existing nickle and soldering is a bad idea.

Well my gun is a KP with nickled barrel and a black duracoated stock. So i'm not too worried about a flat black sight rail.

Black also makes it a little easier to see down the rail. I bought one of those and put it on my P68. One end was raw, I didn't think of it at the time, but the on annoed side is quite difficult to focus with.

Any automotive store will have a nice selection of two part epoxies. You can get some 3000 psi stuff that will never budge.

Do I just want a small amount or a light bead of it down the rail?

Depends on which epoxy you get....If it's the liquid version a little bit goes a very long way,if it's the putty version just put enough to cover the rail and trim the excess when done

Use a marine epoxy 5 ton should do just fine, be sure not to squeeze out to much when clamping.
