Yea, I sold one of those not too long ago, pretty cool. I don't like how the front ribs are cut out, as dirt gets inside and chews the hell out of the front bolt.

I don't own the whole thing, but I own a body from one of those($20 at D-Day 04). They're pretty neat looking, definately something you don't see everyday. Now if only I could get my hands on one of those chameleon bodies....

I had one of the original Chameleon 98's. Pretty paint but there were a couple problems with them:

1. Tippmann doesn't finish the bodies well enough for fancy paint like that. Every imperfection was glaring.

2. The cast aluminum is a lot softer than automotive sheet metal so every bump or ding caused the paint to come off.

I wish I'd have kept it for the collectible/nostalgia reasons but I SHOOT all my markers and can't have shelf queens.


If you want a Chameleon, go to a paint shop that does small parts like motorcycle tanks and such and have them shoot a body for you. The paint is expensive but a small job like that shouldn't be too bad.

You can pick up a three stage process at Canadian Tire if you're in the great white north. I'm not sure what the store would be in the states. It's in the automotive section, probably the same as what a professional painter would do, but only 30$ and a little work.

Ive had two guns with that chameleon paint on it from various Ebay auctions.

All I can describe it by is a single word "junk". The paint is much softer and less adherent to the metal than it is to a full automotive finish. Remember how easily a car scratches? think of putting one of your guns through the situation with that paint, it will flake and peel off.

If the application is for a shelf hanger then by all means make it look purdy, if its for a playing gear id think twice.

The exact experience I had with my Chameleon 98. The nice thing about M98's is once they start looking crappy you can strip and repaint them with little to no difficulty.
