Yes. Just make sure you don't paint inside the barrel.

Also, know that after it's painted it's going to be very hard to resell unless you take the paint off, or you do a really good job and people think it's cool. Which is rare.
My Feedback. If you've done business with me, post up, good or bad!

Yes, and yes.

The only problem with masks is adhesion to flexible parts, most rubbery bits on modern masks will flake when bent at all.

And never use it. Rattle can paint jobs don't last too long before it gets scratched or rubbed off from hard play. You will have to retouch often to keep it looking nice.

If you use spray paint. Make sure you add a hard layer of varnish or a kind of coating. I did a sick nasty paintjob to my old loader and i used to get hit in the loader and there was no damage whatsoever. Make sure you leave each layer to dry for a day just to play it safe.

Use oil based paints so that water and other material cant mess it up. i reccomend one solid colour. i have done this to vents and events and it came out very sure to take off the lenses and straps.

dont forget to cover up what you dont want painted.

i may post up some pictures for examples....

You can go to an auto parts store like Pep Boys or Kragen and look for "Plastic Adhesion Promoter". They usually come in a spray can. It's used to help paint stick to plastic parts on cars, such as bumpers. Back when I was into model trains, people would spray this first, then paint their model trains. Usually if plastic bends, the paint would chip. But with Plastic Adhesion Promoter, if the plastic bends, the paint doesn't chip. Perfect for masks.

Some field will not allow a mask that has been alter in any way that voids the warranty of the mask.
