Hot glue is great for stuff like jewels, but you gotta be careful not to damage the jewel itself. Polyurethane adhesive (like construction adhesive) can be a good option too. Or even rubber cement/ contact adhesive.
Thanks for the input! I was thinking maybe some dust red instead of the blue, but we'll have to see how it looks put together and go from there. I'll try a gentle pass with hot glue.

DUDE I almost had one snagged in the forums a while back, but it got bought minutes before I posted. The barrel will look nice, but not quite that nice.

Thanks for looking!
I've used Crazy Glue and two part epoxy... the only bad part with two part epoxy is that it's pretty much permanent, so if you wanted to re-anno something that sticker is probably going to be trashed coming off the second time.


I don't like hot glue due to the amount of heat needed and the strings of melted glue everywhere once you stick something onto something else.

And God replied, “Just wait and see the neighbors I shall inflict upon them.”

Bummer, I haven’t actually seen one in a very long time. Through MCB all things are possible, I’m sure we can find one for you!

For the jewel, I would look at some commercial/industrial double sided tape. 3M makes everything and its all available on Amazon

Lemme know if you find it!

They're in that weird space of paintball stuff where they're fairly rare and tend to sell quickly, but there's not sought after with real fervor. I think the one I missed out on was listed for $50 and sold in a matter of moments.

this is neat. that star design is something I can replicate in powder coat easily.

imagine this...I'll do a marker half white and half blue. mask off stars then powder the whole thing red, peel off mask and wala red with blue and white stars.

Shoe goo to hold the jewel on. Holds like crazy but comes off easy if you need to remove it for some reason
