And that is the way you do it.  You seem to know what you are doing so I will leave you to it.  Make sure you post pics when you are done!

If and when I do it I definitely will.  If I get the courage to try it wont be until the end of the warranty for obvious reasons lol.

I don't really understand what you mean, especially about metal rubbing with plastic...  If I did decide to refinish it I would only do the the body when it's disassembled completely so I don't get anything else or change any of the tolerances.

Sorry, I thought you were going to duracoat the gun while the internals were still in the gun. Thank god you're not. I also cringe if somethings not fully taken apart. But, when duracoating real firearms, I see duracoat-ers (is that a word? It is now.) duracoat the insides of the receiver as well for extra strength. Obviously they tear down the WHOLE gun. On an airsoft gun, if you sprayed the inside as well, I would see this detract from the blowback action and slow things up... metal rubbing with plastic as in the gas nozzle, and other plastic/metal internal parts in the gun scraping the duracoat isn't the greatest of ideas (IMO). lol

Jonathan from Airsoftology says the noticeable difference he sees with the new hop up, just to stir you up a bit more. :P



"Made In..." is required by US Customs to be made permanent on the gun itself. KWA has chosen to laser engrave it, which is supposedly removable with Aluminum Black Liquid, though I believe it requires more work than simply applying it over the trades.

There were quite a few non-KWA airsoft guns that were seized a while back by US customs for not following with the ever-so changing US custom requirements. That is why you no longer see the "Made in ..." stickers anymore.
There's some inside info!

I knew one person who spray painted his KWA SR10 with all his internals inside.... Even with a light coat, some of the spray paint got into the inner barrel, jammed a bb, which ended up stripping his piston and busting one of his bearings.

He didn't even bother to take the inner out? Yikes
