Hi, i'm not asking how to remove the paint... figured id get that straight cuz i know you guys aren't allowed to tell me. But if i just got rid of the initial paint on the outside and left the outer barrel orange tip on it, would that void my warranty? The link is to kind of give you a picture.

Removal of orange tip or markings will automatically void your warranty.

The orange tip needs to be visible for certain amount. The shell cover the barrel would not be enough unless the barrel itself protruded out, which would not be possible since the FPG folds together into a box.

Scratches are no the same as removal.

The orange tip has nothing to do with the warranty but is about interstate commerce.  KWA -- who is involved in interstate commerce -- will not repair any airsoft gun that lacks one.  If you removed it just put it back on before having it serviced.  If you removed the paint you can paint it or just buy a new one in orange from the Proshop.

Note KWA has both orange and black muzzle devices for same in their parts department.

Removing the original orange tip within the warranty period does void the warranty...as stated on your warranty information card that came with your product.
