MP7 Airsoft "Custom" by biometal79 MP7 Airsoft "Custom" by biometal79
I know a custom Paint job for a toy gun ain't exactly art - but any kind of photography is - ha! gotcha.

Here's my custom painted MP7 (Well R4, actually, a quite cheap, popular Clone of the japanese Model from Tokyo Marui) in tan.

Why tan? Because I recently got a FN SCAR in tan. Since they have a similar "feel" due to all those rails and lots of plastic, I thought It'd look cool.

Paint job done disassembled, Metal Parts were thoroughly treated with paint remover (the cheap chinese paint job was quite awful and came off easily).

I used acrylic "gun paint" spray cans, which smell like a toxic hell and make you all woozy, but are worth the effort. The finish is superb and, at least on the metal parts, quite scratchproof.

Pretty cool, I was thinking of picking one of those up, they're only like 90 bucks anyways...

Airsoft guns aren't toys, they are real firearms and should be treated so.

I was just about to post the same comment.

( Not dedicated to you hellcatdave ) Never think airsoft gun as a toy, it looks like a real gun, it fires stuff from the barrel = real gun, just the mecanism is different and the bullet speed is slower.

Getting pretty close to the real deal, though, we can get up to 900 fps now.

Well yeah, in that case its basically a 6mm rifle then. SO it is NOT a toy.

Hey how did you paint that. And what kind of paint did you use it looks great. one of the best paint jobs i have seen. Did you tape all of that off or take it apart? it would go good with my tan m4 thanks!

Take it apart, then spray-paint the individual pieces.

As this is a Chinese clone, its performance can range from okay to very crappy. I recommend getting the original Tokyo Marui one. Definitely get the long hi-cap-magazine, and at least 2 replacement batteries.

What'd you use for the plastic grip? It looks like you covered it in a rubber grip, perhaps a bike inner tube?

By chance where did you get your paint from? I'm looking for a super durable paint for my Custom SR-25 and don't want to use car paint because its such high gloss.

Aha, thanks for doing this. I've been considering painting my MP7 because I mainly play in woodlands, and wanted it to blend in. But I've been afraid to ruin the stylish black standard finish. But I see that the MP7 can look sexy in other colors.

very awesome MP7.
I've always loved airsoft guns, I just signed the petition to get them legal here in australia again too.
some day I'll get one, probably a FAMAS and/or a M24 :D

oh, and btw, thats a heavily tweaked famas. you can tell by the m16 mag and the cheek guard. It's got a custom trigger guard, probably taken from a p90 and modified to fit the famas.
