:siren:First off, before you remove your orange tip from your airsoft gun: Take in consideration that if people see you with it, they will most likely think it is a real firearm. Please, keep your gun in a safe place when not playing if you have removed the tip.:siren:
There are multiple ways an orange tip may be fixated onto the end of your gun. The most common are...
1. Plastic orange flashhider
2. Metal orange flashhider
3. Front part of gun painted orange.
1. If your gun happens to have a plastic orange flashhider, removal is sometimes easy. Simply screw off the tip, and attach a new black one. However, if the tip is glued on, there are a variety of ways to remove it.
A quick and dirty way to do so is to grab a pair of pliers, and force it off! You may be able to get the tip off, but be warned: Bits of plastic and glue may remain on the threads, thus making it hard to correctly attach a new flashhider or mock silencer.
2. & 3. If your AEG or GBB pistol or rifle has a black painted orange flashhider or frontend, removal is a bit tricky. There are multiple ways, and I will put a detailed tutorial on how to remove it easily.
You could simply paint over the tip. I do not recommend this, as it may be hard to find a coat that matches the rest of the gun. The easiest, cheapest, and most cost efficient way is to use nail polish remover.
Firstly, grab yourself a bottle of nail polish remover and some paper towels. Make sure to remove your pistol's magazine, slide, barrel, and recoil spring before doing this! Same applies for AEGs
Keep the towels handy, as they will get dirty quickly.
Now, apply the polish remover to your paper towel and rub on your tip. ()
Make sure to work your way into small crevices for a nicer clean up!
Be careful of the iron sight dots if any. They will dissolve as easily as the hideous orange!
After about ten minutes of rubbing, your gun should be perfectly illegal and beautiful! I hope this tutorial has helped you! Except for the fact that the only regulars in this section all know how to do this
