I've been looking around online for a guide to painting a spudgun, but I can't find any. All I need to know is what kind of paint will work on PVC, and do I need to sand and such first? If anyone can tell me or point me to a guide that would be great.

I used krylon primer and paint, and with the primer you have to sand glossy surfaces (meaning pvc) with 220 grit sandpaper, and then take all the dust off with a tack cloth. If you want to do this, it works okay, but it supposedly will chip fairly easily. I wouldn't know, i'm not done. With Krylon Fusion, it will supposedly bond to plastic. It doesn't require any sanding, but i think it takes a week to fully cure. Someone had that chip when they hit it with a drill on accident, so it can chip too. It depends on the color and texture you want for the finish. I'm using olive drab krylon camoflage paint for the color. I believe all of the fusion colors are glossy.

Hope this helps.

What I'd like to do if I can find the right colors is a theme to match the website http://www.hardocp.com , then I'll get it posted there :) Like I'll have maroon fittings and black barrel/chamber (and my plug is already black). But a whole week to cure... grr... wait, that gives me an excuse to build a second gun! :D
