Is painting a airsoft gun illegal?

Recommended Posts

Is Painting your airsoft gun legal as long as you don't paint the orange tip? :a-salute:

Do you live in the US? If so you can even paint the orange tip :a-cool:

 

If you live in canada or another country with similar regulations that require guns to be clear, then it could be illegal. But I'm not the person to ask about the laws outside the US.

As I understand it, the orange tip is a manufacturer requirement, you cant paint it how you like, but be aware that the orange tip is all that lets the public know that it's not real. As I play with my son in the back yard, the orange tip is very important so if my neighbors see, the know they are toys because they look real from any small distance.

you shouldn't be playing in your backyard in the first place, or anywhere where people can see the guns.

 

The purpose for orange tips is because of U.S. Custom laws and laws regarding sales of airsof guns. Custom states that all airsoft gun imported into the U.S. must have a orange tip. All airsoft guns sold from retailers must have an orange tip as well. Thats it.

 

Orange tips do not tell the public that it is a fake gun, because a fake gun shouldn't be seen in public. and there is nothing stopping someone from painting orange tip onto a real gun.
