I custom paint a lot of my rifle and I am wondering if I can paint the kill flash to match my rifle while not affecting the effectiveness? Thanks

I would think it would be ok. I believe Nikon's ARD on the coyote special is camo'ed.

I know you can do it with one of the fine mist air guns. I would be careful about using the spray can's because they have a tendency to splat if you don't know what you are doing.

Nope, it's black plastic, and it doesn't thread on particularly well...
