    wheres the bright colors?

    so anyone else like bright colors for their mags, like pinks, purples, slime greens, yellows? colors that are out of the ordinary(black, blue, red)...currently getting some parts together for a new build, thinking about 3 colors(solid, no splash or other custom ano)...what do you guys like, dislike? i know its up to me what colors im going to eventually pick but just thought i would see what some of you guys were into...thanks

    Personally. Since I only have one gun I use. I want it all flat black. That way its good for use in woods or speedball. If I could have a hand full of purpose built guns I would probably have one with a pink and purple or pink and green combo. I love the looks I get with my pink and purple skates. And there would be the same looks with a grown man using a pink and purple gun.....

    I like the neon yellow with polished cleat accents. There was a MOTM done like that a few years ago. I personally love bright colored markers. Unfortunately I usually opt for black because I know everything gets sold at some point.

    I would love to replicate the Gulf Racing color scheme, the colors are not overly bright, but to me, the baby blue and orange combination is awesome. I have searched around a bit but have not been able to find an anodizer that offers those colors.

    Colors inc in Indy does well with color matching. They don't have a huge variety of anno style options. But they have done me well on color for the last 10 years.

    Nope. Never had any done. My gun is all black. Everything was bought black. Skate plates and motorcycle parts is it. Nimet industries has done all of my stage 3 hard coat. And colors inc has done all the color.

    Yes, that's my second favorite cocker ever made... behind the black/red fade black magic

    Fruity colored guns/parts generally have the worst resale value.

    Black moves the fastest and appears to fetch the best price generally.

    My recommendation is to distinguish yourself via gameplay, not equipment...
    "Accuracy by aiming."


    Definitely not on the A-Team.

    yeah you always have to have a back up plan when you run outa money.
    seems like a common thing, people missmanaging money.

    My sydarm weighs less than yours!!!

    yea i know that resale is harder for custom colors, thats why i was going to go with solid colors on parts, no custom acid, splash, fade, ect. ano jobs for me anytime in the near future, ive seen way to many great ano jobs that sit in forums for sale just because everyone has a different taste... but i doubt i would have a problem parting it out, if i ever wanted to

    I had an RT pro with a really nice orange body and the rest was black. Was poor and didn't have the $$ for a complete anno nor the parts I really wanted. Have thought about having my Karta done like that, either solid with a splash or a tri-fade with a reverse splash. Resale doesn't matter because the Karta is going no where! lol

    i tend to try and keep my bodies a solid color, we all know how many times we have switched out a part for something else, shoot, i just got some parts back from ano recently and somehow i had to take apart 3 different guns to finally make everything just how i wanted it(mind you the parts were supposed to only be for 1 gun, ha!)

    Quote of the year!

    I remember back when the paintball field a few buddy's and I used to frequent wouldn't let us play with walk ons unless we used their rental pumps, and one balled.

    For some reason that line reminded me of that? Good times, hell, now I need all the fancy stuff I can get my hands on just to keep up

    Colors other than black are harder to sell, but solid colors are the next best thing IMO. Partially because its also easier to move parts many times than it is to sell complete markers. You hit the nail on the head with people having different tastes, and with the customizing possibilities with Mags it probably makes it worse. I've seen some Mags that had awesome anodizing jobs for sale, but one or more of the parts were not to my liking so I would shy away from the marker because I knew it be a pain to try and match the ano if I replaced the parts.

    I know we all have markers that we plan on keeping forever, but life doesn't always work out that way.

    Bright colors area always good for me.

    My first automag was and still is purple. Some of my other guns are various colors. I dont worry one bit about being able to hide in the woods.
