Talking UGLY TES grips, I can tell you how to fix that!

The TES comes with super ugly clear grips that make the gun look very cheap, and so far no aftermarket grips for the TES are sold yet. So heres what I did, and colored them black.
(The picture is at the bottom)

Supplies needed: Airbrush/ spray paint, (preferably airbrush.)
Make sure the paint will stick to plastic (ask somone at a hardware store or anyone knowlegable.
Masking Tape, exacto-knife

Process: First take your grips off and work on newspaper or a disposable surface. Mask off the LCD window with masking tape and cut the shape of the masking tape with the exacto- knife. Put the tape on the INSIDE of the window. then put masking tape around the OUTSIDE edge of the grips so you do not spray the outside. Only paint the inside of the grips. Put about three even coats. The reason for painting ONLY the inside is because if the outdide of the grips are painted the paint will chip over time and look ugly. Since the grips are clear it is black all over cause you can see the paint on the inside. TIP: to make sure you covered the whole surface, hold the grips up to a light and if any cracks of light shows through, you need another coat. Also, make sure your previous coat dries before putting another coat on. Heres the end result.

The pic won't come up. It just says "Forbidden", and some other crap.

I agree. The Clear grips gave it away that it isnt a timmy. Ha j/k but I think everone should paint the grips.

What i did was go through some magazines and just found cool looking pages that had colors that mached my gun. Then i cut the page out and cut pieces that fit on the inside of the grips. It might not look as good as painting them, but not everyone has acess to paint, and its free if you allready have a magazine or some other colored paper. I cant wait for some after market grips though.

yes, how does one not have access to spray paint..??

and also, dont hold your breath about grips that fit the m92 frame... dragun is pretty slow when it comes to manufaturing things. i mean, look at the one kit, everyone thinks is discontinued, when in reality it is simply out of stock at the dragun dealers... they are restocking, but slowly.... dragun

actually, I give them points for originality, on the idea of using pages and stuff from magazines. I can just see it now....strippers on the inside of the handles, the lcd screen being placed perfectly so as not to get you in trouble with any female officials! LOL just kidding, but seriously, definitely points for originality with that idea.
