Whats the best paint for my gun??

Hello, I have a rap4 t68 gen6 w/14" tactical rifled barrel. I was wondering if anyone has tested and found the best paint to use in this barrel. Right now i use the AG1 paint that Rap4.com offers. it works well, but i am sick of having to get it shipped to me and 1/2 the paint being broken.. any suggestions?? -thanx

i really enjoy anything by RPS, their "premium" gennerally does pretty good in setups like yours, it has a thick enough shell to survive a blowback style marker just it is thin enough to break fairly easily on your target. It does not have the largest shelf life though, if looking for a decent shelf life look into "nightmere" a slightly thicker shell but will last for a good long while when sitting on a shelf compared to the premium

I like RPS Premium, DXS, Toxic, and White box.
If 1/2 the paint is broken when you receive it, i would contact Rap4 about this and complain, and offer that they refund you paint, or cash and change their shipping method. They are pretty good about customer service.

Ask other ballers in your area what paint is working well for them, it's usually a geographical matter.

That or it isnt always suited for the area. (ie: Cold temp/Warm temp, Humidity, Seasons)

The travel from the manufacturer to the field/store is also a factor.
