    I am looking for the best way to paint my gun a matte black. The reason being that I like my gun being all black but it is starting to get dings and scrapes. I would like to paint over all these to cover up everything that isnt black. Will spray paint work for this or will it look crappy? I want it to be essentially the same color as the receiver but matte.

    Depends on the gun and material.

    your choice in clear coat is almost as important as the paint.

    There may already be a general thread for this, not sure

    I invested in a fairly inexpensive little air compressor and a nice air brush. I haven't regretted the purchase one bit.

    You can still get great results with a spray can for sure, but if you find yourself wanting to do more custom work, the above is a great idea. Plus with an airbrush you have access to so many more paint choices (model paint FTW). Just some food for thought.
