    I've got a G&P Bravo B1 holo sight.
    I need to spray paint it. And I'm asking what's the best way and best paint to use. And If I should use primer and etc. thanks

    Don't spray it. Get a piece of foam or a sponge and spray the paint on the foam, then dab the paint on the sight. Unless your Holo is a good one, many are made with plastic lenses. Paint or thinner will wreck the glass.
    Masking it with tape would be a pain. Whatever you do, keep paint away from the 'glass'.

    Oh yeah, what paint to use.... lacquer. I'd coat what ever you do with clear satin afterwords to keep it from scratching off as much. The same applies to general parts of a gun. The so-called 'miracle finish' you see on G&G guns can be easily reproduced by spraying flat black and then clear satin. Let it dry for at least a day for the lacquer to harden. Works great on the Elite Forces 1911's, which has a very poor paint job. It's paint starts to wear away entirely within a few weeks of use.
