The black foregrip matched my gun, but I wanted it to look like my receiver. I didn't want the entire grip white, so I decided to keep the textured parts and hardware unpainted. Most of the screws and bolts came out quickly, but the large one at the front wouldn't come undone. I covered the handgrip area with small labels because I could align them neatly with the edges. I had a ton from a previous project.

I bought some white spray paint meant for plastic. I hung the grip from a bamboo skewer through one of the bolt holes and suspended it on a cardboard box to keep things clean. I'm glad I spent the extra money for the 2X stuff, but I should have had better lighting because the paint was thin in some places.

The paint dried overnight, and I reassembled the grip and installed it. At a glance, it's hard to see where the color was imperfect, and I like how the black areas pop against the white sections. I think I will buy a stock with a cheek riser and give that a paint job too. It may end up looking kind of like winter camo.
