    Personally I would have painted the scope yellow with gunmetal lines and then weathered it but it's not my gun so carry on. Maybe add a strap on it to. Nvm.

      Just to be clear: I'm not discouraging people from painting/modding NERF blasters. A lot of people do it. But if you paint it to the point where it looks more like a real firearm then a toy you have to be...very careful.
