Hi all - new here, and just nerded out by buying me the Evike Airsoft Pulse Rifle.
Any tips on removing the orange tips without damaging the gun, and also on weathering?

Top orange tip is a little tricky. Try to push in the pins or remove them with needle nose pliers. Then clamp something like a wrench on the orange plastic and give it a good clockwise turn. This should be enough to break the glue holding the plastic and remove the first tip. Clean off any glue residue with nail polish remover

Lower tip is easier. Twist the battery door to the side, reach in, push up the metal tube which raises the orange piece with, and unscrew the metal and orange bit from the door.
Now, get a small dish of nail polish remover, fill it up so the liquid line is above the orange plastic tip and leave it in there for a few hours. This will dissolve the glue and make it incredibly easy to pry off.

As always, make sure to check your states local laws before doing this.

Here is a picture of how it looks at the end. A benefit of doing it like this is that you can also put the tip back on for transport.

It's a great piece, and fun to fire off. I never got around to modding my orange tip. But I imagine you might be better off painting it.

And while your at it, grab a sling and adapter from our fellow RPF'ers:

Your guys's solution to the problem was kinda involved.

what I did was use hot water, and the cap pried right off.

Take a pot, and fill it with water, and put it on the stove. Bring the water to almost a boil. (small bubbles are okay, you're trying to avoid large bubbles, bouncing water, and steam).

Put the orange tip in the pipping hot water, trying to make sure that you're not getting any other parts submerged in the water.
Hold it there for about 20-30 seconds. The orange tip is put on with cheap Chinese glue. So the heat will cause it to become weak. You should be able to remove the orange plastic tip with a set of plyers, AND without damaging the airsoft gun, or the orange plastic cap part. It you're having a hard time getting it off, put it back in the water and hold it there longer, and/or turn up the heat.

Once the cap is off, you should be able to pick off the warm glue with your fingernails. Once all of the glue is off, the cap can be put back on or off, at will, and you can even go back with some hot glue if you want it to stick.

With this method, you should not need any solvents or paints to clean up after.

Ah! Thanks for the tip!

If you can get your hands on a tin of Humbrol Brown Bess, repaint the rifle so it matches what’s seen on screen. Most people just think it’s OD green. They would be mistaken.
