What Is an Orange Tip?

The orange tip is a bright, oversized, plastic tip which is permanently attached to the airsoft gun barrel. It is required by law in many countries to denote that the gun is an airsoft gun rather than an actual firearm. In the United States, the orange tip is required to be on the gun by the Consumer Product Safety Commission as an extra layer of safety.

How To Remove an Orange Tip

The process of removing the orange tip from an airsoft gun is surprisingly easy, and can be done with a few simple tools. The first step is to gather the necessary tools, which include a hex wrench, a pair of pliers, and an appropriately sized screwdriver. Once the tools are acquired, the first step is to use the hex wrench to unscrew the cap on the barrel that holds the orange tip in place. Next, the pair of pliers will be used to gently pry the tip off of the gun barrel, and lastly the screwdriver will be used to attach the replacement tip.

Safety Considerations

When removing an orange tip from an airsoft gun, it is important to remember that it is illegal in many countries and states to remove the orange tip without permission from the law. It is also important to remember that the replacement tip must be just as bright as the original in order to comply with the law. It is also important to be careful when removing the orange tip, as it is easy to damage the gun barrel with the pliers, or to loose the screws that hold the barrel in place.

Final Thoughts

Removing the orange tip from an airsoft gun can be a simple process, provided one knows how to do it properly. It is important to remember to have the proper safety considerations in mind when doing so, as many countries and states have laws in place to protect consumers from such activities. With the right tools and a bit of knowledge on the process, it is easy to remove the orange tip from an airsoft gun and replace it with a new tip.
