Orange muzzle device on REAL guns?

As most of us know the law requires that the muzzle of toy guns and Air-Soft replicas be painted bright orange. For example, I have a very realistic looking Thompson SMG replica but the Cutts compensator is painted bright orange.

What if I painted the muzzle device of my AR-15 day glow orange? That would make it look like a toy or an Air Soft replica to a casual observer. (like the state trooper who pulls me over) Is there any law against painting part of your gun orange?

Good memory Geckgo!

I think this one is good enough to bring up again after all this time.

Several years ago I toyed with the idea of having a Glock 17 painted / powder coated "blue gun" colour. The reasons why I didn't were numerous and many of them can be read in the thread Geckgo linked.

I'm fairly certain this is illegal in CA...possibly a few other states too.

Just off the top of my head, I'm thinking this may fall under disguised weapons, which... depending on you local laws...could be a felony

I'm sorry, but the contents of this discussion just simply are not within the realm of The High Road.

There are many and varied methods for discreetly transporting a rifle that don't involve trying to pass it off as a child's toy. I would strongly suggest that if you're concerned with transporting a gun of any sort that you are much better off purchasing a proper case for it, rather than going to great lengths to attempt to disingenuously disguise the gun as something that it is not.
