Can the plastic on an airsoft gun be lasered...I've done abs calculators and it worked fine.
Does anyone have any setting suggestions for lasering and color filling it?

I ran some sample CO2 engraving for another SMC member using many different settings. All I could achieve was depth with slight discoloration leaning towards brown. An Nd:YAG may give better results. Color filling will be required.

I agree that color filling will be required. In my experience, I applied masking tape over the area and lasered over it then sprayed it with Krylon Fusion before removing the tape.
