I originally used a spray but I found it was waaaay to easy to either miss the inside of cracks and corners or, when attempting to reach those hard-to-reach parts, too easy to get too much paint on the not-so-hard-to-reach parts around the hard-to-reach-part. I ended up using a brush to remove or spread around the paint I just sprayed on. So I just switched to a paint-on primer so I could control the paint better since I was doing it anyway.


I found I got better control off those trigger assemblies for spraypaints... But if that method works for you, awesome. I just never really had luck with brush-on primer. Especially that crap GW made, the 'Imperial Primer'...
