I tried to paint some of them black but it didn't work out. Looked good for a while but started to rub off around the edges. Picked up 3 of these for a couple of bucks a piece and the other were on some mags that came with a 17 I bought from a buddy. Here's how I did it. Bought some Ritz black liquid dye for $2.96 and an old pan for $2.12 at the flea market. Put the +2's in the pan, poured in the entire bottle of dye, added just about the same amount of hot water from the faucet and stirred. Place the pan over low heat, just steam no bubbles for one hour, stirring occasionally. Checked one and nothing rubbed off but I let them go for another half hour. Rinsed them under cold water and this is what I got. I'm happy with the results. Try it if you have some plastic you want to change the color of. Thanks for looking.
