I don't know if I will paint the optics and such.
Why not? It won't hurt the optics or the light. Just make sure you have something to protect the lenses from overspray.
Get some paint on that optic and light and BUIS man.
Tape up all your adjustment indicators on the BUIS and hit it lightly with your base color which seems to be tan.
Take masking tape only slightly larger then the circumference of the Aimpoint. Attach the tape flat across the front and rear bezels as not to affect your lenses. Ensure a good seal all the way round and dust it as well.
Same bezel trick with the lights lens. No real need to tape off the pressure switch area if factory plug is in tact. I will suggest a light scuffing on the plastic tail cap in order to promote paint adhesion. It likes to flake off from that area of those lights.
Light dusting on all of it.
Nail polish remover and break cleaner on a rag rubber over common rattle can paint will safely easily remove it. Use caution near glass and plastics with such a method.
Same can be done on the rifle itself.
