What color to paint my type 96?

I got an l96 that I am just now starting to put mods into. I also want to paint it. It is currently black, and of course, that sticks out like a sore thumb.

I am not sure whether I want to paint it one color or have it in some sort of camo pattern. I REALLY REALLY REALLY like the thought of making it dual toned. I want to paint the stock of the gun asparagus green and leave the butt plate, scope, bolt assembly and barrel black

What do you guys think? Any color suggestions? Also, after I paint the gun, what type of coating to I have to put on top of the paint, if any?

Go to your local hobby lobby and look for the Testors enamel airbrush camo kit, it has 5 different colors, the airbrush, and some stencils like tiger stripe and leaves for a whopping $30, and you can easily find 40% off coupons to aid with the cost. And pick up some flat or matte clear coat as well. Simple enough to do, and very cost effective because it's reusable if you clean it right.
