Hi dan,

By skinning, Im assuming you mean creating a unique UV map so you can apply a texture onto the object.

Since you said it was a silencer, I think giving it a Cylindrical Texture projection will be a good way to start. Then edit it in the Texture Editor. You can stamp out an image from there which can serve as your guide in Photoshop.

Hope this helped...
