This gun here is my current primer gun right now.....
http://www.astrotools.com/default.aspx?toolsnum=QUL120& It is a 2.0 tip gun and I have had it for a couple years now and really like it. Probally the best gun I have used under $200.
You can find it here for $90 http://www.autobodytoolmart.com/econ...uns-c-560.aspx
Wanna get a couple guns for your work? Devilbiss makes some nice Starting Line guns and sets.
This particular set is one I feel is perfect for the beginner to learn on while on a budget.
You get a 1.3 tip gun for your base/clears and a 1.8 tip gun for the primers.
This gun is for the filler primers. A 2.2 and a 1.8 tip are included with this gun....
http://www.eastwood.com/devilbiss-fi...2-2mm-tip.html Probally my next primer gun.
There are alot more options out there, but from experience, these work. I started off cheap, figured I would save some bucks and order a 2.0 tip gun off egay for $20. It worked for $20, but sprayed very inconsistantly and leaked bad. After 2 weeks, I threw it against the wall. My next gun I got on clearance for $60 I think. 1.7 tip and worked alot better. But this is when I realized Slick Sand really needs a larger tip to flow properly. This gun died when I mixed some primer too hot and it kicked and cured in the gun before I managed to get it cleaned out. Once that happens, trash. Since it wouldn't flow well, it took longer to soray it out which led to the primer being in the gun too long.
Learn from my mistakes. Even under $100, my current gun is damn good. But still considered a cheap gun by professional standards.
The bitter after-taste of a poor quality job will last far longer than
the sweetness of that cheap price!
