Keep in mind I’m not an expert and have only ever used one spray gun but….I purchased a Wagner hvlp (the double duty one) about a year ago for around $90 and have never had a single problem out of it. I have used both latex and oil paint, and also applied polycrylic with it. I always clean the crap out of it after each use and can’t be more pleased with how simple it is.

Also if it is helpful, Family Handyman wrote a whole article about the different hvlp on the market and their opinion of the good and bad….here is it if you care to read it.

Edit: I just looked at the article and it looks like they didn’t include all of the guns they reviewed in the actual magazine, so they don’t go into the breakdown of any hvlp over $100 so it probably is not going to be that useful.
