Was thinking of buying a gravity feed spray gun for small projects in the shop. I have a large air pressure spray gun but is hard to use on small projects. Any recommendations on gravity feed spray guns.

Thanks,
TomRetired

I’ve been happy with my small HVLP gravity feed Kobalt from Lowes.

I guess Lowes doesn’t sell them anymore but this is the one I have.

I was looking at the HVLP’s at lowes, then spotted the Graco HVLP stand-alone for $10 more ($99). I just started using it, so, I don’t have an opinion until I figure out how to get a finish like the pro unit I’m used to using.

I have used a Harbor Freight HVLP gun with success. You can spend more money, but I wouldn’t. Wait until they go on sale & also find a 20% coupon. You should be able to get one for about $30.
