I have a Fuji Q4 I bought years ago. It’s a great performer. The gun is pretty old school compared to all of the fancy knobs I see today, but I know how to get results from it.

I’d like to get another gun. Probably gravity feed. I see bleeder/non-bleeder. I know what that means. My gun is a bleeder and blows everything around when the turbine is on.

My question is, can I use a non bleed gun with the Q4? I have a support ticket open with Fuji, but in the mean time, if some LJers could educate me, I’d be grateful.

I have the Super 4 Gold bought about 4 years ago, which I think is essentially a noisier version of the Q4. I use it with 2 non bleeder guns, an XPC gravity and an XPC bottom feeder. Works fine. That said, Fuji CS is excellent and they will get back to you with their answer.

Thanks Fred. I found instructions on their web site for modifying my Q4 to use non bleeder guns. It just involves drilling a bleeder hole in the turbine case. Looks pretty simple.

Here is the link for posterity:
