Evening, first of all, I have looked at the previous postings, and almost all are looking at compressor driven guns. I have a Fuji 4 stage HVLP compressor, 1 gal pot, and all of the hoses, etc. Everything except the ever important gun. After looking around I’ve narrowed my search to

and C A Technologies

Thanks

Anyone have experience with any of these guns? I’d like to stay below $200, but would consider crossing that line for a great deal on a Fuji, etc. Any other gun recommendations are welcome too. Couldn’t determine if the Harbor Freight guns will work with the turbine or not. Anyone know?

I would buy the Fuji it is a great gun. I just reviewed this gun on my site. I have used it for a few years and I use it at least every week I don’t have a gallon pot but I think the Fuji Gun is as good as any on the market.

Great review. Was it the regular XPC gun? I looked at the new one that swivels and can be top or bottom fed, it”s nice, but still a little painful on the $$.
Anyone know if the HF compressor guns can be used on a turbine?

“Amazon has the same stuff at the best price”.

Yes, but I prefer to pick up the phone and talk to Jeff before, during and after I’ve purchase equipment from Him.

Analogy: I don’t go to the expert camera shop in town asking a lot of question and then drive over to Costco and buy the product there because it cost a little less. If a guy will spend time with me educating and helping me with the technical stuff I’ll buy from even if it cost a bit more. I think it’s the ethical thing to do.

I might do the same thing but the writer is looking for the best price. And we are talking spray guns not which lens is best for a certain job this is straight forward they offer 2 models which ever brand he does buy needs to be for a turbine unit so it is not the same as getting expert advise and paying 20 percent more.

Thanks for the info thedude. AlaskaGuy, I agree and prefer local independent shops/ merchants over internet or bigbox guys. There are times that $$ dictate my choices, and times that the need for superb info and customer service win. It all varies.
Anyway, if anyone has a thought about turbine guns, let me know
Thanks
