Another HF6622 question & Eastwood Concours?

Thanks to all the members who welcomed me to the site this week! This is a friendly AND knowledgeable site.

3 Questions....
Just bought an HF6622 HVLP for less than $25 with coupons. I'm new to HVLP (I still have my old Binks 7 in on the shelf) and figured the 66222 at 25 bucks would be a good intro before moving up. Before trying it out I figured I would learn about it's innards BEFORE figuring how to disassemble while the paint was drying. The Air Cap of course, came off easily, but the Fluid Nozzle underneath was unbelievably tight. I thought I would damage it getting it off ( I even wondered for an instant if it was opposite thread!). Eventually I was able to get it off but I cannot get the Air Ring underneath it off. Logically, it unscrews using the hex allen wrench through the center. It just will not come off and I really, REALLY tried using a real wrench instead of the combo tool included. It budged slightly, but then just would not move. It is so tight it seems as if someone probably used an “impact gun” to tighten the fluid nozzle which further tightened the Air Ring underneath. My question is....the Air Ring DOES unscrew - right?

2nd question....
Since the 66222 is probably a copy of another gun, does anybody know if you can get different sized nozzles for it?

3rd question....
Has anybody tried the Eastwood Concours gun? It seems reasonably priced and at 4 CFM @ 29 PSI, I can still use my 5HP compressor which has served me faithfully for more years than I want to count.

Cant really help you out except with this
The 66222 is the alternate SKU for the 43430, its a newer version, almost the same guns but different vendors, kinda confusing

Thanks greenmoonshine for the link to the setup/adjustments! Valuable as a starting point.

I've done a bit of detective work and found that the 66222 (43430) MAY be the knock off of PorterCable's PSH1? Not 100% sure though.

PC does offer a 2.0mm nozzle and a metal cup (and standard replacement parts for their PSH1) which, of course, MAY fit the 66222/43430.

If I get around to ordering the 2.0 nozzle, and it fits, I'll post a reply.

I think the Eastwood Concours gun is made by Asturo (not Astro! which are great guns for the money). I have looked at Asturo guns on the web beore and have been intrigued by them but have gotten little feedback on them. They are sold by spraygunworld I think and made in Italy. From their description, they look like great guns, especially the cfm usage for home painters, but I have never heard anybody that has actually used them, talk about them.

I think spraygunworld sells some Asturo guns that are higher end than the Eastwood one. Eastwood is great and convenient, but everything they sell, and everything they put their name on, is made by somebody else and can be had cheaper if you find another vendor.
