Anyone try the new iwata cheap line of guns?
 
Saw in my last summit mag they are offering an iwata economy line of guns for about $100/each for those that don't want to spend the $400.


Any reviews?

I tried an "Air Gunsa" out because I needed a primer/sealer gun. I don't remember the model number because I returned it a few days later and bought an LPH440. The difference is like night and day.

Now that I know what good spray guns are like, there is no going back to the cheap stuff.

Is air gunsa made by iwata?

NO!

But they are sold through Iwata as an inexpensive alternative.

Air Gunsa is made in Italy, and is NOTHING like an Iwata gun at all. I see sellers out there representing Air Gunsa part numbers (like AZ3HV2, for example) as Anest Iwata guns. THEY ARE NOT!

In my opinion, the Air Gunsa I tried was poorly made, and sprayed even worse than my old Sharpe SGF.

As far as I have seen, the least expensive Iwata gun that is out there and readily available is the LPH440. It is designed as a primer gun, but the one I have also shoots sealer and even single stage fairly well.
