devilbiss finishline or sharpe finex?

Hey guys,

Quick question, I can pick up a set of DeVilbiss finishline HVLP guns for the same price as a sharpe finex. (my friend can get me cost as he works for napa). Finex is $97cdn while the Finishline is $105cdn

Which gun(s) is the best? I'll be using it for painting small things. I realize that my compressor will be running alot as its small (20gal, 7.4@40psi, 5.7@90psi), but i wont be painting a whole car, ect.. so i can somewhat live with it.

Should I end up getting the Finishline kit (includes 2 guns w/ 1.4 and 1.8) or get the Finex and get a larger tip/needle set for primer?



Finishline Kit Contains:

NOTE: I heard that there are no rebuild parts are available for this gun. Is this a major thing that I need to worry about? I would only be using it a few times per year. Hopefully these guns are reliable.
