Question Harbor Freight guns

Hey guys I've seen some posts recommending the
harbor freight HVLP Model 43430. It's on sale for 39.00
by the way. But what about the HVLP model 90977 ? It has a
lower cfm rating. What do you think ? Also I'm a beginner
so I would be learning with these guns.

Thanks for your input.

They are both fine guns and will give you excellent results if you take the time to learn them. A lot of bang for the buck IMO.

I have the 43430 gun. I am also a beginner painter. So far I painted a motorcyle tank, headlight, etc. I was very pleased with the quality of the gun and its ease of use.

It is hard to screw up a paint job using this gun.

However, this gun is an AIR HOG!! Don't plan on spraying a full car with a 20 or 30gallon air compressor tank. You are going to at least need a 60 gallon tank with a minimum of 10cfm to run this gun long enough for a full vehicle paint job.

I have always used a 7902 2qt but recently bought a 43430. Love them both! Best value around, get one or two.

I've got that one plus the detail gun. I haven't tried the detail gun yet, but if it works as well as the big one, great. I don't think they're as big an air hog as my Devilbiss Finishline III.
Also, does anyone know where to buy different size tips for the model 43430?
thanks

What tip comes with the 430?
btw- It looks like they offer a 1.3 and 2.2 at the bottom of the page for the 430.

I wld ALSO like to hear from those who have purchased and used the 977, isit possible to almost cut the required cfm in half??? enquiring minds want to know!

I just received my 719 (detail gun) and I gotta tell ya that lil ***** looks pretty well built, I cant wait to give her a try!

ANYONE who owns this gun (719) wld you please gimme an approximate baseline' set up in revs for each dial???

TIA!

1.4 comes with the gun. yes they offer a 1.3 and 2.2.

I would also like some info on the other gun. It is a brand new piece though, it came out like 2 months back. So I doubt that many people have tried it out yet.
