HVLP compared to a gravity spray gun.

I have two spray guns. One is a HVLP and the other is a gravity feed but not HVLP. I have cleaned both guns and adjusted the volume and fan pattern all the way, out on both guns. I have adjusted the air pressure at the gun at 40 pounds on both guns. (Recomendation on both guns from factory) The HVLP gun sprays much less paint than the gravity gun almost to the point of dry spraying.

Is it normal with all adjustments and air pressure being the same for an HVLP gun to spray less paint than a gravity gun?
