Just price a clean used IWATA on E-bay.

With a gallon of paint costing more than even the pro guns you can quickly spend the difference in price between the cheapie and the pro gun and watch it drift toward the vent fan but in the end you will still have just the cheap gun. Point being that by the time you do just a few jobs with the pro models you will save enough to make them actually cheaper to own plus a lot easier to get that slick finish, the gun really is a bad place to pinch pennies. I still use my HF guns for some things and would not want to be without them because they do have their place but I do not use them for quality BC/CC materials anymore, except for very small jobs, and I truly feel my IWATA has saved me money instead of being a spendy luxury. I am not a pro and I only do this on a hobby level and IMO these guns (the IWATA, Sata, etc) are still cheaper to own after only a few jobs, just something to think about.
I completely agree. I own two HF purple guns and use them to shoot primer. I bought an Iwata LPH400 for top coats. The amount of product that a good HVLP gun saves you is amazing. Painting one car might not justify a pro gun, but painting two or more, the HVLP will pay for itself imo.

I would like to find a cheap gun for primer that is truly HVLP, if such a gun exists. To get my HF guns to shoot right they take alot of air, like 45-50, and I would guess they nearly use twice the amount of product for the same size area painted.

Ok, I found this thread when searching LVLP guns. I will admit I did not read the whole thread, but thought this was interesting. I just bought this gun, the Sprayit 33000 and is looks alot like the gun discussed.
Amazon.com: SPRAYIT SP-33000 Lvlp Gravity Feed Spray Gun: Home Improvement Amazon.com: SPRAYIT SP-33000 Lvlp Gravity Feed Spray Gun: Home Improvement
I actually got it for 35.00 shipped from Wayfair a couple months ago. I have not tried it yet so have no idea how it works.

It appears to be the same gun Summit Racing is selling for 65.00
Summit Racing® LVLP Spray Guns - SummitRacing.com

Also the same gun as the Asturo R500 for $130.00
Paint Sprayers Plus Asturo AOM R500 Series HVLP Spray Gun Auto/Wood

Same China supplier as the one discussed in this thread
Lvlp Spray Gun (RP8615/R500) - China Lvip Spray Gun,Spray Gun

If you look close they all have R-500 in the upper corner of the gun and have the same basic specs.

The cool thing about the Sprayit one is that you can get different tips from Amazon for 18.00 plus shipping


Any thoughts or experience w/these guns?
