i use a sata nr 2000 hvlp gun almost everyday and im very pleased with it . i've also owned a devilbiss gti hvlp and i liked it too , i have used a binks m 1 g also and had good results. but i prefer the sata over all. the sata is made in germany though . take a look in the eastwoods catalog they offer all three guns and have a decent price on them .but it is up to you on what you want to spend .( you get what you pay for ) good luck and happy shopping

Probably no spray gun is made in the USA today. I will tell you this, when a buddy of mine helped me repaint the top and hood of my truck he brought over his expensive Sata. We put on the color coats with it and then tried to use it on the clear. It would not break up the clear good enough to lay a smooth coat on. We switched to my Harbor Freight HVLP gun and it work flawless with the clear.

I have since used the HF gun on the frame of my 34 and it performed exceptional again. Do not be fooled by the price of this gun, you owe it to yourself to at least try it.

just because its not made in the states, doesnt mean its poor quality, a good example is the chineese made HVLP gun sold by harbour freight, SATA is german (like mercedes, bmw, heckler and koch, and many other top notch products) my favorite paint gun is Iwata, italian made high end product (like binelli, ferarri, SMEG and other) if you are willing to spend the money id go for an Iwata 400, and a SATA respirator. if not then harbou freight is also top notch for the price.

I just recently purchased a Devilbiss Finishline III gravity feed hvlp off ebay for just under a $100. It works great. I also bought one of the HF hvlp gravity feed guns (purple body) on sale for $39 including the regulator and for the price is a nice gun.
