New To Painting

I could use some help to pick out a paint gun. Its been driving me nuts trying to figure it out myself. I am dead set on a HVLP and pretty sure I want a devilbiss. I don't want to spend more than $300 on one. It does not need to look perfect but I don't want any runs or orange peel. I also don't want a gun with plastic parts. Must be gravity feed and can spray unside-down. I will for the most part only be spraying base/clear old coke/pepsi drink machines. I may one day spray a car but just one or two. I have been looking at the Blue Finishline 3, FLG 691, and the DeVILBISS GTI-620G Millennium. I do have a question about the GTI-620G. The lid says it is push on and I read somewhere that they were disposable. Is this true? I don't really want one that I will need to keep buying lids for. Any help will be appreciated.

I went ahead and just bought a GFG-670 Plus. I know its not a HVLP but everyone says it is a good gun and I got it new in box with a cleaning kit for $250. Not that it matters now but air is not an issue trust me. I have two tanks one is 100 gallons and the other 75 gallons for a total of 175 with 125psi. I dont remember the HP but I know it is at least 4HP. If my math is right if I am to paint a car it might cycle one time. Thanks for the concern & help though.
