Moedog07 I just bought the AP Europro 1.3 and an Evo4014. Both look like fine guns. The workmanship looks good in both. I haven't used either yet.

I'v spraded with a lot of guns from $1200.00 sata jet's to a $9.00 harbor friaght. I'v been spraying for 30 years so I can use any gun.But to answer your quest the asto can give you a nice finnish.Just make shure you clean every time.take your time check out sum vid's on youtube. Good luck!

94 turbo i have a finex 300, i use for sealer but it isnt that great for base or clear, ive found that most cheap guns require frequent tip cleaning. on a complete you should clean the air cap every refill. my graco delta xt and sata jet 90 will spray for 2 hours without cleaning .a used devilbiss gti or an old binks bbr would be alot better choice, just my opinion

DougMN I have an evo 4018, it sprays ok when you start spraying primer but the small holes in the air cap get plugged up from the overspray. The fluid nozzle needs teflon tape on the threads or it will suck air causing surging. I would not buy another one.

tech69 I have a Finex 3000 and it's a great sturdy little gun for priming. I hear there's an astro gun out there that's also good for priming but has little overspray. Sounds awesome but can't vouch for it personally. I have heard people complain about parts for the finex but it has held up pretty good for me and was once used everyday at a shop. I dog my primer guns too. It gets percolated 90% of the time and then gets a complete cleaning once in a while. No complaints here.

35WINDOW I am an Astro user, and for me it works well (although it won't be mistaken for an Iwata LP anytime soon)-I use the EVO 4014 (1.4 tip), and it works well for what I am doing (I'm just a hobbiest). Everything I've done with it has been solid Colors, so I can't say how well it will work with Metallics-YMMV-

If you are shooting a Metallic I would suggest that you step up to an Iwata or a Sata-the loss of Materials might easily pay for it-
