You can pay $500 for a name brand gun and get a $250 paint job with it. You can also pay $49 for a Harbor Freight gun and get a great paint job from it. It is all in how you adjust it and use it. I am getting great results with my Harbor Freight HVLP gun. If you are getting splatters and insane overspray, then you are doing something seriously wrong. I suggest that before you lay out $400-$500 on a high quality gun, learn how to get the cheap one adjusted properly. Sata, Devilbiss, Binks just to name a few are great guns that can be had for less than $500.
