Paint gun and compressor info

I have a paint gun from my Father in Law, Devilbiss md # SGA 570. I would like to get the specs for this gun. If anyone owns one, how it paints news paint. I am also buying either a 1) 5 HP 20 Gal compressor rated at 40psi-6.6, 90 psi-5.8 Cambell H brand twin cyl $569.00 CDN
2) 5HP 26 gal rated 40-6.9, 90-5.5 Campbell H brand oilless direct drive $349.00 CDN
3) 6HP 20 gal rated 40-7.7,90-6 - Coleman produce direct drive$ 399.00 CDN

I had an old CH and it worked OK. What would recommend for an over all compressor, ie paint and basic garage work.
Thanks Dave

With this type of gun you will need a compressor that can put out about 6-10cfm at 40psi at 100% duty cycle. None of the compressors you mentioned will work very long, unless you are just spraying small parts. If you decide to spray a whole car, you will need something much bigger.
