They do - but trying to find one is a study in futility.

The existing 1.5 should work just fine tho if you play around with inlet pressure and paint controls.

A note - the "regulator" that came with the gun - it isn't!! It's a variable restrictor that actually restricts the volume of air passing through the gun. I set mine at the wall and check with this gadget:

then check pressure at the gun with this removable gauge set up:

And with my Iwata, don't have a problem with 1/4" fittings on my 1/2" air line
