Hey guys I'm looking at purchasing either the purple gun or the "pro" kit with the two guns, looks like every one is having good results witj them, what is the minimum compressor stats you would need for these guns, obviously I'm working on a fairly tight budget here, I have been searching CL for a used compressor and looking into renting, a place out here in NorCal by me rents a compressor for $60/day it only puts out 15cfm at 100 psi, would this be enough, what is the minimum that would work for these guns so I know what to be looking for, thanks guys

It depends on what you're doing. I was able to spray my bug in 3 sessions. Fenders, then the deck lid and hood, and then the car body. Although my bug is a small car. I used a 33 gallon 1 1/2 hp compressor. Ran it at 45 psi the whole time.

15 cfm @ 100 psi is more than enough compressor. Don't forget to use a regulator and filter.

Cool, thanks, what do you think the minimum stats are that would run these guns with out problems in case I find one to buy instead of rent?

Guns vary , but the cfm requirement has always been listed on the packaging of the guns that I have bought. The compressors I have looked at used to have the cfm output at various pressures listed as well so it should make it relatively easy to match a compressor to the spray gun. But I would definitely get a compressor with enough output to run DA sander . On any given compressor the cfm output will go down as the pressure increases. Hope this helps...Allan

Anyone know if the HF purple gun 47061 is one of the good ones, or the gravity only gun to be avoided? It is on sale right now for $10 with a coupon.

The info I have is the 66222 is the good one, the H827 is the bad one, but nothing on the 47061.

I use the 47061, decent gun but it is not HVLP. I use it and the Campbell Hausfeld version from Walmart. There identical with interchangable parts.. Best part is, they don't take much compressor to keep up. 67181 is the new cross number for the 47016, tho the guns are the same. IIRC the 66222 is the new cross for the 43430 gun, but I'm not sure there 100% identical

Some new info on the Harbor Freight purple guns, but if anything it just confuses the issue. From reaserch here and other places it's been said that the gun stamped H827W is not HVLP, and not the gun you want. The 66222 gun that comes with the regulator, is the good gun. It has been said that it has HVLP stamped onto the handle.

Well, I just got back from my local HF today and here is what I found: The "gravity feed" 47061 gun has H827W stamped on it. Problem is, so does the 66222 gun! Neither one has HVLP stamped anywhere on it. I opened several boxes of each, and they were all like this. The only difference I could find is that the 47061 gun has 50-70psi stamped on the handle, and the 66222 has 45psi 3bar stamped on the handle. The 66222 gun also has gold knobs, the 47061's are silver. THe 47061 gun has a 1.5 tip, the 66222 has a 1.4.

I don't know if this means that the "good" HF purple gun is now the same as the super cheap one, or not. Does anyone have any insight on this?

The 47061's were on sale with coupon for $9.99, so I bought two anyway. It's worth the risk for ten bucks. I won't be spraying for a month or so, and I'm a newbie anyway so I don't know how much of a help my review will be.

It's all marketing. Use the cheap gun it works. Buy the air regulator seperate. Use the gun a few times and when it starts to slow down toss it.

they aren't bad primer guns. I'd get nothing under a 1.5 tip though. Rarely see a 1.8-2.0 tip and that's too bad.

If you are painting a car with the cheap gun start with a brand new one. You can paint a car with it no problem. Some of the cheap guns last longer and some don't last as long. Sometimes you get a good one. You can spray metalics perfect with one of those guns. I spray the base coat somewhere around 25-27 psi. I crank the pressure up to about 45 psi for the clear.
