When you go look at them, bring some material with you so you can try them. They are only worth it if the work properly and work for the way you paint. Check for balance in your hand, if they don't feel like they are balanced you are going to regret getting them after your first complete. Everybody paints differently and every gun works differently, check the needles, role them on a flat surface, look for a warble or a bend in the needle. Check the air cap, make sure that the previous owner hasn't dropped then and distorted the air cap. Check both the inside and outside of the gun for being clean, that will tell you if the guy looked after them.

If all checks out and you feel comfortable painting with them, make him an offer.

The first version of the sata rp is a great gun,I have been using one for 13 years .Ray is bang on,make sure that the fluid tip is round also,if any of the parts are damaged you have to buy a nozzle set(air cap,fluid needle,fluid tip) as sata sells them in a matched set.The nozzle set alone is $250 for that gun so keep that in mind as it might not be worth the asking price.The rp's are for the guys who like to spray fast so be prepared to change your style.IMO the first gen rp sprays nicer than the 3000 but similar to the 4000.You can also check out the devilbiss tekna or tekna prolite,these guns come with 3 tip sizes and a digital gauge for a great price.I have used both of these guns everyday for the last couple of years and they perform great.

can't help ya on the 2000 other than to say that all i have heard about them is good. I do have the rp digital and it is an awesome gun, though i don't know how it compares to your previous gun. The price seems great as long as they are in good shape...i would agree with the previous posts..be sure you try them out! Otherwise, i say buy them and don't look back...be careful with the rp's if you've never sprayed one...they are about the fastest guns around and will hose on the material compared to most! I will say this...if all i did was spray base with my satas, they would be worth every penny. I used to have alot of trouble with metallics with the cheaper guns (almost inevitable streaks and mottling). With the sata's...metallics, pearls and candies are a walk in the park...atleast for me. And hey, if ya get'm and hate'm...put them one ebay and make a few bucks or sell'm to a member here for the price plus shipping...i'd go $300 on those two guns if there in good shape! Let us know how it works out...

That question will vary from person to person...each painter will point you to the gun he chooses. I can assure you of this...any sata rp or iwata thats factory set-up for clear will give you a top notch finish with the correct technique. The difference between sata and iwata is application speed. All iwatas that i have been around (with the exception of the ne ws400 super nova) are faily slow sprayers. If you prefer slow then go iwata. I personally like to roll with it so i went sata rp. Also, most will agree that the sata rp in any model (rp, 2000rp,3000rp or 4000rp) is the better sata for clear. Sata hvlp guns usually are better base guns although either gun will work fine for base or clear. Then theres the mighty Satajet 90...with the recommended 60 psi input pressure you can lay clear like GLASS... One thing you could do is search youtube for the gun your interested in and watch several videos to get an idea how each gun sprays...thats what i did.

another thing to keep in mind is that several of these guns are only available used so depending on your buying preferences...you maybe able to eliminate all but 2 or 3 right off the bat. Nothing wrong with buying used either, just keep in mind that the sata guns have expensive rebuild/nozzel, needle kits...most are in the 175 to 200 range.

Cut, "preacherman" is dead on the money here, as I've mentioned many times, everybody paints differently and it's the person using the gun that needs to decide what's best for them. The guns that we are talking about are much like paint, they all work, but they all work a little differently and choosing what works best for you ultimately is your choice.

You and I have been talking for quite a while and I feel I've gotten to know you fairly well and how you paint. So, what I can tell you is that I'm confident that the Sata's that you are looking at will be a step up from the FLG's that you had been using...if at all possible, try them, I'm sure you will see a better finish than the FLG's.
