Never again...that is my feeling regarding doing business with spray gun world. I too wish I would have been aware of all the problems other folks had encountered with them.

Mike phoned me after my initial order (seemed odd at the time) to up-sale me to another gun and to let me know that the gun I ordered had a 2 week lead time.
After changing my order to a nicer and pricier gun (that was 'in stock') it took another month or so to receive it, although shipping distance was only about 100 miles.

Every time I e-mailed, they had a new excuse as to why i had not received my order, which in the end I found was the ONLY thing they do well.
The gun I received was not in the original factory box, nor did it include the owners manual. The gun had what appeared to be water spots on it, as if it had been used and cleaned.

They still to this day, owe me a digital regulator, which of course I have already heard yet more (lame) excuses as to why.

I recently needed a trim gun, so I ordered one (same brand as the other) from another company on the net and received it in 2 days...in a factory box WITH an owners manual.

Bottom line, if you want to keep your sanity, DO NOT BUY FROM SPRAY GUN WORLD! , if you are a masochist an enjoy getting jerked around and don't need your gun for months, then Spray Gun World is the place.

Im sorry to hear your going through this. I know how you feel, we are a family of 4 where only my husband works, he wanted a spray gun from spray gun world for christmas this year (the first year we have ever bought each other presents) so I ordered it on the 14th of november. It has been all but a month and still no gun. I am hopeful as other people have said they have gotten theirs . Just way after they ordered it. Although you spent $400 and I only spent $170 I plan to talk to my credit card company if I do not get a response to my last email. I would be tweaking if I were you!! My advice, If you do not receive it soon or answers from them, talk to your bank, have the order canceled to get your money back, than save a little more and buy somewhere else :-(

you wouldnt happen to have that phone number he called you from would he? he emailed me to try to sell me "a better gun" after I ordered. I did not buy the "better" gun and have not heard anything since.. except after an email asking when my gun was to be here, they said dec. 6th it is now the 12th and still no gun. Almost a month after I ordered..

For anyone thinking of buying from spray gun world. I am finally expected to get my spray gun on fri. 14th, 1 month after I ordered, will find out then if it was worth the wait. To let you know, they are now shipping from Coating Atomization Technologies Llc in Broomfield, CO (at least thats where my tracking number tells me) I am not sure yet if I recommend them. I would say, do not expect your package immediately as appearently not getting it for a long time happens often :-/

Spray Gun World un to their old tricks

My experiences are the same as the others. Products ordered, Credit card billed, reciept sent. Then a long wait with no way to contact this company. If you are in the same boat as I am. Let people know, as many as you can.
Even the phone number on the credit card bill is not a way to contact these people. If you have just purchased from this company and ran across this post, dispute the charge ASAP. I hated that things turned out this way, all i wanted was a spray gun, instead I got introduced to the seedy underbelly of internet commerce. Buyer Beware

SprayGunWorld is a Scam,Mike, professor spray,AOM Spray,Asturo Spray

Hello,

Stay away from this guy, i was just ripped off by Mike Professor Spray with spraygunworld.com ! This man is a straight theif. I had ordered one Chinese gun, and just like the others have reported, he emails me claiming he doesn't have the gun, but could offer me an Italian made 3 year warranty gun for double the price and I took the hook !

I called AOM spray in NM Home - Asturo HVLP spray guns, Air assisted airless pumps, and more , and let them know I hadn't recieved my Aluminum Cup nor the 2nd spray setup. Asturo Low Air Spray Gun They informed me that they knew who mike of spraygunworld was, had his phone,gave me professor Mikes number, but said he's located in California, so give it some time before i call him. I research the number and find it's another NewMexico number? ...WTF ?

So, i know 100% for sure that at the least, AOM Spray,Asturo guns is aware of Mike the Professor at Spraygunworld are all one in the same scam, and probably worse, my expensive new gun is most likely a Chinese hunk of junk.

I had called,emailed and finally threatened to report this guy for being a theif, which I Did.

This man and his scams has been turned in to the New Mexico attorney generals office as well as the NY attorney general. New Mexico told me that they have many active complaints coming from spraygunworld, but just recently have begun to connect the dots with his other scams.

You are going down Mike Professor Spray!

PS: feel free to comment !
Thanks

Screwed by Spraygunworld.com

Wish I had found this thread two months ago! My story is the same as everyone else here. Placed an order more than two months ago for an Asturo mini kit. My credit card was charged right away. Kind of knew I'd been screwed when two weeks later nothing had shown up. Sent a number of e-mails and finally got an answer from Mike Davis stating "It typically takes 3-4 weeks to CA. You should have your item at the end of the month." I've had a number of parts and tools shipped to me from the US and it has never taken that long. Month-end came and went and after a lot more unanswered messages Mike sent this response "The hold up is your pps system they are due in this week. We have the guns. So one more week." That was three weeks ago, still no product, no refund that I have repeatedly asked for, no answer to any of my messages.

I've reported this to my credit card company, hoping I'll get a refund as I do have purchase insurance. Also sent a couple of notes to Asturo looking for a different retailer but they don't respond either. So I've ordered an Iwata LPH-80 from a vendor on the west coast I've dealt with before.

Moral of the story: either steer clear of Spraygunworld.com or just burn your money - at least you'll be able to enjoy the flames.

Update

So two more weeks have gone by, still no spray guns and no refund. Mike wouldn't respond to any of my e-mail until today when I got this:

"Your order is processed. Only the liner system we are waiting for. Will follow up with an ETA. The order is so old the computer wont allow us to refund anymore So will get in the mail."

Same excuse he gave five weeks ago but now the order is too old to issue a refund? That would be funny if it wasn't my $400. Also pretty sure the only reason I got a response is because I sent Asturo an email to let them know the level of customer service their reseller provides.

2 1/2 months and counting. Take my advice and steer clear of this one.

Has anyone gotten any product out of spray gun world? I filed a fraud complaint with my credit card. I never got one reply from SGW. They never called to see why I canceled the transaction. I'm just glad I did

My credit card company investigated and didn't have any more success getting Spray Gun World to communicate than I did so they reversed the charge.

Coincidentally three days later my card was hit with over $4000 in fraudulent charges and I had to cancel the card.

It's all good now. Well, I still need a spray gun...

Oh my God... some people are disgusting. I almost bought a kit from him, because I was having trouble finding parts for the trusty Sharpe Platinum I have. He almost talked me into an Astro kit (not Asturo). Thank God a service kit popped up on E-Bay for $50 that same week LOL I thought it was expensive, but I love the Sharpe and that $50 ought to get me to the point Im either dead or they've outlawed painting at home all together.

Good Luck! And keep us posted.
