spray guns HVLP or Std

Hi

New here and my first post, is there a way to tell apart a std Gravity (?) spray gun and a HVLP one. Apart from using a nozzle guage to tell the pressure at the ..well nozzle..

I thought that HVLP guns had an adjusting screw below the handle as the inlet pressure needs to be controlled to acheive 10psi approx at the nozzle, where as normal (std) guns were straight through ie 70 psi in, 70 psi out.=, and didn't have one

I could be wrong (probably am) but thought i'd ask.

Thanks

Rich
