What do you recommend?

Hi all,

I have been shooting with my old conventional siphon feed gun. I thought I would like to move up a bit. I borrowed my buddy's Sharpe "Cobalt" HVLP gravity feed gun and wow, what I difference... My buddy uses it for everything (filler primer, sealer, bc/cc... everything). I have spent the last couple of months reading everyone's post on the seemingly endless number of guns out there. I am down to this.... Being on a budget I am looking at around $150.00 range of gun. I like the Sharpe Cobalt gun I mentioned earlier, I was thinking of buying one of those and get a 1.4mm and 2.3mm tip. but I started thinking... The finex guns by Sharpe are 1/2 the price, I could essentially get two guns one dedicated bc/cc with a tip to match and one dedicated primer gun with tip to match. I was undecided between what to do until I started to read all of the posts, which has given me even more indecision. With the Harbor Freight guns, the devillbis (sp) and the Iwata copy etc. What do you guy's think? I really like how the Cobalt performed, do they all perform the same? From what I've read it looks as though some just out perform others.

This is my take. I have two of the HF guns. They spray well and will serve you well. I recently purchased two guns off Ebay from the Tuul Shed. They are the same knockoffs that HF sells, just a different color.
