Depends on how involved you are.
Most "first" timer's use a knock off like Harbor's "purple" HVLP gun or an Atlas Sata knock off. Both are good gun's.
If your serious about it.than the "usual" gun's come up. Sata,DeVilbliss,Iwata.

I like Iwata myself (LPH-400),but each to his own.

LOL... Yeah, Everyone has thought this for sure.
Your "Education" is about to begin my friend.

Don't think for a minuet I'm slamming ya. It's a fact of the paint world brother.
The first 1 or 2 generally go OK and you get to thinking "this ain't so tough" That's when Beginners Luck runs out and the real world of paint bite's you square in the a.. We have ALL been there.

If your really looking for a great gun, The Iwatta LPH-400 is one of the BEST.
Several members here will attest to it's ability and is absolutly one of the best clear layer's available. It's NOT an HVLP but a Low Pressure gun. Big difference. Still compliant,but not in the typical HVLP sense as in air hog.

I wish you only the BEST of luck and hang out here and learn from some of the BEST in the business.

I know I have. And I thank you ALL.

The Satajet 90 with a 1.3 tip was my favorite gun for quite awhile. The Iwata LPH-400 with a 1.3 is much better IMO. The Iwata with a 1.4 works well but 1.3 is better. My Satas only see basecoat use now. If you have an Iwata dealer nearby with a demo gun available-try it! 16-18psi, nice wide straight fan, excellent transfer, and perfect atomization. No more 45-50psi clearclouds for me-

I see a dealer on Ebay is offering an Iwata LPH-400 copy for dirt cheap, I have no idea if it is actually comparable performancewise with the Iwata but this may be an option for the budget painter if it is. Bob

****************************************
I have been against the cheap copies from day one.
HOWEVER, I have sprayed with that Iwata 1.4 - 400 copy you speak of.
It layed clear better than my Sata RP 1.4 that I just plain love and it shot VW
Silver base better than my FX97 Geo.

In short the $50+ gun kicked the a** of $1000++ worth of guns listed above.

Oh, it was a hands down win and not even close.

Barry K.. In your opinion, I have the Sharpe 300 Finex and the smaller version. Should I purchase this LPH-400 copy, for shooting my PPG base coat/ clear coat (red metallic). I am not a pro, just a novice hobbyist and do not want to tie up alot cash.....However my ears are open! P.S. If possible link the exact copy you are referring to....Thanks Blaster

Blaster,
I'm really not qualified to say as for one I hate the way a Sharpe sprays so have not used one in years.

Too me they are to slow and over atomize for my liking.

For a newbie painter I think the Sharpe may be a benefit as it will be harder to run the paint and should be easier to lay base.
I would try them before I spent any money on a new gun.

I am still using a accuspray hvlp for base and the sharpe 775 conventional I first started spraying with for clear. I probably will buy a new hvlp gun for clear soon, but for now it works for me.
