I have been doing body work with my dad for many years and I just recently switched to gravity guns. Gravity are a lot better in my opinion becasue you don't have to deal with spitting when your out of paint it just quits spraying, clean up is easier with gravity. I don't have a specific brand of paint guns I use.. A gun is only as good as how clean you keep it. I painted my truck with a paintgun brand I have never heard of and it looks great. The quality of paint is a big part and how you mix it. Just keep the gun clean and more clean use Lacquer Thinner.. Or somthing like that. Good Luck

Sata Jet 2000 works about the best for B/C with a 1.3
Primer/Sealers home depot works the best and is cheap
