would this gun work

Would this gun work with base/clear, I found it on the harbor freight site, it caught my eye with the low cfm, I need something that will keep up with my compressor. I have a 30 gallon 8cfm compressor, buying another compressor right now is out of the question, heres the link

According to the link the gun only uses 5cfm and your compressor is 8cfm. at 29 bucks buy it and try it. It should not out draw your compressor and if the performance of the gun is good you should be good to go. Spray a bunch of test panels before you get into your project, and try it all. The 1.4 nozzle may be too big to atomize the clear but try it. Thats only way to find out.

yes it is but with that low of cfm going through the gun it might need a smaller tip to atomize the clear and get a nice flow.

It's just a regular gravity paint gun. Not HVLP so it will have lot's of overspray from running 40-50 psi at the gun. I still use one on occasion when painting OUTSIDE as they will fog a shop in no time without good ventilation. This is why it's such low CFM. It will do a decent job of painting and clearing but it will waste almost as much paint as get's applied.
