opinions on solvent sprayers sure shot metal vs usc pump sprayer???

the sure shot is a pressurized sprayer you add air to. Around 200 PSI is max. In the other corner hailing from USC is the plastic pump sprayer w/ viton seals. I've always preferred the pump sprayers but would like to hear some opinions. The last time I've seen a sure shot sprayer it seemed to die out pretty quickly. I will be using it to check straightness of primer and to clean stripped metal.

Opinions welcome. I'm kind of leaning on the pump sprayer but tool topia has free shipping and cheap tools but only the sure shot. I plan on getting a couple other tools too. Not a biggie though cause if I get a pump sprayer elsewhere the shipping and the sprayer will be as much as the sure shot.

I went ahead and got the USC pump sprayer. Viton seals and a brass nozzle seal the deal for me. I've always liked the pump sprayers over the old pressure filled ones. I'd just hate to bother the painter while he's cleaning something down to go ask for his sprayer just for body related stuff. "get your own damn sprayer" is what I'd be thinking so I'll oblige.

I have had one for years, still works fine for me.

they're pretty sweet. I can imagine filling up a sure shot and busting the seals. No thanks! A pump sprayer seems to make more sense.

I have used Sureshot sprayers filled with baby oil to spray down dirt track cars to keep mud buildup down, but haven't used them for solvents. I have a USC pump sprayer that works great for spraying homebrew cleaner (50/50 acetone and denatured alcohol) for parts cleanup or brake jobs.

I also have a Hudson Tek hand sprayer with a big pump handle for Simple Green/Purple degreaser duties. It doesn't have a brass nozzle though.
