hey guys I'm thinking on buying some paint guns soon and found some online I was thinking about trying. Does anyone use these? Will they work? Thinkin about the big one for activator and the small one for painting.

    I wouldn't use the starting line for activator.....

    I had a Devilbiss Finishline which is the next upgrade to the Finishline. It was a good gun for clear and base, but not great. If you could only spend $150 on a gun, and don't shoot large items much, I would look at the ANI R150 mini gun in a 1.0 or 1.2 tip for clear and base. if you need a bigger gun for the same thing, I would look at the ANI F150. Neither of them would be good for activator if I had a choice. Jim here at K2 can hook you up with the ANI guns and they will come setup.

    My parts will mostly be small stuff. Guns, skulls, some car parts maybe, cups, stuff like that. So I should get up with Jim and check out his mini gun on that. Well what about activator. What would work for it?

    And what about the gun @onehitwonder offers. I see they are LVLP gun and most of what you hear is HVLP. What would they be used for?

    @Sreynolds Lol how much kick back do you get from selling guns for Jim?
  • SreynoldsSreynolds Posts: 1,392Member ✭✭✭✭
    Never met the guy !! He wouldn't sell it if it was s*&^ , I can tell u that ......... That wouldn't say much for his business ... right?

    I'm a big fan of Iwata guns. Have liked every one I've used. Currently use a LPH400 LVX for base and it's amazing.

    I use an AirGunza 1.8 for activator. I used Hydrovator, but have recently switched over to K2 Super Brew.

    We had a Starting line for about a year...I hated that gun with a passion...

    @K2Concepts. Alright point taken. Jim I'm seriously thinkin on buying one of your mini guns. Thinkin on that ANI. Wanting it for shooting base coat and clear coat. What do you suggest?
  • K2ConceptsK2Concepts Posts: 13,380Administrator El Jefe
    Either the 1.0 or the 1.2...it's a matter of preference...I use a 1.2 and my son uses the 1.0...same compressor...same air pressure...same materials...just a matter of preference...

    Ok I should do a little more research on it and see what I think would better suite me. I have used paint guns in the past so I'm familiar with them. But I'm no painter by trade. But I figure I can get the hang of it pretty quick. Especially with the help of everyone here. I must say this has been the best forum I have ever known of.

    Well...take the middle ground and get the 1.0...highest demand of them all so far...and hard to get so grab one and worse comes to worse? You have an excellent clear gun...

    And thank you for the compliment...this IS a great forum but only because of members like yourself...

    Alright I think that's what I'll do. I appreciate the help bud. Couldn't get it done without all of you.
