    5Excellent siphon gun
    By Zeppelinator
    I have had many guns over the years ranging from top of the line to bottom of the barrel. This gun performs very well, and for the price, it simply cannot be beat. It can lay a fairly heavy coat easily which is a common weak spot with most siphon guns. The hvlp adjustment really works to control the velocity of spray. Overall a winner. I will be getting a couple more.

    4Gun works but it needs attention before you can use it.
    By Joe
    I bought the gun after reading every review. I used to spray cars in a body shop and when my primer suction gun of 20 years finally went I researched this one. Honestly after running a gallon of automotive primer thru the gun it took almost as long to get the darn thing dialed in as it is very awkward with adjustments that are hard to find a happy spot. When I first got it I washed it in thinner to clean out a bunch of dust and debris from the box. I had to tighten all the nuts as the packings were all loose. Again, it took a while but it does spray automotive primer pretty good with the proper attention. Right out of the box it needs some love; just so you know. If I had to do it again, I probably would not buy this gun. I would spend a bit more and try a different model. Astro was the model I owned before and their quality was always good so felt safe buying it. Heck, I got 20 years from the last one. I'm sure this one will not go that long as the needles are 1/2 the diameters and it does not feel comfortable while spraying. I am used to spraying with this type of gun and this particular model just feels cheaply designed.

    By Program Reviewer
    The gun works OK considering the price. The adjustments don't do much except on/off. The instructions that come with it are basically useless if you don't already know the components of a spray gun. No indication what so ever as to where the adjustments are on the gun. Just a parts list YouTube has some good general purpose videos on how to use a spray gun.
