    I've used a SATA and it worked great. I own a DeVilbiss Finish Line and I really like it. Not as nice as the SATA but it is much cheaper and it works good.

    I have yet to buy, but the reviews I have read say the premium gun set sold at
    Harbor Freight is identical to a DeVilbiss Finish Line, the parts interchangeable. I
    haven't bought one, seen one in person or anything to back that up, just from a
    decent amount of reading online.

    Nothing better on the market than Iwata - I wouldn't use anything less.

    Any name brand gun is good. I've used the harbor freight ones and they work fine but tend to develop leaks. I use a cobalt sharp, goes a long time between rebuilds and wasn't very expensive. I had my snap on dealer order mine, it was about $200 in 2005, I've seen them on ebay for $150 new. I use mine for everything too, epoxy, primer, paint, and clear. just tear it down and clean it good with xylene or mek after epoxy. I use a 1.6 tip for primers and 1.4 for paints.

    If your going to be painting a lot like 2 or 3 cars a year get a 400.00 gun. I've painted 2 cars an don't plan on painting any more but who knows. I bought a 100.00 hvlp gun for base coat an clear coat only & a 45.00 hvlp for primers. They both worked great.
