Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Guyfurnitureguy Outstanding Spray Gun for an Amazing Price
I build custom furniture and use this gun to death. I have used it almost daily for two years. I have shot water based poly, oil based poly, water based pre catalyzed lacquer, catalyzed two part marine varnish, stain, shellac based primer, water based latex paint, and enamel.
Yep, it did it all with the original 1.4 tip. The gun has several settings that let me shoot virtually anything. There is an adjustment for air volume, an adjustment for needle position and an adjustment for pattern. I keep the gun clean by taking it apart after EVERY use.
I did not thin the Behr latex paint, it has better cling and flow out at full viscosity. The only things I have needed to thin was the marine varnish and the Rustoleum enamel.
I am replacing this gun with the same model. I was cleaning it and I dropped it, damaging the threads that attach the cup. It broke my heart but not my wallet.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by ER Need better description on package
I cannot rate this product based on performance due to the fact that I had to return it before using it. I bought this to use with latex paint, which upon opening the box there was a warning that stated the product could not be used with latex paint. It would have been good to have this on the outside of the package so I would have not purchased it to begin with.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Thomasray Wouldn't spray
Spent only 5mins reading instructions and hooking it up to compressor. Seemed simple.
Even though the compressor was delivering air to the coupler, the gun would not produce a spray pattern. Only came out the end like a weak dribble.
Spent 60mins taking it apart and checking all the o rings, springs, valves, etc. Can't see anything missing or defective. Will be returned today.
Might be last Husky purchase - at the very least for a spray gun.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by mcarter76 Great Buy!
I purchased this a few weeks ago with the intention of spraying the large metal gate to my driveway. I made an earlier attempt with rattle cans and gotten bad results and flaking. I sanded again and applied the primer with the gun today and got excellent results with no previous experience. I used a cardboard box to spray test patterns and make adjustments. My Kobalt 8 gallon was keeping up just fine and on an extension cord too. Clean up wasn't bad, but keep in mind the fitting you unscrew after the nozzle is actually reverse threaded so it's something to be aware of and not documented in the manual.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by alakazam Good, but poorly documented
I purchased this spray gun and used it a few times until one time I was unable to clean the paint out of it. After an entire weekend of lost work trying to clean the paint out, I decided to start disassembling it further. After consulting every last word of disassembly instructions in the manual (hint: there isn't any), and looking over the replacement part breakout diagram, I started by removing the needle, the air cap, the nozzle, then moved on to the nozzle bushing.
However, the nozzle bushing would not give, which I thought was probably due to dried paint and possibly internal corrosion. Using the tool that came with the gun, I attempted to rotate it both ways (just in case) without success. I then tried taking it off with my 40 ft*lbs impact driver with no success. I then used a socket wrench and applied a great deal of force until it budged, at which point it became evident that it was reverse-threaded.
On a device where every single thing is using standard threading, and without a single mention of this anywhere in the documentation, you put a reverse-threaded piece on the spray gun. Because of this, I now have a broken spray gun and will be far more hesitant to purchase Husky products in the future.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DIYchick Works well!
I bought this spray gun a couple days ago to spray paint on cabinet doors. After reading up on it and understanding that latex based paints are difficult to spray, I ended up purchasing Benjamin Moore Advance paint instead of an oil paint (I just don't like cleaning up oil paint). I added a little water to it, and it sprays perfectly fine! The paint is thinner then a traditional latex paint to begin with, and it is meant to be slow-drying so it levels out anyway. I sprayed my cabinet doors when they were laying horizontally set up on nails on a board, not vertical.
I was afraid I was going to have to mask off my entire basement to paint, but, in my opinion, there was not too much over-spray. Some paint dust ended up on the floor, but I didn't have to mask off walls or the junk on my basement shelves or anything like that--just the floor.
I have a 4-gallon portable compressor that I used. The compressor had to run half-way through painting each door, but I would stop painting between cabinet doors to let the compressor catch up before I sprayed the next door.
I've only had it for a couple days and used it twice, but it has worked very well for my application. The instructions are easy to follow, and the unit is very easy to clean. This is the first HVLP spray gun I have used, so I can't compare it to others.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Irritated Worked good for me
Ok, I am nit a professional. I bought this to paint a small addition. I used it with my 8 gallon Husky Compressor with another air tank in line for more air capacity. I was spraying an exterior enamel paint that I thinned a little. It worked flawlessly. I used the 1.8mm tip and the results are very good. Don't be afraid to buy this gun, you will have to work with it a little to get the spray pattern you desire, but you have to do that with any gun. I have received a couple compliments on how well the paint job looks. If I can do it, you can do it.
