I ordered this primarily to be able to apply an even base coat of paint to pieces of a model before assembly, and I think it will serve that purpose very well. In order to test it out and get a feel for the spray I first had to purchase a female quick connect nozzle, as this is the only air tool I have that has a male connector. Aside from that small inconvenience setup was quick and easy.
I found it very intuitive how to load the paint and reconnect the reservoir to the gun. Everything worked perfectly on a test run with water and the spray is very easy to control and apply evenly. I do not have a filter or hose-end regulator, but I had no difficulty adjusting the pressure on the pancake compressor. The sprayer performs very much like the detail nozzle on my HVLP paint sprayer for a fraction of the cost.
The cleanup directions look very detailed, providing specific information about flushing the line and cleaning the components before treating with mineral spirits so it continues to perform well in the future. It actually sounds like the bulk of the time will be spent cleaning up after a fairly simple setup and what should be a quick and easy painting session.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Roy92 Great gun for your money!!!
Got this gun as a Christmas gift from a friend a year ago (not educated in painting and how cheap guns aren't normally a got to) decided to try it out with some single stage rustoleum enamel and my own formula for it.
all I can say is WOW, it lays down the paint like GLASS! took a while to get my mix and settings right but man can this thing lay down paint
only issue is having to refill so often but then again it wasn't made to paint an entire vehicle but I did it anyway!
If you want learn how to

I use it to paint furniture with latex paint or chalk paint. I add some FloTrol to the paint and a little water. I always strain paint through Home Depot strainers from the paint section. Keep the pressure at 45 and it's a great time saver for chairs and intricate areas. I wish I would have bought 3 when they where on sale!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Timberwolf Not a bad Gun for the price
I use this gun to spray Clear Poly and Varnish on my wood products. I operate at 25-30 PSI and it does a good job, not great but good. You have to play with the settings, but the only problem I had was I had to constantly adjust the flow. One minuet it was spraying good, the next it wasn't. I had to keep adjusting the flow to get the gun to spray. Its easy to clean but Im on my second gun as the trigger on the first gun broke and you cant get replacement parts for this product

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Brian Great gun once I found out what to do
I was having problems when I was starting it, it would not spray paint. just keep it at 45 to 50 psi and keep pumping air through till it sprays paint. It took a minute, so heads up

First spray gun for me. I've used it to paint several old fire helmets with some leather paint. It worked really good, was easy to adjust and cleaned up easy. trigger took a little getting used to but was fine after oneoro two uses.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by weld387 Detail spray gun is decent
This is a great little sprayer for detail work or small projects. It has some nice touches in the way of paint containment. The smaller paint container tightens down like the old school spray guns did. Clean up was a snap with the provided cleaning tools that came with the spray gun. My only beef was the plastic trigger? Not sure how long this will hold up to constant use? Only time can tell on that point. The balance and even spray path when in use make it a good investment over all for the tool arsenal of any do it yourselfer.
