Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Bronson Easy to use
Bought this to spray a 4 board fence. Works great with Behr fence stain. Did not take long at all before I had it adjusted to my liking. Only thing that would make it better is to have a little larger paint can on it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gerg No more brush marks!
I was adding shelving and cabinets inside my house and wanted the finish to be smooth. I tried carefully painting with a brush and roller but just couldn't get what I wanted. My regular HVLP guns weren't designed to spray the latex paint I was using so I needed a new tool, don't tell my wife. This siphon feed gun performed perfectly, giving me the smooth finish I wanted with out too much trouble. You will need a decent sized compressor and good line filtration to keep the air clean and dry. I would recommend setting up a spray booth to keep over spray from getting everywhere and respiratory protection to keep you safe.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Shed1 Bad for Latex
I'm a considerable painting expert with multiple guns/systems and paint types. Presently I just needed an inexpensive ~$30-$50 HVLP. They are normally great for small jobs using only 1-2 gallons or less, or changing colors.
But for this model and manufacturer, I have to echo what another user stated, just a cruddy spray. Looked more like my ceiling spackle sprayer!! I had to mess with gun, clean ports every quart, and clean with goof off at end of every quart !!? Ridiculous performance even with larger needle. Had I read reviews online... I'd've seen the red flag by other posters about thinning. If you have to thin good quality latex today - the equipment is the problem. Never could adjust spray pattern..... zero or random spew......
I do not buy and return stuff. But I am hoping HD will refund or at least partially. Serious waste of my lost time, gas, wasted paint. I kid you not, I could have painted the shed faster with a 6" or 8" brush. Splattered so terribly regardless of settings I had to brush anyway!

At first glance the price scared me a little. It was so inexpensive it has to be cheap right??? Not the case! I was impressed with the professional finish and I assume the trigger has been re-enforced, since the prior review I read, because I could not bend it at all. The spray pattern was perfect and the tool was very easy to clean. We sprayed 20 closet doors in a matter of no time. Great gun! Nice job HUSKY!!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by danedame Read the directions and you'll do fine
Finally got the opportunity to try out my Husky spray gun, and must admit it worked well. After reading several of the less positive reviews, though, I was hesitant it would perform well. But if you read the directions that come with the model, and follow them, you should do just fine.
Since I was spraying a custom color latex, I knew from the start that I'd have to thin it with water, in order to achieve a smooth, splatter-free spray. It did take a bit to get the consistency just right, but once I did, the paint flowed onto the project just fine (used it with my Husky 8-gallon tank.)
A word of caution, though-- if your paint has a "lifetime guaranty," manufacturers often state the paint must not be thinned-- so if you thin it to use in this sprayer, you'll be voiding the paint's warranty.
All in all, though, a great little sprayer for the price.

Not the easiest thing to use, trial and error to adjust to get the right spray also doesn't work well unless going up and down straight Used to paint some furniture and mailbox and overall came out ok....might be better off with an electric sprayer...

This gun is perfect for waterproofing the deck and fence - which are springtime necessities. We just hook it up to a compressor - the bigger, the better - and spray everything with waterproofing paint. Of course, if you forget to clean the gun after application, you are looking to buy a new gun.
