I got this along with its big brother and the same thing. They clog after about an hour then after a cleaning it starts to work and clogs again. Fresh paint shaken and straight from store. I would steer clear. Didn't even finish project a shed I was able to get 2 sides of a 8x10 before it clogged.

This air gun has changed very little since I first used one forty years ago and it is a solid product that gets the job done.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RG very frustrating...
I have many years experience with spray guns including airbrushes so I know how these things work. This gun sucks. I could never get a clean spray, the paint comes out in a heavy textured spray that splatters everywhere. I played with this thing many times and gave it many chances with various paints, It just does not work.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by scott I'd pass on this one unless you want texture
Was in need of a spray guy to finish a project and decided on this one at the local store. I've had two guns before, each with their own quirks so I'm no stranger to them...so when this one had a good range and spray come out, I was very happy...
However that changed within the first 5 minutes. After that, the gun started spitting. I took all the troubleshooting steps necessary and nothing changed. I've noticed a few other reviewers had the same problem. I'm returning it today.
Another thing I noticed is that every low review for this gun has at least one thumbs down....kind of odd there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Student Got the job done
the sprayer was easy to use but needed to be almost full to get an even coat. For the money it got the job done and was a good value.

This is one of the harder to find affordable guns that can actually shoot latex and acrylic enamel without having to resort to one of those overpriced and poor Wagner spray guns. Not for big jobs, whole house, but great for trim work because of cup size. This is a stellar performer IF you follow the directions. I just shot a gallon of paint on exterior trim with absolutely no trouble at all. It is a splendid value and. Dependable. I'd highly recommend it over Wagner for those thicker paint jobs. I have other spray guns I use with lacquer for those really fine jobs. Haven't tried this gun on finer work but it sure works great on thicker paints where my expensive finish guns can't handle. Paint a fence, house trim, a lawn chair and it'll be just fine. Can't beat the price - less expensive than those poorly built Wagners..

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 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!
