First timer. Just used the big gun with the 1.3 for primer and paint. moved to the 1.7 for clear. Still no real idea what i'm doing, but things worked out well. Clear was really orange peely, but I think that is a lot of user error. I have a 26 gallon Kobalt compressor. Never ran out of air and very occasional pump runs. I was painting a bicycle so small areas. Not sure how it would do if you were painting a car or something.
I bought this LVLP spray gun kit for painting my boat. It's working great!
Even though I'm an old guy, I'm a complete rookie using spray guns but this one is easy to use. The best thing is that it works with my little 2HP 8 gallon compressor. An HVLP gun would not. So this LVLP unit is just the ticket for those folks who don't need a big compressor and giant air tank.
The first coat of paint on my 42 year old boat using the Sprayit 33500 looks great! More coats to follow. Can't wait till it's finished!
I'm loving this LVLP spray gun. As someone with no prior experience with these, I found the operation to be pretty straightforward after watching a youtube video or two, and everything is sufficiently easy to break down to clean. All the parts are well made and carefully finished, with no burrs on edges.
I would note that the first time you go to take the nozzle out of the larger of the two guns for cleaning you may need to use a real wrench rather than the included ones, since (at least for mine) it seems they had a gorilla doing the tightening on that at the factory ;-)
I've been using this to spray water-based acrylics & latexes so far, and as long as things are thinned properly, they spray quite well and it's WAY faster than rolling or brushing and way cleaner too. I love having the smaller gun because it's a good step between the larger one and an airbrush, for when I'm priming & painting hobby & craft projects.
I'm looking forward to getting quite a few years of service out of it!

I paired LVLP Spray Gun with my new California 11 Gallon 2 HP, 110v Compressor - CFM 5.2 capable, which works great with both the spray guns from the kit - drawing around 3-4 CFM. I achieved a very smooth finish on my car.
Compressor kept up with my Spray gun, and I was not disappointed.
Set the Spray gun at 2 bar /30-32 PSI with gun fully opened. I set the spray paint volume control fully opened, and controlled the paint by my trigger pull. Lastly, quality is made well - a very satisfied DIY consumer.
