About two months ago I purchased my first paint gun. Before spending the money I did a little research because the paint guns I had the opportunity to use in the past did not impress me. I simply did not think that they were worth spending three to four hundred dollars on. At some point in time I had stumbled upon a web site http://www.spraycat.com I found a company that states that their gun have 12 point of atomization, are American made, and very reasonably price. Being my first paint gun I opted for their techline 3 which features an economy body with the cap, tip, and needle from their higher line of guns…Upon recieving of the gun I prepped the hood, one of the doors, and a few other parts to play with my new toy…The results were amazing. All I did was remove gun from the packaging, assemble, mount a regulator and in-line filter, connect the hose and went to town…Truthfully I have never seen a paint gun that can lay primer as flat and smooth as the results I have had with this gun.. This was $200 well spent.
