If You Were Going To Spray A Couple Of Jobs. Would It Be Better To Spend The Extra Money On A Seperate Primer Gun Or Could It All Be Done With A Nice Gun Like The Millennium ?
It's usually best to have a less expensive primer gun but you can do it with your top coat gun as long as you CLEAN it real well right after you shoot the primer. Primer tends to cling to everything so purchase a decent cleaning kit to make sure you get it all out and it's a good thing to have for all your gun cleaning.

SO YOU WOULD RECOMMEND BUYING A QUALITY GUN WITH A PRIMER TIP AND A GOOD CLEANING KIT or BUYING A SEPERATE PRIMER GUN. EITHER WAY I AM GOING TO HAVE TO CLEAN THE GUN. SO MY THOUGHT WAS TO INVEST IN A NICE GUN, TIP. WHAT DO YOU THINK ?
Two guns is the best solution.

I decided to go ahead with two guns, and it really doesn't cost that much more. In a primer gun you just want the right size tip(s) and an HVLP model to save primer which can get pricey. You don't really want a complete knock-off but you don't need a high-buck gun either. This may or may not be the right gun for you, but I went for a Porter-Cable PSH1 for my primer gun. You can get one shipped to your door for about $57 on Amazon. At my local welding supply store(which also sells paint equipment) it sells for $100 + tax. It has a 1.5 tip, but that is good for epoxy. You can update to a larger tip for about $20 if you want to spray 2k urethane. I haven't used it yet but someone else on the site has one and has good things to say about it. I also plan on purchasing a Millenium or Plus later, but this holds me over for now. I don't have to drop $300 now, I can wait and save for later.

I like going with two separate guns. I use the GTI that I got from Len for all my base, clears, and single stage. I use an old Finishline gun for all my primers. It came with a 1.6, 1.8, and 2.2 tip. I only use the 2.2 tip for gelcoat or polyester primer.
