Supposed to be an Iwata 400 knockoff, but have never used it. I would also like to hear from someone that has used it in comparison to the Iwata it copies. Personally I would stick with a name brand gun like the Astro but for the money it would'nt hurt to buy the gun and try it, you could always use it as a backup if it worked OK.........

I looked at the iwata 400, they seem to be well over the $200.00 range, I think 40 bucks is kinda cheap even for a knock off.

Here are the specs for that gun :

PRODUCT SPECIFICATIONS

Model Name: PQ-Finish L400-GB LVLP
Feed Type: Gravity
Nozzle Size: 1.5 mm
Op. Pressure: 10 - 45 PSI
Pattern Width: 3-10 in.
Air Consumption: 3.0 - 3.9 CFM
Cup Type: Metal
Cup Capacity: 1000cc
Item Code: RP8609/R400GB


10 - 45 psi @ 3.0 - 3.9 CFM ( I don't think so !).

I'd like to try the gun just for the heck of it, to run it through its paces and see how well or how bad it performs.

I agree, it can't be doing much if it's a full size gun using that amount of air. Even the most conservative "well engineered" guns that cost many times as much use two to three times as much air. Then again if it was a small spotting gun the the 3 to 4 CFM would make more sense but it's not.

I would think that it's being sold to the DIYer that knows he doesn't have the compressor to drive most guns so they tell them anything to sell the gun.
