    I bought mine in 2014. I bought them because of the reviews I had read on them I had a couple higher end guns and was hoping I could find something cheaper that sprayed well. Im going based on my own experience on them. I would love to find several guns that spray very well and last a long time at a discounted price. Seems to be a hard thing to do. My opinion is not because I believe sata or iwata are the greatest on the planet either.

    Phil does your gun have a plastic seal in the aircap or a rubber one?

    Nylon seal in the aircap.

    Mine is LVLP. I still use it often with no problems. If something happened to mine I would not hesitate to buy another one.

    Spray guns are tools like any other tool. Some tools are a perfect match for some people and once in a while you will find that that tool just doesn't fit another person. Not everyone is going to be happy 100% of the time. I'm not impressed with HVLP guns in general, up to and including Sata spray guns. My experience is compliant guns work much better for production painting and the LVLP guns are a little slower but have more control and better finesse, not as fast as compliant guns. Like I said, not impressed with HVLP in general, regardless of who makes the gun.

    A good HVLP gun is ok with base but we don't use it for clear or single stage coatings because they don't lay the top coats on as smoothly. One of the benefits of the Sagola 4600 is that it comes with both HVLP and clear air caps.

    Default ? for Phil V on gun psi

    The only reason I can think of anyone wanting a 1.8 tip of for thick fill primer and if you plan on using the 1.3/1.4 for spraying clear coat and base coat then I strongly advise you to using a different gun for primer. Any cheap spray gun makes a good primer gun and you don't want chunks of primer coming out of the gun while shooting base coat or clear coat. Never use a topcoat gun as a primer gun. (that's years of experience talking).
    Phil, I saw your reply about the Warwick 904H and was wondering what psi you use to spray clear with your 904H? I have the 904H with the lvlp air cap and I have had great luck spraying clear with it. I also have the hvlp air cap but have only used it to spray base. So what psi do you usually prefer with this gun for best results spraying clear? thanks

    I replied to your private message but I will repeat it here for other people. A good Warwick 904H gun inlet pressure for me is around 24 psi + or - 2 psi.

    I see Warwick and the guy who used to hawk them on Youtube - "Tony", some guy wearing a wife beater and a hat on backwards - have had a falling out. After saying how wonderful they were for a while, now they're unreliable and poor, and he is now pimping a new Chinese made no name gun (Atom?) which, of course, is as good or better than Sata, Iwata etc. I assume the falling out was over money but who knows? I had a look on the Warwick website and they are making lawyerly sounds.
    All good fun.

    Just curious Phil do you use the original air regulator that came with the gun? Also I have the warwick with lots of air holes in the aircap and it sprays more like a rp style gun. Have you tried the hvlp cap ?

    Ya, I still have the original inlet pressure regulator on my gun. It works for my use. I have the original 1.4 LVLP air cap on my Warwick.
    I have not tried the HVLP cap because I'm not a big fan of HVLP guns in general. My preferences a re either LVLP or Compliant. the LVLP gun is a little slower than compliant but then I don't spray paint 8 hours a day any more either. If I was still a production painter I would use a compliant gun or even the old Sata Jet 90, not compliant but a great gun. The Sata Jet 90 was an old school high pressure gun (not HVLP, LVLP and not RP/Compliant) Old technology but hard to beat for fast production painting putting on glass smooth paint jobs.

    Didn't you use to use this gun in a shop environment Phil? Because you've had the gun for 9 years, I find with the hvlp cap it actually flows more paint than the lph400. You said in previous post that you sold a devilbiss prolite because you liked the way the warwick904 sprayed ?
