    What am I missing?

    I saw an add for an Iwata spray gun on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...GI600VDV&psc=1

    What am I missing here as it seems to be way too cheap? I can't find that gun model on Iwata's website, so that's telling me to be cautious, but really don't care if it's a discontinued model if it meets my needs.

    Anyone know anything about this gun?

    John, if you go to their website and look at the online catalogue you will find that one and it's gravity fed version in their catalogue.

    Thanks Ken. Good to know it's a new model in production, but I can't find anything with regards to the internals and if it's rated for use with WB finishes.

    The only one of their guns I have is the LPH80. It's my favorite gun of all time, for what it does, but I'm sure I paid over three times that price for it.

    Knowing that they make, or have made for them that gun, I'm tempted to buy one because of the price in case I need it for something. I never got on good with other cheap guns, except as disposables for something like epoxy primer.

    John, in the Q&A, they indicate you can get it with the 1.3 tip by messaging them after order in case that helps you. That gun looks like it could easily be setup like the Accuspray, too, with the PPS system if you want.

    Yeah, I saw that, thanks. Not sure which I want, or if I'd get the 1.5 to start with and buy smaller ones later, if needed. And I would definitely set it up with the PPS H/O cup. It's the only way to go, IMO, unless you use so much finish to justify a pressure pot set up.

    I guess I'll have to call them to see if that gun is WB compatible.

    I cannot imagine it's not WB compatible...

    I'm absolutely "in love" with the PPS system you "talked me into"...not that you had to twist my arm much. LOL

    I couldn't find a video on that pressure feed model, but it looks like the pressure feed version of this gun:

    Probably a nice little toy.

    Here's the same guy showing the LPH80, with a brief comparison to the 101G:
