Concours HVLP Paint Gun. Part # 51550
One of the most important aspects of a paint gun is the way it feels in your hand. For the hobbyist it needs to feel comfortable with as little distraction as possible. For the pro, ergonomics are important to eliminate fatigue during extended use. The "Concours" is one of the most comfortable guns I've held. Its light, and the handle is narrow and easy to trigger.
With most weekend warriors having a limited supply of clean dry air, this gun sips volume at a rate of 4 cfm @30 psi which can easily be delivered with an average compressor and tank. Controls include the handy air valve control at the base for changes on the fly, with fan & fluid control at the back for easy adjustment. With waterborne paint, stainless steel internals are a must, and the Concours has a choice of 1.2, 1.4, and 1.8 stainless steel setups to handle almost any fluid delivery.
It's lightweight, it feels good, but how does it spray? The pattern
is great! With the 1.2 tip and a High-Solids Clearcoat similar to
the new Eastwood single stage paint, pattern is nearly 10 inches wide
with 30 lbs at the inlet, and even with straight water in the gun,
pressure in excess of 70 PSI never split the pattern. This makes it
very forgiving to different materials and painting styles. Prices
start at just under $200.00 with two setups, making it affordable
as a single gun for the hobbyist, or multiple guns for the pro that
wants a gun for each operation.
Bottom line . I like it! I'll give it a solid 9 out of 10 and recommend it for any skill level, including the pro custom painter that's looking for great value in a well engineered and versatile paint gun.
