I use the Graco turbine. If I were to but a compressor driven model it would be the makita 5.2 compressor

And apollo 7700T gun

Like compressed air or what we call conventional guns? I don't, but my air-assisted used a compressor along with the airless pump. I use a G-15 gun.

I had a discussion with a lacquer shop after I fixed their merkur pump for the third time why they aren't using AAA guns. Told me they don't see huge benefits and their guys just wreck those $500+ guns. From the shape of the pumps I totally believe them the grunts spraying lacquer can't be arsed to take care of equipment. They just run a silver plus and fflp tips.

Yea, that customer is a little backwards running an air-driven airless and not utilizing the air they already have. I wouldn't say the guns are delicate, but they are much smaller and lighter than a heavy duty silver. I can see guys that don't clean the equipment ruining a G15/40 real quick.

Both look good to me! I am looking to upgrade and I wanted a compressor that unlike Graco or some such is not a paint dedicated system because I also want to get some other new pneumatic tools. I was looking at apollo guns, they seem pretty sweet. Have you ever used one?

I have only used the graco and titan gun. The titan gun sucks. Graco is very expensive for the gun almost 2x the apollo. Also the apollo can convert between turbine and compressor.


My ideal setup would use the graco turbine, apollo gun with the graco cup and liner optionally use with the makita compressor.

Ya, none of us want much, just the simple ability to mix and match all products, right?
