Mine is a Graco 395, great machine but if you're going to use it for fine finish get the hvlp air cap & tips
It's the finishpro model, not the airless model.

You can also get a Binks AA 4000 Air Assisted Gun that uses tips as the G15 but it can run at higher pressure like a G40.

I have several guns that I use off and on....

Binks AA-4000: (4000 psi as above)...this gun has a carbide fluid seat and needle. When using waterbornes, these corrode, and eventually the needle/seat leaks. Also, pulling the trigger bends the carbide needle, causing it to break eventually. Then it's $125 for a new needle cartridge. Same for the AA-1500. Great guns otherwise, great ergonomics, small, spray very well with the aa-10 aircap, or even the older aa-4 cap. Small but comfortable, with a wide selection of tips. These guns have been replaced by the AA-4400M and AA-1600M which fix these issues, or are supposed to.

Kremlin MVX - my favorite. Best ergonomics, no design flaws.
Replaced by Excite model. Can use CAT tips.

CAT Bobcat - Like a cross between Binks AA-1500 and Kremlin MVX. Trigger lock is a pain, but sprays great.

For pumps: You will get steady pressure (steady pattern) with an air driven pump... Check out the CAT or Kremlin...
They don't need much air, and can be driven by a little twin stack compressor. I have used electric pumps (Graco 395ST Pro), and they work ok too. I think Graco is a better bet for electric pumps, since they have a variable speed DC motor, which seems to work at low pressures like 600 psi. Get a pressure gauge for the pump...saves time dialing in....

How does the Graco 395 AAA setup run at 400 to 600 psi? Is there pulsation and pattern winking?

The diff is usually that the lower pressure versions have an easier trigger pull. They also have UHMW or teflon fluid seats, instead of carbide, making them seal better over time.
The point of AAA is to spray at lower pressures like 600 to 1000 psi, reducing overspray. The air assist atomizes the tails that you get without air at these lower fluid pressures. The air also improves overall atomization, and gives you control over fan width, similar to an hvlp.

Unless it's a very thick coating, up to 1500 psi should cover most needs. 4000 psi only if the harder pull doesn't bother you.

Default Can you help me where to buy converting tips for G40

I used to leave my gun in a bucket of thinners but stopped doing that when I realized that a bunch of junk was getting behind the diffuser and would come loose and spray out the air cap into my clears/paints. Instead I remove the cap and soak that in thinners, then blow out the inside with compressed air before reattaching for the next use.
Hello, I am a professional regular/decorative painter with years of experiences. Right now someone recommended me Graco G40. I am currently doing a kitchen refinish. I purchased a new Graco G40 gun with RAC tip and it aint no good for painting kitchen it releases dry peaces of paint and just messes everything up. This tip no good for it and I see you have done conversion. I would like to convert it to use G15 tip and cap. I cant work without it. Or what would you recommend for G40 what tips work with it. Or if the conversion from G15 works please help me as I dont know if the part will fit in from G15 into G40. What are the parts or helpful sites that can help me. Anybody please help I really appreciate thank you!

Graco sells a conversion kit. I don't know the part numbers, but talk to your Graco rep and they should be able to set you up.

Kremlin pumps & MVX guns in the shop & when we go on site (usually door frames & handrails) we've had no problems @ all with CAT's portable pump/compressor & the Bobcat gun.
