I want to get a new pump for my Graco 395, and the OEM part is about $300. However, when I looked up the part number I saw a lot of aftermarket pumps available from $50-120.
I know Graco is probably better quality, but I was wondering if anyone has had experience with the aftermarket pumps.

Are they just as good, good enough, fine in a pinch, crap, etc?

Is there are particular aftermarket pump you trust?

Is there any reason an aftermarket pump won't work well with smart control?

Bedford is the only aftermarket parts worth trusting to put into a customers pump, they don't sell direct so you need to go through a dealer. I've bought a couple of the Chinese complete pumps off Amazon with permission from the owners. They're ok but cheap out in a couple areas. Overall the manufacturing quality seems better than it used to be
