my friend Draggin is 100% correct
I'm REALLY not used to hearing that. lmao. Thanks, bro.
ulltraz- re-read my first post in this thread, and notice the part where Steve Angers admitted on his public forum to purposely and knowingly sending bad product to a paying customer. It's unfortunate that Richpen continues to do business with BearAir, and that, if you're in the US, Steve is your only source of them (Mike Learn was supplied by Steve with the 213's to "Mojo-ize" until he switched to the Paasche's). But, Steve has a loooong history of getting into trouble with airbrush manufacturers, largely for selling off-brand parts as being genuine parts. There was a long time that he couldn't sell Iwata's (which was when he started selling Richpens). Grex laywered up to get him to completely removed their name and all logos from his website after he was caught selling cheap, Chinese-made parts as "Grex" parts.
If thats the kind of business you want to promote, by all means, roll the dice and buy from Bearair. If you'd rather get as many crooks out of this business as possible, find someone else to buy from. The Richpens aren't THAT good of airbrushes
