Chrome inside cup?????


Air-Valve Autobot!
I just brought home a Badger Patriot 105 with the .3 set up and was checking it out when I noticed that there is very little chrome inside the cup. I can see and feel the machining lines.
Is this normal? Wont the paint stick and tint the inside? I am reluctant to use it if I need to exchange it.....
I want to try this gun....
yup its normal and will eventually all wear off after a ton of use. its just brass underneath no issues. Airbrushes are dipped in chrome so the chrome doesn't fill the cup as much and if it was really thick that would leave less room for paint and make the cap not fit right.
Thanx guys.....
Going to try it for the first time in the morning. It feels real good in my hand. It is alot lighter and slimmer and the trigger feels smoother than my Talon
