    if you slip the needle tip into each nozzle, the one that allows more of the needle to protrude out the front will be the larger nozzle. Many times the taper on a .2 and .3 needle are the same - many brushes use a fatter diameter wire for the .3 (1,2mm on .2, 1,4mm on .3)

    Most of the name brand brushes will have a different nozzle cap for the .2 and .3, in addition to a needle cap, as the spray pattern should be wider. No telling what corners the no-names cut. I have a few with all three sizes, and while they supply 3 needles, they are the same needle ;).
