    Cool collection, Lee!:thumbsup:

    How do you find your SRI, let's say, compared to any other mini spray guns you've tried?
    Asking why. They are not cheap and if they'd worth the cash paid for them or maybe be there's smth that would work equal, but for less $$.

    Well in honesty I've only used them a couple of times but they do spray really really smooth compared to the smaller (red) gun which is the only one I can compare them too but it was only £12, saying that its not bad for the price.
    As for buying them, If I had to get some guns, had spare money and would be using them a lot I would go out and pay full price for them. They're not cheap, however it's like buying a good quality airbrush, you get what you pay for, great quality and superior spraying/atomisation. I got them off a friend for silly money so can't complain.

    Funny thing is, I have gun like yours red, but haven't ever tried it. Now I know, that SRI will spray smoother, but I'll only know that after the first try of chinese gun:)
    Will consider SRI when I need another mini gun.

    How do you find that one at the bottom left? I have similar, only the head can produce flat spray pattern , it works normal.

    It's ok for a really cheap £7 gun, its only a 0.5 but it works fine with normal paints and has a round spray pattern. The one next to it must be like yours but does have a bigger setup and sprays in a fan pattern. Again it was also really cheap at around £10 but works perfectly well for non critical paintwork. The red gun isnt bad by any means either so give it a try, It does give a pretty good result.
    I will have to see if I can find the picture of the golf club my niece sprayed with it (with my assistance)

    Agree, it's cheap, but nevertheless works good.
    That one red (mine is chromed, but it seems from the same factory) I've been advised to buy, bought it and never tried. If girl could normally use it, that means that the gun isn't that bad at all:)
    I've got SATA minijet and other, used them, so there was no chance to use this chinese gun. It still sits new in box.

    BTW, found this mini gun on TCP.

    It only shows brass paint nozzles, mine is stainless steel, but I like the body of the one in the link. It's easy for cleaning. If I haven't had all the setups in other mini guns, I'd consider this one.
