So I got an older HP-C (not the plus) and I have a few questions. I am having a hard time with atomization, and the trigger is very rough; kind of has a point that it gets hung up on on the push down.

I am also trying to get finer detail out of it and would like to move to a .2 needle. I like being able to cover alot of ground with the .3 but also hit up hairlines after. Can I get parts for the HP-B and run a .2 needle? If so what should I get. Also what parts should I get to fix the trigger? Many thanks.
 
The trigger is most likely an oring that has gone bad, or the lube is very gummy, you may also want to check the air valve piston oring.

As for an older hp-c to a B set up, not sure if all the newer parts are the same as the new models, you may want to check with a dealer. I did this conversion in a newer hpch all I changed was the needle, nozzle and air cap.

Sounds like you want a lot, How about an proper introduction so we can know more about you. Like how long have you been airbrushing?
What paints are you using and where your from.
.3 can do hair lines with practice . .2 make them easier to do . .15 even easier . But all of them take practice to do them well.
Not really sure what you are saying when you say covering a lot of ground with the .3 , .5 or even .7 cover a larger area but then again I am not sure what you are painting on .
I am sure you kind of see where this is going.
On the trigger , Did you soak the entire airbrush in cleaner?
if so what cleaner?
While most airbrushes today have teflon needle bearing but still run rubber o-rings for the air valve, which can swell up if soaked in a cleaning agent such as Airbrush Restore or paint thinner. which will cause the trigger to stick or not be able to push it at all.

The more information you provide the better answer you will receive .
