Looking for United States retailer who sells Devilbiss FLG-5 gravity feed spray guns

Trying to be the best me, I can be
Years ago, I used to buy fairly expensive guns for primer. Ruined more than one when working commission, I'd prime then while waiting for it to flash be working on another car. Set the gun down and the before I knew it the primer (2k urethane) had kicked over. Never bothered me too much as I was making good money at those Shops. Looking back on it I realized how stupid it was to buy a expensive gun for primer (at least for me). Priming is hard on a gun, especially 2k urethane and poly primer in the summer. Guns get dirty, rarely do you have the time to really get them clean. So I started using Astro's and others like Iwata Air Gunsa's. Shine likes the Vaper 2.3 gun mentioned in this thread for poly primer. Most any cheap 1.8 nozzle gun will spray 2k Urethane decently enough, especially considering it all gets sanded. I currently have 2 Iwata air gunsa's that I use. When those croak I'll go with something cheaper than those. Spend your money on your basecoat and clear guns

A few reasons, Don
I have looked at the Starting and Finish line guns from Devilbiss because they fall in my price range at the moment.]
i started with a startingline gun. they dont atomize very good. allright with the 1.8 tip for primer since it was getting sanded and laid solid color base ok but clear always had OP. not a very wide spray pattern,too.

What I'm seeing is that you're willing to spend around $270-300 now then $500-600 next year. In essence, you're spending $700-900 total when you could just buy a great quality gun now for around $600. The Tekna has a choice of tip/air caps that are perfect for base and clear. Get a cheap Harbor Freight or a Vapor for primer.

The shop the Gunman works for has a Standablue mixing bank. He is in Australia. It is a brand I have not heard of here in the states. Maybe someone on here knows something about it but I don't.

Chris, I had an airgunsa in 1.8 and replaced it with the FLG5 in 1.4/1.8 which i think is a far better gun. Take this from a hobby guy however.
 
I have a SATA KLC gun for primer, and is sprays high-build good with a 1.8. I have a 2.5 nozzle set that I use for polyester like slicksand, but have not felt the need to use it on the 2k high-build.
