Yes, but works better with 10% water added. I got a great smooth finish using a 5 hp, 60 gal compressor and 25 ft of 3/8" hose at 25psi on the gun.

Oil based paint?

Would this be a good gun to use oil based exterior paint to paint a wrought iromn fence outside? I need something that will minimize overspray or fogging.

This gun would not be the best choice for oil based paint. This one is best for high build primers or epoxy. I would suggest the gun with the 1.4mm size for your oil based paint, item #4519000.

answer 2
Yes, it will work. I sprayed Rustoleum rusty metal primer (oil based) on patio furniture using a Vaper 1.7mm gun. It worked but was too slow. The 2.3mm gun would be better. The bigger problem will be getting enough air through a long hose. I could not get a nail gun to work at the end of two 50 ft hoses, so a paint gun would be very iffy. A portable compressor with shorter hose might be better, but cfm could be an issue.

I was unable to find any nozzle and needle kits, so I spent the $40 to buy another gun. I do suggest buying the same brand so the wrenches and cups will work on both. You can be sure that a nozzle kit would cost $20 or more, so you may as well just get the whole gun.

Yes, it will work just fine as long as it’s not reduced. If you plan on reducing the primer then I would suggest item # 4519018. Please see below.

answer 2
I have both guns (1.7 and 2.3mm). The 1.7 is perfect for auto epoxy primer, so I suspect the 2.3 would throw too much material and you'd end up with runs.

answer 2
I used the 2.3 Vaper with a Sears 1 hp, twin compressor. I sprayed GelCoat - 5 coats. Sure, I had to wait sometimes for the compressor to "catch up," but it presented no problems. I think the airflow at 40psi was something like 6-7 cfm.
