These currently sell new for $289.00.  This item has been refurbished by Apollo and meets or exceeds the original specifications for the product.

Connect gun to any HVLP system using a standard 5/8" quick connect coupler.

These are bleeder-type guns I assume?

These are bleeder type guns. That means that they continually pass air though the the air cap and out the front of the gun. This is necessary to keep turbine units from overheating. Various manufacturers have tried non bleeders with varying degrees of success over the years. Most manufacturers have perfected the bypass mechanism and now offer both types and they work equally fine. There are some great deals on these units if you need a turbine gun. If anyone has questions please contact me.
