The Neiko Air Spray Gun is a high volume spray gun without a premium price tag.

And do you need a spray gun that can be used with a wide variety of mediums, including latex, oil-based, and water-based paints?

Then the Neiko Air Spray Gun could be the right tool for your next project.

Here are some of our experiences with the Neiko HVLP Air Spray Gun and what we thought of the unit overall.

What Jobs is the Neiko Air Spray Gun Best Suited For?

For precision spraying, this air spray gun does an excellent job.

Even though the cup is only 600cc in size, you’ll be pleased to see the consistent coverage that can be obtained.

The 1.7mm nozzle works pretty well for a balanced spray.  The gauge on the gun is pretty easy to read in several different operator positions. 

With an average air consumption of 4.5 CFM, it’s perfect for large or small DIY jobs and from what we’ve seen, the results look very professional indeed.

Neiko Tools HVLP Spray Pattern

The HVLP design of this sprayer compliments your work nicely. This helps users receive a fairly consistent spray pattern.

You can also control the pattern being applied thanks to knobs located on the back or underneath the gun.  And depending on what adjustments you need to make, this makes the tool rather ambidextrous in nature. 

Neiko Air Spray Gun Tips

Your applications for use are somewhat limited with the 1.7mm tip. This spray gun isn’t great for bases at all. It’s more for finishing work than anything else.

We would also prefer more than just an aluminum cup and nickel plating for corrosion resistance.  However, considering the price involved, it is still a durable tool to add to your collection. 

Unboxing Your New Neiko Toolneiko toold

Many issues that are listed in public reviews can be easily fixed. Like most products that you order online, the Neiko Air Spray Gun benefits from a good cleaning before you use it.

Make sure you check your threads before running paint through it as well to prevent any leaks from springing up on you.

A little care before will reduce your maintenance time and costs later on down the road. 

Who Makes Neiko Tools?

Neiko Tools are made for Harbor Freight.

Accessories for your Neiko Spray Gun

Are Neiko Air Spray Guns Any Good?

Check out the video below that compares two spray guns in the same price category; the Neiko HVLP Air Spray Gun and a Harbor Freight Paint Gun.

Neiko Spray Pattern

The pattern that you receive from this gun is really nice. So many spray guns offer users a somewhat inconsistent pattern when spraying.

Even if all of your settings are right where they need to be, the occasional splatter or droplet can interfere with the work that you’re doing.

That’s even true with some premium level HVLP sprayers. 

Weight 

It is a remarkably lightweight sprayer for the results you receive. Many sprayers that are below 3 pounds in weight tend to provide inconsistent results.

Although you see this somewhat with this Neiko model, it isn’t something that is overly noticeable unless you’re using many different types of sprayers over a short period of time.

It fights user fatigue so you get a consistent pattern as often as possible. 

Conclusion

If you’re on a tight budget and want to use a spray gun with a portable air compressor to receive consistently good results, then the Neiko Air Spray Gun is the solution for you.

Give it a look today and we think you’ll be impressed.

  1. I order some of your Neiko paint guns, ( haven’t received them yet ) and i was just wondering if y’all sold just the tips for the spray guns.

    • Hi Tony,

      As far as I know, the Neiko doesn’t have interchangeable tips like other, more expensive paint sprayers. Basically, if you purchased a 1.5mm, then that gun is 1.5mm: no changing out the tips for a 2.0 or a 1.3mm. If you find out something different, let me know.

      Thank you – John
