Warwick 878SHE Mini Spray Gun Review

Warwick 878SHE Mini HVLP Spray Gun

Above is a video on the technical details and a quick demo of the Warwick 878SHE.

We at the LABAP headquarters really think that the Warwick 878SHE Mini Spray Gun a fantastic little gun and you get a great BANG for your buck if you decide to get one of these to add to your collection.

The first thing that I noticed when holding this gun was the length of the trigger. It’s about a good half inch longer compared to the SATA mini jet which I think is a great feature and adds to the comfort of this gun when in your hand.

It sprays like a dream. I personally see no real difference in spraying with the Warwick 878SHE VS the SATA Mini Jet 3000. The main difference is the cost and the tip sizes.

The SATA has a much smaller tip size. On the other hand, if you’re doing overall touch up work with automotive finishes you want to stay in the 1.0 – 1.3 tip size range anyway.

If you have a crazy budget and only want the BEST OF THE BEST and care about BRAND name, then get the SATA. They are very well made guns and you can learn more about the SATA MINI Jet guns here.

If you don’t car too much about brand name, however, care about quality, craftsmanship and performance on a lesser well known brand, then head on over to Zoolaa and check out the awesome spray guns at the shop. They really do compare to the higher end guns out there today but for a fraction of the cost.

I used the Warwick Spray Guns as well as the Atom Spray Guns. However, I prefer the Atom Spray guns and use them here for all of our jobs at the LABAP headquarters. I absolutely love them. You can learn more about them in our video reviews of each gun here at LearnAutoBodyAndPaint.

Visit Zoolaa and learn more about the Atom Spray Guns, automotive enthusiasts are now raving about!
