Comparison Walther Pilot Premium AR and Binks 2100V

Corrosion resistance is a must, and both guns feature stainless steel passages for the fluid. One main difference is the material of the nozzles (fluid tips) and needles. The Walther pilot spray gun comes in 6 different needle sizes (1.0-3.mm) made of vacuum hardened steel while the Binks features 4 different sizes (1.3-2.8mm) in highly-wear resistant tungsten carbide. However, the 2100V has the 2.2 mm which is a quite common size for glazes. In addition, the Binks 2001V gun has the widest range of air caps available in the market. However, the Binks is also 30% heavier in weight.
