Paint spray gun recommendation

I'm thinking about getting a spray gun to respray the wood on a
gazebo-like structure over an outdoor Jacuzzi. Painting with a brush
is really difficult, especially on the slatted roof.

I've got a 4 CFM, 80-115 psig, 4 gallon pancake compressor (Harbor
Freight)
and wondering what kind of gun I should get. I would like to think I
could get
one gun that would do that job as well as some minor auto body touchup
spraying,
but maybe that's too much to hope for.

TIA

Ed

Pick the paint first then pick the gun. I use a paint pot gun ( automotive
type) for oil based paint.
Fine for when I am spraying gate frames or other metal objects. Would be a
pain in the ass for large areas. Mine only holds a quart.

As you can see your compressor fails the CFM test

This gun will work with your compressor. Hold 4 ounces of paint. Not my
choice.


I use my airless for everything else. Pick a calm day and or warn your
neighbors. Paint can float a long way and create problems. I use old sheets
as covers when I paint. Keeps the mess under control for me.

Why, low of course!
A product called the "Critter" is very low cost.
it uses Mason jars as the paint receptacle.

Google for it.Lots of places sell them.
