i recently purchased a used “eastwood original hotcoat gun” online to have as a second/spare gun to make things a little quicker when changing colors. when it arrived, it resembles my other gun but the end appears to have a cap with the electrode protruding and no deflector or static tubes inside.
i am thinking the deflector is missing but did the original guns not have the three tubes inside but instead have one tube that was part of the gun itself?
otherwise it appears normal, has the yellow stickers on the gun and power box that say original hotcoat gun, the handle has DG-10 on it but that is what my newer gun has too.
anyhow, any help would be appreciated, if need be i can post a pic of it. i just dont want to waste powder testing it if i am missing a part (other than the deflector)
