AP-2 Really?
Why do we need to create any further confusion, Gama/PMC called their new GAP gun an AP-2??

Couldn't we have just called it GAP3 or something!

All those newbies that call in for parts are going to say I have an AP gun - LOVELY!!

whoa, a little touchy...if that ain't a modified gap gun, then you don't know your guns.

But I am going to try one - so I know how it easy/hard it is to take care of.

RE: AP-2 Really?
Hi Bob - thanks! Nope I am a GRACO girl with a big mouth, lol. I sell GRACO that is, and your not allowed to sell the competition, however we all do trades on the side sometimes. I keep an open mind and closed mouth till I try it myself then it rolls the other way - closed mind > open mouth usually !! Like the studwall kit for the fusion ap gun - it sucks! Not going to sell somebody something that costs a bunch of money and works like crap!

I was just mad about the name of this gun, I pick up newbies all the time that got screwed on their rig and helping them on the phone when they have no idea what they got can be frustrating! I'm on vacation for the next 2 weeks > goodbye sprayfoam world - see ya mid July ...

If you think the AP-2 spray gun resembles the Gap gun tan you you certainly need to do your homework, this gun is superior in design and performance an I think it is the best made gun since the Gusmer GX-7. Give it a try Goddess and ask me to supply them to you

Sprayfoam goddess,You state "If that ain't a modified gap gun, then you don't know your guns". So, I take it that you are an expert in the design of spray guns and you are so good that you dont need to look under the hood or test drive anything before you make a comparison. Really?

You also state "I was just mad about the name of this gun, I pick up newbies all the time that got screwed on their rig and helping them on the phone when they have no idea what they got can be frustrating!"

Really? "Mad about the name of this gun" "I pick up newbies all the time" "no idea what they got can be frustrating!"

Really?

Please, Sounds more like an old redheaded sea hag "frustrated" trying to pick up drunken sailors.
lol.....

Went to watch a demo of the AP-2 at Sprayworks a few days ago and bought one. Very simple and light weight. I don't really care what it's called or who is selling what. The parts sellers will have to figure it out, not me. If it works, with less maintenance and makes me money, I'm all over it. We'll be trying it out using both foam and polyurea.

RE: AP-2 Really?
Wow, another new supplier pimping his products. At least goddess and other suppliers that post here answer alot of questions without trying to sell anything, just for the sake of helping others who haven't been trained properly. They don't just spam a bunch of the boards. That new pmc gun looks interesting, but there is nothing special about it, nothing revolutionary. A two piece mix chamber? Looks like a P2 with the fron tip attached. Gun comes off the manifold, shutoff valves, fluid section seperates from the air section, mix chamber attaches to the air piston, all like a fusion. Trigger similar to a GX-7. Replace the fusion, doubt it. CS a piece of #$!?, hardly. Cost effective? Pricing looks the same as a fusion. Any modern gun that the applicator is properly trained on is a good gun; Fusion AP, Fusion CS, Probler P2, GX-7, etc. The only thing that is new is that side seals and filters are together. How is this gun going to make the sprayers job easier? How much spraying have you done with a CS gun? That is the gun that makes us sprayers money. Perfect mix and pattern every time increases yield, reduces waste by minimizing cleanup and spraying smoother, flatter foam, and minimal drilling means 15% more spray time per day than drill time.

My two cents,

Bob

RE: AP-2 Really?
Hi Longtime, Not to defend the supplier pimping his products on this post, however sounds like you took a peak under the hood. I would agree an applicator is properly trained on a gun is a good gun. Having owned and used all of the guns over the years listed above, I would say from first hand experience there are some major differences. For example: Cost in replacement parts, O-Ring Kits, spray tips, check valves, etc… far less of an expense when compared. I can say being lighter and smaller makes the sprayers life a little easier. Able to change pattern size without disassembly is nice to. Atomization is defiantly comparable to the GX-7. Having this affect out of an air purged gun has been absent when compared to the other guns. Have you noticed that the air ports are straight through from the air cylinder to the trigger assembly? I would say that’s new and unique. Revolutionary? Might be a little strong but they do have a good start. The gun dose perform and sprays nice, develops pattern on the spot, better response, atomization for air purged an A+, straight through air ports, easy to clean and less overall cost compared to other guns. We ran the CS for about 2 years, can’t say I miss it, cost too much for the cartridges and replacement parts, replacing the plunger, inter check valves, “inter check valves and ports are to small” + having secondary check valves just adds more cost let alone the price of Graco O-Rings! Not to say at all it doesn’t or didn’t work for us. I am just saying. Everyone has a preference for what they like and what works for them and there are no miracle spray guns. Bottom line, clean warm material, clean machine filters, temps, pressure and proper training all spray guns will perform. It’s just a matter of how well and at what cost? As the saying goes, You can’t judge a book by its cover. The AP-2 works for us.
