ASM/Graco Contractor 500 Airless Spray Gun, 2&4 Finger (with 517 Tip)
ASM 289316 Airless Spray Gun with Tip
Brand New with One year ASM/Graco Warranty.
(Gleem Paint is an authorized ASM service center)
Gleem's Info:This ASM 500 Contractor gun is basically the "Graco Graco Contractor" gun, but built to use the standard ASM, Wagner, and SprayTech type gun filters and tips. (FYI: ASM is owned by Graco; ASM's official name is "ASM Graco") In short,, we like this gun a lot. It is lightweight, has a nice feel in the hand, and has a built in swivel. It makes an excellent contractor grade gun and due to our special price it is affordable for a consumer who is looking to upgrade to a nicer quality gun for their worn out "consumer" gun. The selling points on this gun almost endless; it has the swivel, uses the same filters as all Wagner/SprayTech guns, includes a Uni-Tip base, 517 reversible spray tip, and is a true quality rebuild-able gun. The "smartest" feature we see on this particular 500 gun special is it includes a 4-finger trigger with the 2-finger Gun package. This makes the customer's decision of "Which trigger should I buy" obsolete. The user can try both, and decide after testing for themselves.

(In lab tests this 500 gun's needle and seat lasted 20% longer than ASM 400, and up to 25% longer than competitor's equivalent guns.)
- 12% Less Trigger Pull than existing ASM Airless Guns
- Hook at top of gun for hanging
- Built in Gun Swivel
This is a Very handy feature!

How does this gun compare to Wagner's guns?
We would rate it in right next to the G10XL. (And this is very hard for us to do,, as we LOVE the G10XL.)
This 500 Contractor gun would be a excellent upgrade for someone needing to replace a Wagner Paint Crew Gun, GX-05, VGX, G-06, GX-06, G-07, GX-07, GX08, G10, or any Graco Airless gun. ( If you rather have a Wagner/SprayTech branded airless gun, you will find those back in our airless spray gun main section.
F.A.Q. on this gun:
Q: Will this gun work with a Wagner XXX Airless sprayer?
A: Yes, this ASM 500 (and any other airless spray gun we sell) will work with any Wagner XXX Airless sprayer. However Note: You can not put a bigger tip (.0XX") size than the max tip rating for any given pump. This gun comes with a 517 (.017”) tip, which the max tip of lets say a Wagner 505, 9140/1420 770 can handle is a .015” tip; therefore you would need to pick or purchase a smaller tip (like a 413 or 415) to work with a 505,9140/1420, 770 sprayer.

Q: What’s the difference in this 500 gun vs the ASM 300 on your site?
A: 1) The ASM 500 has less trigger pull. 2) The 500 has a longer lasting needle and diffuser (main wear parts on an airless gun) that contractors who spray a lot of paint will enjoy.
This is a quality, rebuild-able gun (not a cheap gun that you must throw away when worn), you can find parts at this link: ASM 500 Gun Parts
This 500 spray gun comes with a 517 reversible tip. If you want to purchase additional tips with this gun you could order either of the following:

This gun includes a white/medium filter in the gun handle, additional filters are located at this link: Gun filters
