I use two guns – both gravity feed HVLP run off the compresser. The reason I like these is that you can adjust the pressure for different viscosities. Small one and two stage dedicated HVLP systems will either work, or not. The only option is to upgrade to a larger machine.
I have the Porter Cable gun which runs $100, and comes with a cleaning kit and air regulator.
The other gun is a Wood River (Woodcraft) and only costs $40. They both work great and lay out a professional finish with lacquer, poly, and shellac. A 1.5 mm tip and nozzle set is included for spraying these types of finishes. If you want to spray paint, add the 2.0 mm tip and nozzle set ($10).
I have been using mine for years, with no plans of changing.

Good luck!
