Air Gun: DeVilbiss

Part of a good finish into the wood or the application of automotive paint, much depends on the gun used, among other factors.
Speaking of brands, DeVilbiss, is for me the best brand of air guns in Mexico. But talk of quality is also talk about cost, and the products of this brand is expensive in comparison with the other brands mentioned.

DeVilbiss MGQ-500

Currently this model is the most sold in Mexico, it can get at Homedepot or a Wal-Mart.

For continuous escape of air compressors and small storage tank without air. Has a single control-flow fan. It works by pressure and must not exceed 40 lbs of pressure. The current vessel is not the original, is a reinforced Adir says holds up to 70 Lbs.

The fluid tube is plastic and is inserted under pressure, can be rotated to easily change the position of application.

This gun has about 12 years of use, when I was a replacement for the pistol, we do not find it available, but if you found and include nozzle, needle, spring and a complete set of all packaging.

I think the general problem in all this type of gun is the subject of the packs, since the originals did not even have enough strength andalusia tinh, causing to be made larger and may have to be replaced continuously.

The material of the nozzle and needle are made of steel, like all the mobile parts. The body is brushed aluminum.

My rating for this gun is a 9.8


  • The quality of the range exceeds any other in the same category.
  • Great Durability
  • Compatibility of some components such as gaskets and glass vessel with other brands.


  • Availability of spare parts such as nozzles only authorized distributor.


Pistola de Aire: DeVilbiss

Parte de un buen acabado en la madera o en la aplicación de pintura automotriz, depende mucho de la pistola que utilicemos, entre otros muchos factores.
Hablando de marcas, DeVilbiss, es para mi la mejor marca de pistolas de aire en México. Sin embargo hablar de calidad es hablar tambien de Costo, y los productos de esta marca son caros en comparativa con las otras marcas que menciono.

DeVilbiss MGQ-500

Actualmente este modelo es de los mas comercializados en México, lo puedes conseguir en Homedepot o en un Wal-Mart.

Para escape continuo de aire y compresores pequeños sin tanque de almacenamiento de aire. Tiene un solo control de fluido-abanico. Funciona por presion y no se deben de sobrepasar las 40 Lbs de presion. El Vaso actual no es el original; es un Adir reforzado que dice aguanta hasta 70 Lbs.

El tubo de alimentación de fluido es de plastico, y va insertado a presion, se puede girar facilmente para modificar la posición de aplicación.

Esta pistola tiene unos 12 años de uso, cuando fui por un repuesto para la pistola, no pense encontrarlo disponible, pero si lo encontre e incluye boquilla, aguja, resorte y un juego completo de todos los empaques.

Creo que el problema en general de todo este tipo de pistolas es el tema de los empaques, ya que nisiquiera los originales tienen la resistencia al tinher suficiente, lo que provoca que se hagan grandes y haya que sustituirlos continuamente.

El material de la boquilla y la aguja son de acero, al igual que todas las piezas móbiles. El cuerpo es de aluminio pulido.

Mi calificacion para esta pistola es de un 9.8


  • La calidad del abanico supera a cualquier otra en la misma categoria.
  • Gran Durabilidad
  • Compatibilidad de algunos componentes como empaques de vaso y vasos con otras marcas.


  • Disponibilidad de repuestos como boquillas solamente en distribuidores Autorizados.

Just a thought, but next time it would be easier to read if you broke the spanish and english into 2 separate sections than every other sentence…
