+1 on the Cox Powerflow gun:

Widely available, affordable (£17 to £19), but widely copied. Often badly. If it doesn't say "Cox" on the gun, then it isn't, so don't buy it! Mine is now about 3 years old. Oh, did I mention that it's British? :thumbright: :huray:

You do need to clean them from time to time - and scrape the rust off the rod/sand off with some alox scratch

This is the best gun I've EVER used, its solid as can be, nice and cheap and has 3 plunger rods, it's quite heavy but you can feel the quality, I think the only thing that would bend or break it would be if I ran over it with the van...

That's the one I have, I got tired of the welds cracking on the cheaper ones and as you say that's pretty tough. :thumbleft:
