    There was one on my KF model 1 when i bought it, but i removed it cause didnt feel like carring around 21lbs of dead weight, plus it was almost 25yrs old so i put it out in the yard and set it off, wasnt anything to brag about when i did. Hahahahaaa

    Ill bet it just unscrews but been together so long it going to take so force to unscew, i also know that they sometimes use amset screw in the middle of the topcap to lock it to the barrel so dont come apart durring use. Set screw should b easy to c tho. Send me a bunch of good pic via text and ill c if i can help figure it out. Ill b at work today so wont b around home. Take care Jim

    Well i really cant say which to buy, i only get into HF when im in Louisianna visiting Mom&Dad, here in Fairbanks there is no HF, lot of the most important thigs to look for is the size of the orface in the spray tip, bigger ones r for primer/sealers or filler primer, id have to go look at my FAVORITE gun that ive been useing for the last 10+ yrs. but its a Sharpes brand from NAPA

    Hey if i was u id step up to med weight fabric, i was going to use light weight but when lookin, comparing, and thinking of off airport flyin, med is better i think, stronger longer lasting to i think. But light weight tapes r ok on the med fabric and depending on what ur covering the light weight will flex and lay down better, I did both my wings total job for $793.00 i think i wrote up info in my spread on that, time it took and materials list totals. 
    dont buy to cheap of a spraygun ull regret it down the road. harbor freight has some good cheap ones 
    Use only non died maskin tape if ur paint light colors. Tan/ brown tape
    dont forget the Poly Fiber Users Book. Lots of good info

    So for all that would b $792.00? Hahahahahahahhaahahaaaaaa!!!! Total crazy, so do u know what u want for it? I dont need it but thought b smart to have a spare setup on the shelf incase one of my two birds have a problem down the road.  But im not tire kicking either. Got some cash in hand these days.
