Article: Pistol Style Trigger Gun
Perhaps 95% of all machines are sold with this type of trigger gun. It is the industry standard. This gun works well when used with a straight lance, or equipped with only a nozzle for close work, it allows the operator to hold the trigger open without undo stress on the forearm and wrist. For operators using a lance with a 20 to 45 degree bend at the nozzle end, this gun isn't the best choice. Using a pistol style gun combined with a lance with a bend requires the operator to work with the wrist and forearm twisted. This becomes very tiring and painful over time. Because a 45 degree bend on a lance provides even contact of the nozzle fan to the surface, consider using a straight through style gun.
