Sprayit SP-33500 Review Summary:
When you want a spray paint gun to cover any job, this kit delivers — you get two of the most popular guns from Sprayit — the SP-33500K and the SP-33000K. Simply choose the paint, stain, or varnish of your choice, add a compressor capable of 30 psi, and you’re ready to color your world. It’s suitable for painting large surfaces, like walls or fences, and smaller or more intricate work on furniture, metalwork, cars, boats, and more.
Both guns operate on LVLP (low volume, low pressure) technology, allowing you to get great results from a compressor at a low psi. Very little overspray is produced, meaning your project doesn’t get spoiled with drips, the air around you doesn’t get polluted, and you save on paint.
A one-piece, aluminum construction features in both spray guns, so neither is heavy to hold, letting you paint for hours without fatigue. The smaller 33500 is great for getting into areas that are hard to reach or for delivering finer detail, while the 33000 is better suited for larger projects.
All the interchangeable fluid needles and spray nozzles are stainless steel, which helps resist corrosion. Separate controls are incorporated on the guns for adjusting the airflow, paint delivery, and fan pattern, giving you a precise and accurate spray. The kit has accessories for dismantling and cleaning the spray guns, and a carry case for transportation and storage.
The Sprayit brand is one of the oldest suppliers of spray guns in the painting industry. The company has been in operation since 1928, so has more than 90 years of experience backing its products.
Features and Benefits of the Sprayit SP-33500K
VLP — short for low volume, low pressure technology — dispenses atomized paint with minimal overspray. It offers a high quality finish in less time than a paint brush or roller, and saves you money with less paint wastage.
You can regulate the flow of air, fluid, and spray pattern, in order to obtain the perfect balance for your particular project. Most modern coatings, including varnishes, stains, and latex paints, can be applied without thinning them down. It’s efficient and gives a flawless finish — good enough to satisfy the home painting enthusiast, newbie painters, and professional painters alike.
You do need an air compressor, however, which is an added expense if you don’t already own one.
Aluminum Spray Guns and Stainless Steel Spray Tips
The Sprayit 33500 features two one-piece aluminum spray guns and four stainless steel needles and nozzles. This makes them lightweight, durable, and resistant to corrosion.
The nozzles are interchangeable between the two spray guns and come in sizes ranging from 0.8 mm to 2 mm. The larger the spray tip, the thicker paint it will accommodate.
Three Adjustments for Versatility
When using the Sprayit SP 33500 or SP 33000, there are three adjustments you can utilize. With just a clockwise twist of the air volume knob you’re able to turn the air pressure down, or with a counter-clockwise turn, increase it.
The paint flow can be decreased or increased, giving less or more coverage. Finally, the fan pattern is adjustable, from a small circle to a wide oval. This gives you control over the paint distribution, depending on whether you’re working on detailed, intricate objects, or larger wider areas.
We should point out that there might be some trial and error to get all three adjustments just how you want them — so be prepared to practice before starting your project.
Cleaning Kit Included
Cleaning your spray gun after every use is imperative, to make sure dried paint doesn’t block your spray gun. Failing to do this can result in deterioration sooner rather than later, and cause your gun to malfunction.
A cleaning kit and tools to dismantle the spray gun are included in the package. However, you might need to purchase some solvent as well, to ensure a thorough clean.
Storage and Carry Case
There’s nothing worse than not being able to find essential parts of any tools when you need them. You know you put them somewhere safe, but then forget where that was.
The Sprayit SP 33500 comes in a convenient plastic storage case with a section for everything that’s included. It also has a carry handle, making transportation easier..
What Users Say About The Sprayit SP-33500K?
Looking at what real users think about a product can give you a good indication whether it’s suitable for your needs. Let’s find out how people rate the Sprayit SP-33500K.
With its ease of use and paint-saving capacity, thanks to little overspray, this spray gun kit is a hit with both beginners and pros. The LVLP technology offers plenty of control, especially if you are new to paint spraying.
Satisfactory results have been achieved on cars, for primer, paint and sealing coats, as well as woodwork, furniture, and more. The fact that a small compressor is all that‘s needed to deliver enough spray power is also seen as a bonus.
On the downside, some find the carry case a little flimsy, and comment that the tools included aren’t of a high quality. It also could take some practice to get to grips with the various adjustments, to get the spray just right.

Alternatives to Sprayit SP-33500K
Maybe the Sprayit 33500 paint gun kit doesn’t tickle your fancy, and you feel there might be better alternatives. Here are some options you could consider.
Neiko HVLP Gravity Feed 31215A Air Spray Gun
Neiko brings us a spray gun with an all-steel body, brass paint cup, and stainless steel spray tip and needle. The package includes a cleaning brush, metal air regulator with gauge, and a multi-size wrench. This unit can be adjusted for spray pattern, paint delivery, and airflow, the same as the Sprayit guns.
Unlike the 33500, though, there is only one gun and one spray nozzle. However, you can choose the size you want, from 2 mm down to 1 mm.
- Only one nozzle, as opposed to four with the Sprayit.
- Durable brass paint cup.
- More budget-friendly than the Sprayit 33500.
- Needs a more powerful compressor.
Sprayit SP-31000 Spray Gun
Only one spray tip is included, unlike the four with the 33500, and there is no carry case. You do get a cleaning brush, but no additional tools are included.
- Lightweight, durable aluminum construction.
- Metal paint cup, as opposed to the plastic ones in the SP-33500K.
- No carry case, spare spray tips, or tools included.
Astro LVLP Spray Gun
You can choose from two sizes of stainless steel fluid tips and needles — either 1.3 mm or 1.4 mm. The fan pattern ranges are less than the maximum the Sprayit offers, at 4 inches to 7 inches wide. There is no carry case, cleaning tools, or air pressure gauge included.
- Durable and lightweight.
- Patented “air curtain” for less overspray.
- Air regulator, spare spray tips, cleaning tools and carry case not included.
Versatility for a wide range of projects comes from adjustable airflow, fluid delivery, and fan patterns — although this can take a little mastering. The minimal amount of overspray allows for more accuracy and less paint wastage. The guns can be used for painting trucks and cars, marine craft, furniture, woodwork, home interiors and exteriors, and more.
