Shocked 3M is letting them do this. Will be picking some up to check out.

I have a HF couple miles from me may have to check this out. I recently upgraded to the 2.0 but still have the 1.0 adapter for my Fuji gun.

This indicates why it exists - In the info for PPS 2.0, 3M says PPS is now about 20 years old which is long enough for patents on 1.0 to have expired. This opens up chances for HF and others to copy them.

This afternoon I ran over to the Harbor Freight near me and picked up the starter kit along with one of the adapters. I have an old AOM spray gun but the adapter works so I can use this without any trouble.

Here's a couple of pics:

I presume this won’t work on bottom fed guns, like a T70? I don’t see any pressurization line option.
