Worst fuel gun ever. Leaks horribly and breaks almost instantly.

Anybody have the Novarossi? Feedback please. It's pricey but if it doesn't leak, well worth it.

I have heard good and bad about almost every gun out there. There is a guy on flea bay selling the pro-line for 14.95. I bought one I figure it's worth a try for 14.95.

its opaque not Not clear....so with most colored fuel's and im sure even the lighter Nitrotane/Odonnell you would be able to see no problem.

Would it be a good idea before using a new fuel gun to take it apart and lube the seals to help from leaking? lol I know everyone wil lprob say just get one that doesnt leak....lol Im just thinking about preventative maintenance.... or just use it as is?

I have a Losi gun I have been using for over a year, no leaks. I bought a rebuild kit just because it comes with a nice cap. I have not changed the seals and it doesnt even drip. Best fuel gun.
