SureShot is the leader in refillable, rechargeable, completely portable compressed air sprayers. The Model A1000G is lightweight at 2lbs and is an inexpensive way to apply bulk chemicals like cleaners, degreasers, penetrating oils, solvents, and lubricants however the A model is should not be used with water or water based materials and is not recommended for use with paint. Since it does not use aerosol it is environmentally friendly. Since 1932 Milwaukee Sprayer Manufacturing Company has been manufacturing SureShot sprayers. They always have been and will continue to be made in the USA.
