What paint gun to use with Acrylic paint?

Iv heard some people saying that some spray gun tips aren't good to use with Acrylic so im just curious.

2 mm is too big for acrlic but is ok to spray your primers with and most people say 1.4 is too small for acrylic but perfect for 2k.. You should be using a 1.8 tip for base and clear coats. However i bought an expensive 1.8mm tip gun that worked ok but not briliant and accidently dropped it so i bought a 1.4 gun just to spray a few bits and pieces and it actually came out a heap better than the 1.8 but u just need to be carefull that you thin it down enough so it will pass freely through the smaller tip..
Im sure some people will disagree but thats just my experience

Keep in mind that primers are abrasive so dont go using your good colour gun to put on primers.
Keep a decent gravity feed gun for your colours and clears (seperate guns if you can... just in case). And keep another for primers.
I have 2 mini's that are 1mm (used for AutoAir waterbourne acrylics), for Uro's a dedicated clear gun that is 1.4, another for base and colours, and a siphon feed 2mm for primers.
