Someone local has a Model 50-6609 army spray compressor with a spare brand new engine listed for sale on craigslist. I can't find a lot of information about it anywhere online. The manual says that it can power two spray guns at the same time, so you'd think it makes a fair amount of cfm. I need it like a hole in the head, but the price is right. Does anyone here know anything about it? High cfm, but low pressure? Would it be good for anything else besides painting? :shrug:

The compressor part of that is a Smith V230- looks like they are still being made today, under a different brand.

Yes, the twin cylinder ones look just like the compressor on this unit. It has some sort of parallel twin gas motor to run it.\

Looks like a mil standard engine 2a016III. One on it, and one in a crate new.

Looks like Saturn surplus still sells the complete motor for $250. But the guy only wants $200 for the pair.....
