what is the best air spraygun for spraying deck stain that's water based?

I Started brushing the stain on about 4hrs in both2 days for all that Igot little more than 2 10 ft sections of banister done its all those picketts that kill the time. I heard a low pressure paint gun can be used IS THAT a cup gun or a gravity feed?

    As mentioned, with an airless sprayer you need to mask, shield etc the over spray. Also the acrylic content is high & requires a heavy duty sprayer that's capable of drawing the material thru the sprayer. The hand held cup gun requires a lot of thinning to be able to spray.

    The link below shows the type a pro would use (if spraying) as brushing applies better coating.

    use a 4 inch whizz paint roller to apply the stain - it will go a lot faster than a brush - the problem with spraying is you need to shield everything else from overspray plus the wind will help you stain the whole neighborhood

    It's water based, use your pump-up weed sprayer.
