In the first place, a sandblasting gun from Walmec, which is made of metal and coated with rubber. It is significantly improves retention comfort. The gun is equipped with a tank for abrasive, placed below. The air flow through the channel creates a vacuum and pulls sand inward. The trigger is designed for two fingers. In order not to pinch the rest, a protruding stop is provided on the handle. The tank is made of aluminum and is resistant to damage during falls. The gun weighs 920 g and consumes 500 l of air per minute, therefore, such a sandblasting model will require a powerful compressor. To quickly free your hands, there is a hook on the back.
Reviews show that the gun cleans painted parts and rust is quite high quality, the metal remains completely clean, shines and does not have craters with corrosion. Due to nozzle diameter 6 mm and an air flow rate of 500 l / min, provides excellent performance (particles fly out with great force), so we recommend this sandblasting machine for professional operation and cleaning of surfaces with a large area of 3-5 m².
- shockproof housing;
- long term of operation;
- convenient to work due to low weight;
- 1000 ml abrasive bottle.

In second place is a similarly designed pistol from the brand ABAC. The sandblasting model is endowed with an aluminum tank, containing 1 liter of abrasive. Tank connection is carried out in one touch with a slight turn clockwise. Unlike previous gun, this sandblast needs less the amount of air (250 l / min vs 500 l / min), with equal pressure is 8 atm. Weighs an empty tool 590 g and it is convenient for them to manipulate when cleaning surfaces. In reviews, owners satisfied with the ease of operation of the sandblasting machine and light connecting the hose from the compressor to the handle. For this is provided type of rapid connection (Euro), so do not twist the fitting on the thread required.
We considered the best sandblasting gun in terms of indestructibility. The body of the sandblasting device is made completely made of metal and does not have plastic parts. Tool can withstand bumps, scratches and falls from a height of 1.2 m. If you need hardy and a simple model, pay attention to this one.
- the lower tank does not block the view to the operator;

The German brand “Metabo” offers a sandblasting model SSP 1000 with integrated bottom reservoir for abrasive. The gun has metal case coated with paint. There is a loop for hanging the tool on a hook. The device is equipped with direct-flow nozzle made of hardened steel, which extends the life snap. It is easy to remove the nozzle thanks to the embossed tip. The inventory weighs 700 g. The diameter of the air nozzle is 1/4 inches. For a minute, the device consumes 300 liters of air. Reviews show that a sandblasting gun cleans well not only even parts, but also constructions with corners and concave cavities.
Our experts have put the product on the list of the best because of the very convenient retention. The users in the reviews like the ergonomic shape, naturally lying in the hand. Another sandblasting model stands out the presence of three fittings for organizing a quick connection. This is convenient for interacting with different compressors.
- hardened steel spray nozzle;
- quick connection of the hose from the compressor;
- lower built-in tank does not block the view;
- well removes dirt in corners.

Mighty Seven SX-3102
The sanding unit from the American brand Mighty Seven has 700 ml lower tank and stainless steel tube through which small particles are absorbed. The gun is made by most of the plastic and endowed with a detailed shape with an angle 110º. Due to this, holding the tool is easy and does not require much twist the wrist when brushing the surface at the top. Users in the reviews note a convenient gun trigger, designed to be pressed with all fingers. This allows you to evenly distribute the load on the arm. Embossed handle contributes secure grip and does not slip. For a minute of operation, the gun consumes 113 liters of air. The nozzle diameter is 8 mm, but the performance it is low, so it’s better to use the product poorly for cleaning contaminated parts (clean from dirt, light rust, but paint disconnects poorly).
This sandblasting model is one of the easiest to categories. The weight of an empty gun is only 350 g. This achieved through the use of plastic parts. From metal there is only a channel and a nozzle. If you need to work long hours sandblasting machine at a height, then with this less tired hands.

Rock FORCE RF-HSB-II
This sandblasting model is the “brainchild” of the Belarusian brand Rock FORCE, but manufactured at production facilities in Taiwan They decided to execute it almost entirely from plastic, which protects the housing from corrosion. Abrasive Storage Tank material is located on top. You can fill the sand through the neck in the back, equipped with a swivel cover. In front is flow regulator. The gun operates with a pressure of 5.9 atm, but this does not affect performance because the nozzle diameter narrowed here and is 5 mm. Per minute sandblasting process 250 liters of air are consumed.
This model is one of the most resistant to overheating. Her the case is equipped with many slots, increasing the area for heat transfer. Air passage through the raised surface of the gun contributes to the removal of excess temperature, therefore sandblasting the device can be operated for 6-8 hours without stops.

The penultimate place was given by experts to the sandblasting gun cleaning from the “Matrix”. The model does not have its own tank for abrasive, so it weighs only 1.2 kg, and its price is much more affordable other competitors. The gun itself is made of metal and is resistant to damage. For a minute it consumes 600 liters of air with a pressure of 8 atm. Case dimensions are 370x270x30 mm. In reviews customers are satisfied with quality cleaning, even if applied ordinary sifted sand from the quarry. 6mm nozzle hard score and it will last a long time due to the performance of durable steel.
This gun is easy to sandblast for 8-12 hours, since the tank is not attached to the body and the operator it is not required to maintain its weight constantly. Instead of staffing reservoir 700-1000 ml, you can use a bucket of sand for 10-15 l The product is optimal for sandblasting of large volumes, for example car bodies, because you need a minimum of stops for sand replenishment. But short communication between the gun and capacity requires more effort when changing locations. Some masters advise replacing a regular hose with a regular oxygen hose, 2 m long to increase maneuverability a little.
- quality fittings included;
- well sucks sand from a bucket through a hose;
- durable metal nozzle;
- hard to score throughput.
- need a powerful compressor due to air consumption of 600 l / min;
- maneuverability is limited;
- have to carry a container of sand, since the regular the intake hose is short.

Embossed surface handles improves grip reliability. To the ring finger does not pinched with a trigger, the handle is equipped with a separator. Hang up sandblasting tool can be looped onto the hook, quickly releasing hands. Bottom sand container holds 1 liter of abrasive and does not close review to the operator. The gun is resistant to damage when dropped, since it has no plastic parts at all.
We left this gun in the best category because of the nozzle. It here it is not straightforward, but conical in shape. Such a configuration provides acceleration of sand grains and their twisting, and this increases the strength sandblasting at the exit. Given the nozzle diameter of 5 mm, the optimum ratio of air flow (340 l) is obtained, working material and performance.
- there is a hole in the housing for hanging;
- the raised surface of the handle increases the grip reliability;
- ergonomic shape of the handle reduces fatigue;
- the lower tank does not close the view to the operator.
- threaded hose connection slows down the process of connecting to compressor
