    Iwata airbrushes all have the teflon needle bearing seal.
    You can also look into the Procon airbrushes too.
    But you mention priming and for that I use an HVLP spray gun.

    I would look hard at the Iwata HP-BCS for what you want to do....

    Youd probably have to look pretty hard to find any new brush with a non ptfe seal.

    I still want to give a warning.
    There are also a few rubber rings in the new airbrush.
    Above the air valve in the airbrush is a ring that is usually just made of rubber.
    It is not a problem with normal cleaning and spraying.
    But don't throw your entire airbrush in the thiner.

    If the Iwata is a little too expensive, possibly look at the Creos / GSI / Mr Hobby range. Very cheap airbrushes can come with a host of problems that make life even harder for somebody learning. The Neo for Iwata is a pretty decent brush by all accounts.

    A 250 would suit primer well.

    The Talon line by Paasche seems to get a lot of ridicule here and not for no reason. That said I started this journey around a year ago and have spent lots of money trying a lot of different brushes. I’ve found that I picked up my Paasche before all the others. I have large hands so they fit me well and love the heck out of them.

    I have to agree with Porkrind on the Paasche Talon, I use the Raptor with the small color cup. Mine is a keeper with Mojo 3 parts added and does quite well. Do yourself a favor and do a search on eBay for AIRBRUSH and see what comes up. I bet you'll find some deals close to home.

    Procon platinum series. Best brushes I have used, at a staggeringly low price.
