    Best bang for the buck mig gun for ln25

    Looking for a 250 300 amp 15ft length mig gun for my ln25. What is the best I can get that won't go over 250.00? I use 0.35 mostly but want 0.45 capabilities

    I think I found it.

    Check and make sure.

    BTW,
    There's quite a few of them.
    Very simple to look on eBay....
    Just a couple welders, big hammers, grinders, and torches.
    Work will free you.

    I've had one of these for 13-years now, not one ounce of trouble. Nice and light too.

    I would look on E bay for a Bernard Q-300.Most have the Miller end but the adapter is cheap. I have a few that I got for less than $ 100 each.

    x2 on what he said. Bernard Q gun with Centerfire consumables, any gun you use after this will feel like a childs toy compared to it. These were $400 guns, ive seen them occasionally for around $100

    If you go with the Tweco gun, you'll need a Tweco to Lincoln adapter. Here is what it looks like, but I can't find any numbers on it.

    If you go with a Tweco gun, they sell an adapter to fit an LN-25.

    @ CEP - you def know Lincoln guns. Question. Why no love for interface'n a Bernard gun to an LN-25? Configuration challenge? Bernard sells power pins for most, if not all, welding machines. In the shop here, switched to Bernard guns for my BLUE gear. The centerfire consumables are nice. Don't own any RED equipment. Just a question for edification bro.

    I've been using Tweco guns since the 1970s, never any problems with them.
    Never used a Bernard gun, but also never heard a bad word about them. Just haven't had the opportunity to run one is all.

    If I read the Tweco PDF file correctly it is part number Tweco LAK-354. Here is a link to weldwarehose.com. But you may want to call and confirm it is the correct part!

    This looks like a cheaper version, but looks to be the same thing.
