    Mig Gun Suppliers

    Anyone have any input on After Market Mig gun suppliers like Profax, Weld Mark, American Weld Quip. American Torch Tip, CMI? According to web sites, American Torch Tip and CMI are USA made quality Mig guns where the others are import. Any owners of these out there?

    Weldmark is made by Tweco. Tweco markets the same gun under another Tweco sub brand. They are budget priced compared to the full priced Tweco guns. I use a Weldmark 200 and 250 amp gun all the time for Self shielded fluxcore. I prefer the feel over the Radnor gun. Last time I looked they were still made in Mexico. I assume Bernard is still USA and is high quality, just pricey.

    Tweco 400 guns are the " STANDARD" in the industry hands down......Parts are easy to get and don't cost an arm and leg and the guns are heavy duty to stand up to high heat all day use and operator abuse.......

    I'm very familiar with all of the old school brands Tweco, Bernard, Binzel, Oxo, Tregaskiss etc. Question was has anyone tried the Aftermarket suppliers.
