Iwata Custom Grip Handle

First Look

Here is an interesting conversion for your Iwata Revolution TR1 or TR2 airbrush - an ergonomic grip handle. Produced by Iwata, this gives you a pistol grip to go with your trigger-activated TR1/TR2. This conversion will also work for the Kustom TR and TH airbrushes as well.


The conversion is simple - remove the air hose from the bottom of your airbrush, screw on the extension shaft on the left, remove the retaining nut on the bottom, slide the handle over the shaft until seated snugly with the trigger base of the airbrush, replace the retaining nut to hold the handle on the shaft, and reattach your air hose. The result is a more comfortable and intuitive way to hold and aim your airbrush, especially for pistol shooters.

Definitely recommended for the more demanding user!

My sincere thanks to Tom Grossman and Iwata Media for this review sample!
