Dylan,

Radnor, doesn't make the gun, they sell a gun private labeled for them, before you buy, check the consumables, are they Miller style, Tweco style or some off brand that might be a problem at a later date. I've had 2 Radnor guns, they were okay, but one took Tweco consumables, easy to find, the other on an older Hobart, took some off brand consumables, very very hard to find, and because of that were also expensive.

If you are interested in a Tweco style gun, check out the Weldmark brand Mig gun they're manufactured by Tweco and are at a better price point. These guns use Tweco parts and are quality, I am extremely satisfied with mine.
