RE: The tariff classification of an air spray gun from Taiwan.

Dear Ms. Boyle:

In your letter dated July 16, 1991 on behalf of Builders Square Inc. you requested a tariff classification ruling.

You describe the item as a light duty air spray gun made of plastic. A photograph you submitted with your request notes that the item is a bleeder-type spray gun with continuous air flow and is ideal for stains, lacquers and enamels. It further states that the spray gun is to be used with any continuous-running compact compressor up to 3/4 horsepower, delivering at least 0.8 cubic feet of air per minute at 10 pounds per square inch.

The applicable subheading for the air spray gun will be 8424.20.9000, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for other spray guns and similar appliances. The rate of duty will be 3.7 percent ad valorem.

This ruling is being issued under the provisions of Section 177 of the Customs Regulations (19 C.F.R. 177).

A copy of this ruling letter should be attached to the entry documents filed at the time this merchandise is imported. If the documents have been filed without a copy, this ruling should be brought to the attention of the Customs officer handling the transaction.
