The spray gun (gun portion and jar) measures approximately 8 inches high by 8 inches wide. The jar has a diameter of approximately 5 inches.

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