RE: The tariff classification of a spray gun kit from Taiwan.

Dear Mr. Hoffacker:

In your letter dated December 2, 1999, on behalf of Consolidated Stores, Inc. you requested a tariff classification ruling. You submitted a photograph with you request, which will be returned to you along with this binding ruling.

The article in question is a hand-controlled, button-operated spray gun, identified as the Air Brush Kit, item number ATBR009ABA. The kit is imported in a blister-pack containing a nylon air-brush spray gun, five foot polyurethane tube, brass adapter, steel wrench, propel regulator, and two glass jars.

The applicable subheading for the air-spray gun kit 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 free.
