Same size as the gun that comes with the Miller 211 inverter, but available in 15' version.

I like the small guns but wanted the 15' version for the new 211. It appears that the model number means it will handle more amperage than the gun that came with the machine, but they look identical and feel the same.
ProsSmall and easy to hold and maneuver for smaller to medium welds. The trigger feels much nicer than the m10 gun on my old Miller 135 (I wore that trigger out and replaced it once in 15 years). 15' length is great to have, but the ground lead needs to be extended to match.
ConsThe gun can get warm when welding for long periods or at high settings, but I think a lot of the heat is radiating off the weld and getting my weak hand which I like to steer the gun with. It may be just fine for the 211 on hotter settings, if you can weld well without holding the neck of the gun. The fact that this gun was not a factory option with the Miller 211 inverter that was advertised to be designed to work with 15' guns. Miller has you in a tight spot so you either buy a longer miller gun for close to another $200 (I really like the miller guns) or try another brand which seems to be a choice that about half of people decide to go with. The gun is great, but their marketing and business practice feels like a bit of a stab in the back.............or wallet.
