So there are these two airbrushes; they both seem very similar -but does the different trigger justify the extra price?

Is there anything else these differ?

(Truth be told I'd need an easy-to-use general airbrush that can do both fine lines and wide spray - the 105 seems to fill the bill.)

The difference is not just in the trigger but also in the finish (not so important) but also in the tumb rest and especially the MAC valve...I buy separate for my 105 the trigger and tumb rest and MAC valve on the quick disconnect

And is it worth to buy the more expensive airbrush?

The nozzle is also smaller for finer lines. I believe the nozzle and needle are .3 where-as the standard 105 is set-up with a .5 nozzle and needle.

Check out Dons review of the 105.
