I know this is a really old post but I'm hoping for some updated information.

The SP-2001 had a 6 pin connector vs a 4-pin connector but Thermal Arc apparently at one time sold an adapter part # 171312.
I can't seem to find any sales listings for an SP-2001 however the post I quoted from TRG-42 indicates that the Lincoln Magnum SG might be the same as either the SP-2000 or the SP-2001. Unfortunately I can't find any current sales information for the Magnum SG. However I do find a Lincoln Magnum 100SG Spool Gun K2532-1 that is available at a reasonable price.
What are the odds that I can buy a Magnum 100SG and get it to work on my BetaMig 200? I don't mind making adapter connectors/cables etc. I just want to make sure the gun would work with my welder.
Also I'm assuming that the Remote WFS mentioned by TRG-42 means "Remote Wire Feed System". Looking at the Magnum 100SG it sure looks like it has the Remote WFS.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
