dual action means you control air and paint, single is air only.

dual action means that you could control the amount of paint you shoot out of the airbrush and single action you could only shoot at one steady rate

20psi is a little low, definately wont work to spray faskolor. Id get one of the nicer testors aztec dual action airbrushes and see if you like it, if you di make consider an Iwata. For compressor I use a campbell and hausfield with a PSI regulator and moisture trap.
