I know most everyone has a HLVP spray gun but will a old siphon gun will work with a 1.4mm tip?

Sure . That will work fine as long as your compressor will put out enough air. Most of those style guns need at least 50psi for a solid color and 65psi for metallic but that depends on the type of paint. Read the can, lower pressures will work but you will get orange peel. I have an old Binks with that size tip and my compressor puts out 8cfm and works good.
