Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by marios did not work
The problem is that the long end of the rivet did not go into the tool. It had to be banged in to go in all the way. All the youtube videos show the long end very easily fitting into the tool. No opposition at all, and the rivet falls out if you don't put any pressure on the handles. You had to bang the rivet to get it into the tool. In trying to fix the problem which I determined was too much tension on the spring inside the tool, I cut off a small section of the spring, but that ruined the tool, so now I will buy another brand.
Don't buy this tool.

I'm currently on my second one of these. With the first one I bought, the stem from the rivet got stuck in it on the first rivet I tried to use (and I'm using 1/8" rivets, which the tool is supposed to handle just fine). I exchanged it, thinking it was a defective unit. The second one I got won't cut the stems off of the rivets, so it doesn't work either. Save yourself some time and get a tool that actually works instead. (On the upside, my store's customer service has been very easy to deal with so far.) I guess there's a reason this model is cheaper than all the others; you get what you pay for.

This rivet gun absolutely WILL accept 5/32" rivets. I am using this tool with stanley rivets part PAA58-5B and if you use the 3/16" head, the 5/32" rivet, while a bit wobbly, will work just fine. I have used this on my hobie 16 and a couple times to replace rivets in my car door. Have only used aluminum rivets, hopefully it'll work for stainless as well.

Package printing indicates operating instructions can be found in this website. This is false. No such instruction could be found.

not as many moving parts as other riviters. Have had my other more expensive riviters fall apart or stop working soon after getting them. This unit is more rugged and has a small head great for tight areas.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by FrostyWinters Wrong Description
Spec says this tool accepts 5/32" rivets. It doesn't. Packaging only says 1/8" and 3/16". I even tried to place 5/32" to make sure it wasn't a printing error. Not so. Simply won't fit with the two heads that came with it.

The product seemed good for the price, but once I got it out of the box I realized the head was bent such that the rivets kink over at an odd angle as they aren't being pulled straight.
