Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by CarpetSwimmer Works alright
Bought it on sale and it works alright however it has jammed a couple of times on me and had to use screw driver and needle nose pliers to remove the jammed staples.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by SukiSue T-25 stapler jams way too often
We are a garage door and opener installation company since 1991. Arrow staplers have always been our tool of choice, until the last few years. Our installers refuse to put them in their trucks anymore, too frustrating to deal with the jamming all the time and we use only #256 staples. And I am frustrated with the quantity of T-25s I've bought over the years, thinking that they were being abused, I've since realized, that's not the case, and the guns are the problem, or the staples. Please, go back to the drawing board. I have a box full of "dead" T-25s.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by bobw This is a silly product that causes a lot of irritation to its users.
I purchased it about 18 months and it has never been useful to me. It constantly jams. The local dealer is aware of the situation and has tried to provide assistance. The irritating fact is that it is still on the store shelves.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 Quality Issue with the new gun
I had used these guns for years in my low voltage installs. Older models that had no cushioning material on the handle worked great for years on end.
This new model jams, and from reading others reviews I am not alone with the same problem.
This is a quality issue I am sure, or someone "improved" this model.
On another hand not to bash the unions much but with many manufacturers that are unionized quality somehow declines over time magically. Just saying. Maybe some new quality control procedures are in order at the Arrow company.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rafy light weight and very easy to operate.
Excellent in small places. Lightness allowed movement of items working on.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by shaler78 New T-25 guns constantly jamb.
I am also a garage door installer trying to use these newer staplers for run garage door opener wiring. Well the one I've had for more than twenty years has worked without a hitch or any pampering the whole life of the tool. I have been having all kinds of jambing issues with the newer ones I've purchased over the past five years. I can forget about using these to staple wire to treated lumber or plaster ceilings They constantly jamb and have to be taken apart to clear the jamb. I've wasted more time and staples with the new ones, so much so, that I've given up on them (more than six in the past five years) and either use my old one or resort to hand stapling which I hate for obvious reasons. Quality is less than poor!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Sharpie If it didn't break so much it would be the perfect staple gun
I'm an alarm technician and I use this gun about two or three times a week. In the last few months I've had to go through about three of them. They keep jamming up and having all sorts of issues. I'm using arrow staples and I'm careful when installing new staples not to jam a new line over an old line. Even with all the tender loving care I can give this wire tacker they still break down. I would recommend to Arrow to re-engineer this gun or your going to lose a lot of business.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Mike24 Jams all of the time
I have been installing low voltage wiring for over 40 years. The older models worked flawlessly however the new T259 has done nothing but jam on every 3RD staple from the day I bought it. It is frustrating to have to remove the jammed staples which ads hours to simple installations.
