Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TheShadowInc Jams and delay on staple exit
Had a problem right from the beginning with this product; it would not load. Had to take it apart and reassemble. Used it and the 10th staple... jam... cleared it and continued the 5th staple it jammed. Used it for a good 3 weeks and had nothing but problems from jamming and delay in the staple exiting the unit.
Final solution, I returned for a refund and got a different staple gun.
Don't Waste Your Time Getting This One, the concept/Idea is great the idea of the staple coming out where it does, is why I tried the product out, but way to many flaws and my job took longer due to the thing not working right

This is a great stapler, ensures you apply pressure to the point the staple is going in rather than to the other end.
The staples always go in all the way unlike others where the staple sometimes is not quite all the way in because your not applying downward force to the impact side.
A warning with this stapler, if you are used to using the rear lever staplers, just keep in your mind that the staple comes out on the lever side! This is really important when stapling anything from below when your above.
That aside get this stapler you wont be sorry.

This is the most unreliable stapler ever used. I just finished putting up vapour barrier in my garage. I should be the pope with all of the praying I did praying for it would not jam, and a sailor for all of the swearing i did when it did--consistently.
Do not waste your time, money and patients.

Very disappointed with this product. Worked fine for about 10 staples then jammed up. This was during the first use.
Had to open the gun to eliminate the jam, but it kept coming back. Returned it for a refund.

Drive 5 staples, clear the jam. Drive 5 staples, clear the jam. Repeat every 5 staples. Return stapler to store the next day.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rocky28 Works great
Despite several harsh reviews, I found this to be an excellent product. I've had the other arrow staplers. They require quite a workout. Their springs were very tight and required a lot of force to get a staple in place. This one was a breeze to use. I stapled insulation into pine wood. The staples went in fully, first time, every time. With the handle at the top, force was directed over the staple point. There was no slipping as with other guns. It also required about 1/3 rd the force of other staplers.
There are 2 things to keep in mind. you must use t-50 staples. people experiencing jams are most likely not using t-50 OR forcing too many staples into the gun. If the spring is too tight, the striker will hit more than one staple and jam.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GreatNorthernHomeowner All hail the glorious, non-hand cramping stapler
You want to staple things? MANY things? Well, this is your stapler, my friend. No more will you get a cramped hand, leading you to give up on stapling all those flyers of your missing puppy to neighborhood telephone poles (Come home, McGruff!). The backward design takes a little bit getting used to if you've ever used a traditional staple gun before, but once you get the hang of it, you'll be stapling like a mad fiend, caught up in the furious high of attaching thin things to other things. Old staple guns will be relegated to history's scrap heap, along with telephone books, buggy whips, and whatever cavemen used to adhere things to cave walls. Bonus points for it being able to double as a brad nailer as well.
