Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by floridacracker another great bostitch air tool
I added this model last week to my arsenal of other bostitch nailers. It was on clearance for $71.00 but had to buy the display model....haggled with them a bit and walk out paying $60.00 for it. I've never had a problem with any of my nailers some have over 10k brads fired through them not a single problem. I love their oiless engines - no more oil stains around the nail hole! To the reviewer that said you have to use bostitch staples that is simply not true. I shoot portal cable staples currently because thats all HD had in stock. I even fired 30 or so HF horrible china staples with no problem. I didn't realize how big of a deal it was with no 'no fire when emoty' feature until i ran out of staples....that is a really nice feature.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RickT4 Bostitch SX1838K Stapler
I've had my Bostitch stapler for a week now. I really like it, it's easy to load and staples great. It's replacing 1 I can't find staples for anymore.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Michael SX 1838 K REVIEW
I had a SX150 Bostitch for 6 years and wore it out, currently in for overhaul. I replaced it with the *5-STAR* Ridgid. I wasted my time purchasing that one. I bought the current model Bostitch 1838K and thus far it is working great. I will update this as time rolls on.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Skepticbuyer 18-GAUGE 1-1/2 IN. NARROW CROWN FINISH STAPLER
Bought a Porter Cable combo kit which had a TS056 stapler. Stapler was very picky as how you apply it to a surface or it misfires, a lot. Got fed up so I went to Home Depot to purchase another stapler. I handled the Bostitch and it felt great. The display information was impressive too. Good warranty. Came with 1/4 inch narrow crown 1 inch long staples to try out. Used almost all of them with out a jam or misfire. Good quality, good craftsmanship, good performance, has a plastic hook and came with a molded plastic carrying case. Now I'm using 1/4 inch narrow crown 1/2 inch long staples and going to town insulating my garage without a glitch. The other stapler will be collecting dust.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Rick Seems to be not quite powerful enough. Had to run it over recommended PSI to get a countersink
Works as intended. Was hoping to get a cheaper model. You must use Bostitch staples and not generic. Only come in two size boxes 1,000 or like a billion. It would be nice to have an intermediate size as it will take my entire life to use the large box!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PURCHASING a very good product
This is the second stapler I have bought, the first lasted over five years. This is a very good and reliable product which is easy to use in a work environment. I would give it higher value rating but the staples are quite expensive to purchase for this stapler.
