Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 29, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. October 31, 2009
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Over 10000 1-1/2" staples and not a single misfire I've shoot over 10,000 1-1/2" staples and no misfire yet. August 19, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. January 9, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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 awsome works great love it perfect weight and size i had bought a dewalt and returned it because it failed after 30 shots never again on dewalt July 14, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 7, 2015
