Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tjr9 Great Buy!
I have to admit I was a little hesitant purchasing the cheapest finish nailer in the store (I also bought a very cheap compressor too) to add crown molding to my kitchen cabinets. But I was very surprised at how well the nail gun works. I even used it to put up some door trim, repair a couch (with the staples), and put up baseboard. I have never owned a finish nailer, but this thing has never misfired once, and almost always drove the nail to the appropriate depth - even into solid oak cabinets! I could not have been happier. The gun also seems pretty sturdy - it would surely suffer damage if you tossed it around, but what air tool wouldn't? I highly recommend this nail gun, especially for the price - it works great with the staples too. The only negative I can say is that the longest nail it will shoot is 1 1/4. I would have liked to maybe get some 1 1/2 or 2" nails, but it works fantastic and I can't complain for the price!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by handyman23 This is a great air nailer/stapler. I was impressed how it worked and very easy to use. Works well on crown molding and other around the house small projects. Very great tool for the money.

I've put 6,000 staples through this stapler so far (pool table felt, a bonus room full of kraft paper backed insulation to studs, and now 1/4 lauan underlayment). The stapler has only jammed 1 time. The tool does misfire, but I think a lot of that has to do with the speed I try to operate it at.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pikaziotype good value, but not for the proffesional
A good product from Campbell Hausfeld, this nailer/stapler is certainly sufficient for the DIY-er and those who do not plan to use it much. It is relatively cheap by comparison to it's competitors and comes with brad nails, staples, nailer oil and hex wrenches for maintenance.The nailer also includes a quick-clear front end, in the case of a jam. This allows you to remove any material that gets stuck in the nose if you do have a jam.
It's not very loud so you don't have to worry about killing your ears when using it.The adjustable depth control works very well and allows you to drive fasteners to flush or above/ below and is very consistent. Has a durable powder coat finish and seems to be well constructed.
That being said i would not say to abuse it, because it does not seem to be extremely well built and i would not recommend it to the professional.
The magazine has a latch that keeps it locked when you load it, and it seems like it might break if hit in just the right way.
The rubber grip on the handle is not secured to it in any way, and it moves around if you twist it. Which could become a problem if you require a good steady grasp on the tool at an odd angle.
Additionally it tends to misfire in between fasteners every once in a while (usually when using staples), Though that may be because it was new and i had just oiled it. Which leads to another problem.
IT is a tool that must be oiled with each use, which immediately removes it from the category of fine woodworking and such, due to the risk of oil stains.
hope this helps!

Easy to set up, quick to change from brads to staples. Precise placement of fasteners. I can't believe I waited so long to buy one of these.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 perfect for upholstery repair
I was looking for a stapler that could shoot into hardwood and leather - the T50 hand stapler I had did not have the power. This little gun had plenty of power - to my surprise, I had to reduce the depth it sunk the staples! Made a quick job of four chairs!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Kristi Doesn't last
We first purchased this product about 4 years ago. It lasted 3 years before it quit. When we bought the second one a year ago, we needed it immediately and this was the only one available. That one only lasted about a year. We only use it on average of once a month, so there is no reason for it to stop working.
I will buy a different brand next time.
