Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by BillR625 Smooth Action, Comfortable, High quality
This is a lightweight caulk gun that seems perfect for even the smallest hands. This holds the typical size caulk or adhesive and requires little pressure to squeeze the trigger, so its great for even the weakest of hands or those with arthritis. I like there is no mechanical release on the plunger, that all you have to do is pull back on the rod to release pressure, since there is no ratcheting action, its all smooth. I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 because I believe this is lacking 2 features I would like to see. One is a piercing rod to break the tube seal. Without one requires another tool or nail on hand to break the seal. I would also like to see a belt hoop on it as well. Thus 4 stars over 5.
After using it on a different materials the tube does allow extra material to seep out once the trigger is released. I find myself pulling back on the rod taking pressure off the tube to stop this. This is easier to do then the ratcheting type, just pull and it keeps it position. Overall this is an excellent choice for a caulk gun.
