Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mark Customer Service exchanged after 3 1/2 years
Agree with others that it's disappointing to have breakable plastic parts in the ratchet mechanism. But it lasted 3 1/2 years of occasional use before breaking. Decided to take the old one with me when I went to get another. Showed it to a staff member Customer Service counter, who said if it's Home Depot brand (HDX), it has a lifetime warranty, so just get another! Hard to beat that.

Broke on the very first trigger pull. Thought the ratchet mechanism was a good feature, should have seen the trigger was held in by an extremely thin piece of plastic.
Don't waste your money.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Craig Thought I'd get a better gun by spending a few extra bucks.
"You get what you pay for" Not the case with this gun! All the critical components are thin plastic, and break easily. There's no clever fixes to get it to work in a pinch if something breaks off. Tried exchanging broken ones for new ones (same model) and I've been almost impressed with how many different points of failure you can find in this thing.

It worked OK for a little while but the main tube holder is screwed into the handle with a plastic screw. Any bit of pressure pops the screw threads out. I had to screw it in 4-5 times, then I tried super gluing it, and it still popped. It's going in the trash. Horrible design not meant for longevity.

Loved it until part of it broke beyond repair. Heavy use lasted about 2-3 weeks.

Most of you guys are using this caulking gun for the wrong reason, probably, why it has low rating. As a painter, I need a dripless, lightweight and smooth releasing caulking gun and this one does it. Have had it for a month now and no complains about it!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Homeowner Doesn't last long..don't waste your money!
I bought one of these at the store without reading any reviews. I figured since it wasn't the cheapest one it should be fine for my infrequent use. This made it through 1 tube of caulk before the plastic threads holding the whole thing together all stripped and the gun flew apart in two pieces. Don't waste your time or money with this caulk gun.
