Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Shari Pneumatic stapler
This stapler comes with 15,000 staples; a lifetime supply and works like a charm. I used vegetable oil to coat the track prior to use (as other reviews recommended) and reupholstered our leather bar stools. They look better than the original. I love this staple gun and the power it packs. It is lightweight and super easy to use.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PS37 Has some issues but more reasonable price than others
I ordered this product so that I could recover a couch. The job got done and I am pleased with the results. I did experience a couple of slight problems:
The "hammer" (the metal piece that actually pushes out the staples) should be oiled. The instruction manual said to oil the stapler daily but only indicated oiling at the air inlet. Once it got to the point that I was opening it up and pushing the "hammer" back into the retracted position after every single staple, I decided to oil that portion. I waited overnight and then shot the empty stapler into scrap wood about 20 times before using it again. It worked much better after that.
These staples break VERY easily. I got pretty frustrated pulling the 2000 or so existing staples out of my project, but most of them came out in their entirety. I would say that these Surebonder staples broke about 80% of the time. It made me more careful to not make mistakes, but when I did, it was really a pain. It will also definitely affect whether or not I will ever recover this couch again. I cannot imagine trying to pull out 2000 of the Surebonder staples.
On the positive side, this stapler is much cheaper than any alternative I found. This set from Home Depot came with lots of staples. I can probably get through one more project before I need more of the 3/8 inch staples. (I only used of few of the other sizes.) I did not experience any difficult jams. It is lightweight and easy to use.
I do recommend this product if you keep in mind to oil the hammer and you are ok with the fragility of the staples.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by caribap This thing is awesome
Great priced, picked up in store a few days after ordering online. This gun was just what i need to get the job done. I was trying to recover some chairs, the seat is made from HDF board, tried a Arrow T50 manual staple, would not penetrated. Tried the Stanley Electric staple, same issue. Needed a gun that would shoot thinner staples. this is a true upholstery stapler. Its lightweight, easy to load, easy to pull, has a safety, comes with 15000 staples, although i didn't get all 3 sizes, and they are in metric sizes. Finding more staples might be a challenge. But the gun works phenomenally well.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Kirbo Good stapler, worthless 1million included staples
Nice staple gun and standard blow moulded case. The included staples went straight into the dumpster. Who in their right mind used iron (NON-Stainless) staples. Home Depot could save us about ten dollars on this product by not bundling those worthless staples with a nice stapler.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by HMT I think I got what I paid for
I ordered this pneumatic stapler because it seemed economical and looked like it would get my job done. I had trouble right away with the staples that came with it getting stuck in the stapler. I called the helpline but they were unable to help me actually open up the stapler Eventually I managed to force out the broken Staples and have done so several times in the course of my small job.

Needed this to recover some bar stools and other furniture pieces. I loved that it came with three sizes of staples. Big time saver.
Took me a bit to figure out the trigger safety, but the thing works great. Some of the reviews mentioned problems, I had none. Works the way it should. Just take your time , don't try to work fast like a professional, and you'll get good results.
I love that it's small enough to fit comfortably in my hand, I have small hands.
I'm happy with my purchase.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AZGATOR Highly recommend!!!
Worked great and never jammed in over 3K of staples. Used it to replace seat webbing on high end leather chairs. Leather was very thick but never slowed it down!
