Rated 5 out of 5 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 5 out of 5 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 out of 5 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 4 out of 5 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!
