I've never given a 1-star review before, but I'm so completely disappointed in this product that I just had to this time.

This stapler made a lot of sense to me -- the downward force when stapling is smack dab on top of where the staple (or brad) fires. This virtually eliminates kick-back and lands the staple solidly on target. It's pretty straightforward and only mildly awkward once you get used to the idea (which happens pretty quickly) - you just have to keep in mind that you're using a stapler that fires from "the other end." (Side note: Personally I don't try to operate any tool without understanding its basic operation, including what's sharp, what moves, and how the tool might react when used. This is especially true for those tools that fire _projectiles_, so follow this advice and you probably won't wind up with a staple in your hand... or worse.)

I say "mildly awkward," by the way, because I think when we (people in general) put force into a push, we're accustomed to using the heels of our palms - right in line with the forearm. That's more in line with how the traditional staple guns work. With this one, though, you kind of have to rock your wrist forward when you squeeze. It's as if you're pushing from the area between your thumb and first finger, which feels a bit unnatural.

Anyway, I bought this stapler, a package of brad nails (same brand) and a package of staples (again, same brand). The staples fired about 80% of the time; the brads about 70%. I shot about 50 of each before the first jam (on a staple). I managed to get it cleared and shot about 15 more staples before it jammed again... then again, and again. Between misfires and jams, this product was really slowing me down. Finally "something gave" inside and the handle went limp.

While I liked the forward action of this stapler, I have not been able to get one that lasts. Had old style stapler which lasted for over a decade in light home owner use. But have gone through two of these staplers in last couple of years. Both refused to recock after driving a staple. Now I'm back looking for something better.

This has got to be the worst stapler ever invented. They have great packaging, couple that with the design and it seems like it would be easier to use...but that is as far as the functionality extends. I have attempted to use this for a few simple tasks: reattaching the thin cover on the bottom of a sofa, putting up holiday decorations and reupholstering a few chairs. Each one of these led to the most aggrevating time ever, wasting at least 75% of the staples due to the design of the "launch" mechanism. It either fails to retract completely, or it fails to punch the staple with any force.

I just went through 2 strips of staples, and only ~10 staples actually worked.

Do not waste your money. I just wish I would have actually used this right after purchasing it, instead I bought it (from b&m home improvement store) for a project that was in the future and am now stuck with it.

It was a nice idea to put the driver right over the staple. Puts the force where you need it, right? Unfortunately, this seems to have turned out to be more of an engineering problem than Arrow realized. I just dropped mine in the trash because I was fed up of spending more time clearing jams and shooting blanks than actually stapling. This is a well-made, clever gadget. Unfortunately, it doesn't work.

I bought one of these a few years ago and have never gotten it to properly lay even a single stick of staples. It will false-fire (act like it's shooting a staple then not lay one), mis-fire (shooting the staple when you release pressure on the trigger), not fire at all, and then jam consistently. Finally in frustration, I opened it up to see what the problem was. One of the anvil pins is too short. As this is a hardened & polished pin, you're not gonna find one at your local hardware store. and because my problems have been reflected by many others with similar experiences, I can only conclude this was not a one-off assembly line error. Clearly someone got cheap and decided to save a few pennies by intentionally using a shorter pin (and probably got a promotion for saving the company money). This thing went into the scrap pile & I went back to my father's old Arrow that has worked for 40 years now. This, combined with similar problems I have had with other new Black & Decker products, I can only assume the proud name of Black & Decker is now being used to market cheap & shoddy products with no concern for use or life after the sale. No more Black & Decker products for me.

It seemed to work okay in the first 4-5 full loads of staples, but after a that it started to have four main problems:

1. It would fire blanks due to the driver not fully cocking, when you squeeze the handle. It would feel like a half a shot.

2. It would fire blanks with a full cock, and dent the wood.

3. It would not fire at all. I could squeeze the handle fully, but it just compresses like a grip exerciser, and the staple just pops out weakly when the handle is released.

4. The staple driver would get stuck in the up position. It got freed after I banged the tool on a hard surface.

I went out an bought a regular Arrow staple gun and it has worked fine.
