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.Read more ›
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.
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.

Jibbers Crabst I wish I had read the reviews before buying this and tossing it away. What a piece of junk. I've spent more time clearing jams than doing anything else.Published 28 days ago by Hodor
I agree with all the negative comments on this stapler. Staples get jammed and won't come out at all, or it will shoot 3 staples at a time, and then jamb up. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Joyrider
