I bought this stapler after a disappointment with a "refurbished" older model that would drive both staples and brads. Compared to the older one, the SX1838K was easier to use in terms of putting the staples exactly where I wanted them and particularly for providing good countersinking of the fasteners. It also does not require oiling, which avoids the possibility of staining the work. I use the stapler in my home shop for cabinet making and a variety of day to day fastening needs. I found the 7/32" staple and this stapler to be something I count on and use often, usually along with glue, to get a strong, tight joint very quickly, without having the confusion of clamping up the pieces and driving a screw.

We have owned as many as 6 of these staplers with no issues until recently. With the last 2 new ones we regularly have broken drivers. One just back from being repaired has already broken again after a few thousand shots. We are looking into buying a different brand in the future.
Update: all 4 of the staplers in my job trailer have now broken the drivers. Have used Bostitch staplers for years but the new models do not hold up. I have bought my last one. I now give it a 1 because I can't give it a zero.

Pros:

1. oil-free

2. swivel air fitting

3. light

Cons:

1. Odd size 7/32 staple. For me, SS was important for outdoor projects, so limited choices vice 1/4" crown staples.

2. Trigger safety is awkward. Although this is partly due to the 2 function trigger. I always think safeties should be color-coded.

Wish List: I like depth setting wheels, but they ought to be indexed.

Purchased the stapler in nov 2010 to install a beadboard ceiling and trim in a small house. Stapler is now in for service for the 3rd time, after less then 5000 staples. The first time the piston jammed in the cylinder, the last 2 times the piston won't retract far enough to catch a staple.

History:

I've been in the building trade all my life and have extensive experience with most tools.

Review:

This is a great stapler. Quick change trigger, quick turn depth gauge, and hook to hold it on your belt while working. It even has a built in pencil sharpener- funny, but helpful.

This gun is amazing. Starting at the swivel air connection right on to the fact that it knows when it's out of staples. I'm using this guy for a 1x6 knotty pine ceiling firing 1 ½" staples. A finishing nail in the tongue is to thin and pulls right thru.

very well made, love the hook! I don't know how long 'oil less' designs live but otherwise
you can't go wrong here, esp if u buy the Eagle staples on amazon as well, no one else comes
close.

I've been through two of these. Bought the first from Canadian Tire and the plunger broke halfway through its first soffit job. I exchanged it for a new one which leaked air past the piston right out of the box. I put it in my trailer and finished up with another stapler I had. A year later I pulled it out and realized if I held the trigger long enough, air would leak by but it would eventually shoot, then it would work for a while. Then I leant it to a buddy and the piston broke. The piston, it turns out, is made of plastic. I like bostich in general but this seems to be a lemon
