From the Manufacturer

N3804AB3 ¼-inches Narrow Crown Stapler

Uses & Applications

Hitachi’s N3804AB3 narrow crown stapler is ideal for internal and external trim work, furniture assembly, cabinet and countertop work and other fine finish applications. It can be used in any application requiring superior holding strength in thin materials like soffit plywood, floor underlayment, cabinet backs, and countertop blanks. It’s 'one sweet stapler' as one of our end users put it.

Key Features and Benefits

Tool-free Depth Adjustment

The N3804AB3 offers tool-free depth adjustment that identically sets each staple to the desired depth into the material, for improved control and customization. Operating pressure ranges between 70-120 PSI and air consumption is .025ft3/cycle at 100 PSI.

Ergonomically Designed Flip Actuation Switch

Just move the switch from bump fire mode (hold the trigger and the stapler will drive a staple each time the nose touches a surface) to sequential fire mode (trigger must be depressed each time for more deliberate placement and a slower pace of work). Either way, its quick to make the switch as your application requires without any tooling to make the adjustment.

Lightweight and Well-balanced

Weighing in at only 2.3 lbs the N3804AB3 is extremely well-balanced. It fits comfortably and securely in hand thanks to the non-slip elastomer grip and trigger. The weight, balance and handling are just right for precision performance.

360 Degree Adjustable Exhaust Port

At the top of the stapler is the convenient 360° adjustable exhaust port. This can be spun around in any direction to ensure the air exhaust doesn’t blow in your face or near your work piece.

Warranty Info, What's in the Box, and Other Information

Warranty Information

Covered by Hitachi’s 5-year warranty.

What's in the Box?

The N3804AB3 stapler, a convenient case for easy transport and storage (885902), a no-mar tip (885969), hose fitting and safety glasses (875769).

More Information

Because it uses an 18 gauge narrow crown staple (only a ¼ of an inch across the top) and accepts staples lengths from ½-inches up to 1-1/2-inches – the staple doesn’t leave a huge mark – not much more than the top of a nail head if you were to use a nail in its place. It can also be used for tacking. Staples have excellent hold and are often times more cost effective for the application.

This stapler comes complete with a no-mar tip installed that can protect the work surface from marring. It also comes with the hose fitting already factory installed at the rear so it’s ready to go right out of the box. The fitting is angled upwards slightly to help keep the hose away from the user and off the work piece.

To load the high capacity solid steel magazine, simply draw the feeder back to lock, set staples over the exposed rail, then release the slider to securely hold the staples in place. The N3804AB3 can hold up to 100 staples for less frequent replenishment.

Optional Accessories

Every Hitachi accessory is designed to the highest standards and is rigorously tested for both performance and durability. Since its inception, Hitachi has pioneered innovative technologies that have improved the quality of craftsmanship worldwide. Hitachi is a leader in power tool research and development and has achieved many firsts in the power tool industry.

One thing I will add that the other reviewers did not mention is that this stapler packs a heck of a wallop. The power of this lightweight unit really amazed me.

The truth is, I did not know what to expect. I have never owned an air-powered stapler or nail gun. I planned to use this Hitachi stapler to put up kraft-faced insulation, and then later use it for trim work. Yeah, right. I loaded it with 0.50" staples. They went right through the paper tabs on the insulation and kept on going into the studs. I had to look hard to find them because they had been sunk so deeply.

I turned the air pressure down to 70 PSI, which is the minimum operating pressure and set the stapler's depth adjustment to minimum. No dice. Too powerful! I went back to using my Arrow T-50 Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Special.

I decided to get to know this little monster better. So I ran a test to see what it could do. I loaded it with 1.50" Senco staples and fastened a piece of 7/16" Oriented Strand Board (OSB) to some wall studs in about five seconds. Extremely impressive! I showed my science project to my wife.

She said, "Very nice. Now take it down. It looks terrible stuck up there."

I tried to pull the test piece off the wall with my bare hands, but it would not budge. Then I tried to pull it off with a 22 oz. framing hammer. That didn't work either. Finally, I had to use a 3-foot long pry bar. Geez, talk about embarrassing.

My last futile effort involved trying to recycle the test piece of OSB by attempting to extract the 1.5" staples I had shot into it. I won't tell you what happened except to say the OSB went into my woodstove, staples and all.

Here is a tip: Whatever you staple with this Hitachi stapler is forever.

I've used many brands of nail guns with various prices and qualities. The Hitachi Narrow Crown Finish Stapler definitely one of the best considering the low price. Light, and easy to use, it also has a switch for single shot or bump action which is wonderful. Most homeowner will feel much comfortable with single shot and able to check how many staple left with exposed rail. With a short practice, most people can gain most of the control of this staple and use it with ease. It has no problem driving 1 1/2 into wood and I felt it doesn't use much of air pressure as my compressor stay quiet longer than some other nail guns with similar capability.

The only thing I don't like is the kit does not come with sample staples and lubricant. It is not that I don't have them at home but it means the case does not design with designated places for those. minus one star for that.

The Hitach is a nice looking tool, light weight, and it is cool. When loading the bolt draws back and locks. Staples fit over the rail tightly, but slide smoothly, release button is easy to operate and positive (not sloppy).

The stapler needs at least fifty pounds of pressure, but will sink the 1.25 inch staples perfectly into pine at that setting. It uses little air, so the compressor isn't called on much.

In "automatic" bump mode this gun will shoot all day. I was stapling 3' lengths of chicken wire to a wooden frame. The gun has never jammed.

As much as I hate manual staplers, I love this tool!

It is a joy to use, and accurate. I highly recommend this tool.

We needed to purchase another stapler for our custom cabinet shop. Wanted something durable, but light weight. We have had Hitachi brad guns for years and never had any issues, so for less then a C-note we got this unit.

Fits your hand well, easy to load and easy to use.

It has plenty of power pushing 1 1/4 staples into hardwood without any problems. It will be interesting to see how this unit holds up in the long run, all indications indicate no reason to be concerned.

Only negative that I have found is that you can't load two full clips of staples - the magazine isn't long enough.

I bought this stapler reburbished. It came from Bigsky tools through Amazon. The stapler looked bran new, the storage case too. It works flawlessly. Very powerful. Best of all, no plastic parts on this baby. the magazine, holding the staples is all steel construction.

After buying and wearing out 3 chinese staplers I bought one of these, and after 10,000 staples it still works like new!

The hook that is supposed to hold the ribbon spring to the magazine would not stay attached. This prevents the staple feeder from advancing. It may work ok while the spring is under tension, but if there are no staples in the magazine the hook is free to fall out. Putting it back in requires disassembling the magazine. By the time you get it reassembled the hook has likely fallen out again.

As owner of a cabinet and Millwork business, I can tell that my nail guns and staple guns never get a rest and we don't baby them either. I've used just about every brand of gun there is, and after discovering Hitachi guns several years ago I keep going back to them again and again. They are tough and Hitachi doesn't put all the stupid safety crap on them that some consumer oriented nail guns have. The drivers in the Hitachi guns are the best there are. I've never broken one. My Hitachis go all day every day and some of them have been doing so for 10 + years.
With a drawer full of broken Senco and Bostich guns, I think Hitachi has proven themselves.
