The textured metal body has a nice heft and finish. The staple magazine has a great quality sound that provides positive feedback to know you're locked and loaded! And the included wire guide is key for around the house chores - it allows you to wire manage your phone/coaxial/etc cords without putting a staple through it. Just watch out for the sizes of staples you buy and the dropping it on hard surfaces in cold weather. Some internal parts are plastic - and they don't react too well in those conditions.
This stapler make 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 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 ›
This staple gun jams excessively, releases under power without provocation, and provides a level of danger that is not on a level with a consumer product's expectations. I am a degreed mechanical engineer with a great deal of experience in using tools for automotive restoration. I consider myself knowledgeable and careful in the use of tools. I have never had an injury similar to this in over 35 years of working with tools.
I would be interested in having anyone with a similar experience contact me directly.
Great for laying wire and installing fiberglass insulation, the forward action will firmly seat the staple into the wood. The 9/16" brads are NOT seated entirely into the wood, but in my case, that is what I want. I use the brad stapler for preperation of thin wood for "stack cutting" scroll saw projects. The hand held PowerShot makes the prep time for the thin wood a breeze, and easy, AND it doesn't tire the hand.
Easily fires staples flush, easy on the hand, HIGHLY recommend the PowerShot 5700KB Forward Action

It is a great little tool for a little use. I don't think I have used it even a dozen times.
It is now broken as the "forward action" does not catch and nothing happen. Read more
