By A. Franke on November 27, 2005
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 owned the original model of this for 15 years without fail. When that unit disappeared in a move, I quickly purchased a new one (model 5700M). What an incredibly disppointing experience. This new version is garbage. I can't load it more than half way or the feed bar wont go back in the stapler. I misfire or jam more staples than I actually put into a project. Do not waste your money on this thing. Shame on Arrow for cutting corners.

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. Several times something happened internally, and the handle just flopped up and down loosely with no spring tension at all. I removed the chrome plated bolt at the base end where the staples go in, attempting to disassemble the unit to see if I could fix it, and upon removing the bolt, something snapped inside, and then it worked again. After doing this about 6 times, I just left that bolt out altogether, and the stapler seemed to work better without the bolt in there. --- It also takes some getting used to in using this "backwards". I'm so used to using staplers with the end of the handle back under the palm, instead of forward. Many times I unintentionally used this stapler backwards and shot staples at my feet. I would not buy another one !!

This is my 2nd purchase of this design because it is the easiest to use that I have found. They put the staple coming out where you are PRESSING so there isn't a problem with it jumping around. I have used this to reupholster, replace screen, and do jobs with staples long and short. Great, ergonomic design.
The only problem I have had is the "pump" on my old one (the black portion in the picture) got hung up when it returned to the "ready position" (fully extended) when I dropped it. When I realized the problem and realigned it there were no more hangups.
