The Arrow T50 staple gun used to be a simple, dependable tool. I had one for 20 years and never had a problem with it. My staple gun disappeared from the job site, now I know why -- the old ones worked, the new ones are junk! After 2 hours of frustration trying to tack insulation, jams every few minutes with Arrow brand staples -- I took a hammer to it! Save your money and buy something else!

I understand this product is cheap, but for me, it's just too shoddy to justify purchasing at any price. It's frustrating to use and it's just plain stupid that Arrow would tell anyone this thing is "Heavy Duty". Compared to WHAT? A Swingline desk stapler? At least the Swingline does what you expect it to do. The Arrow does NOT. It bothers me to see "Made in America" on a shoddy product.

What's OK: This stapler is OK for extremely light use. How light? Think of the easiest thing you could ask a staple gun to do. That's what this thing can do, no more. For example, I had a very cheap wooden folding screen (made in China of soft pine) that had gotten scratched up by the cat, and I was able to attach nice looking upholstery to it with the Arrow stapler. In that application, with the soft pine wooden frame flat on a table in front of me and the stapler pointing straight down through one or two layers of thin material, I got only occasional jams. The 1/4" staples generally did penetrate the wood enough. I was also able to re-affix some torn couch upholstery in a very similar manner - more or less pointing straight down, into soft pine, through one or two layers of cloth. That was the one application that this thing worked for. It still jammed sometimes, but not too bad. That earns it one star.
The other star is because this stapler soldiers on. You can pry staples out of it (and you will be prying, believe me) and though time consuming and annoying, it won't break the gun. I've pried probably hundreds of staples out of this thing and it doesn't seem to be getting any worse than it was when it was new. So at least its reliably sucky.

BAD SIDE: The above example is honestly the only thing I've figured out that this stapler can do.

This testament to the quality of this tool may be how many times I've either had it stolen. For under 20 bucks you get a stapler that will work perfectly -- not a single jam -- until you 'lose it'. Great for stapling screen, fabric or any material into wood as well as other light surfaces. I've used it for a variety for household repair project and I suspect it is great for craft things as well.
One note: if you are going to use this to tack telephone cable or electrical wire I would highly recommend buying the T-25 instead (it wasn't on Amazon at the time of this review, but I suspect it will be here soon.) That model has curved staples and a guide to feed the wire, resulting in a much lower chance of puncturing through the insulation. It is very good for hiding all the assorted self-installed 'networks' and 'audio systems' in your house.
Though I see other ergodynamic versions are available, I truly don't believe that there's much to improve on -- this tool is pretty much perfect.

O.k, all I was trying to do was build a "cat condo"! I simply needed a staple gun to staple the carpet to some wood. I remember my dad had a staple gun that worked great, and would shoot staples across the garage. So I went to Home Depot to get a staple gun. I found the Arrow T50 that looked pretty familiar, so I bought it along with two boxes of different size staples. I took it home, loaded some staples in, and could not get it to work. I tried to hold it at different angles, and tried everything I could think of. It finally started shooting staples, but only about 1 out of five would work...So back to Home Depot I went. I returned the thing along with the remaining staples, and hoped to find a "better" one. There were not really many other options, so I thought I would try another one! So I bought another T50 along with more staples. I took it home and again immediately had problems. I loaded the staples and it didn't work! I tried to remove the staples, but they seemed stuck. I tried to use it again, and eventually got some stapling done. I tried to load the second round of staples, and it jammed completely, and would not work at all. I just don't know why this thing won't work. I have the correct T50 staples of different lengths, and none seem to work correctly. I believe this is similar to the one I remember from long ago, except I remember the staples being wider. I don't know how Arrow could have made these things this long, and yet they work so badly. Did they change the design? Did they cheapen the parts? So I have to go back to the Depot again for the return. Maybe I'll see what Lowe's has. Stanley also makes a stapler, so maybe I'll give Sears a try too.

This stapler is not worth a penny. It constantly jams. Every time I reload, it takes about 10 jams and half of the new clip of staples until it starts working. And yes, I am using genuine Arrow T50 staples for reloads. I know this is the only stapler like it on the market, but you would be better off with a hammer and a box of staples. Save your $20
