From the manufacturer
Small Size, Large Capacity
While being 40% shorter than most standard 1/4" pop riveters, the 1423 maintains the same 1/4" capacity by multiplying leverage with its unique compound hinge design.
Use Larger Rivets Even In Confined Spaces
By being the shortest full capacity 1/4" riveter in the market, the 1423 requires less space to performs jobs like window regulators and hood struts.
5 Different Sizes, Any Material
Set steel, aluminum, stainless or copper pop rivets in 1/8", 5/32", 3/16", 6.0mm and 1/4".

i finally get all of my internal door parts in for my restoration project and i am super excited to get this finished so i can go for a drive. all of the parts go in super easy which never happens and i'm finally ready to rivet on my new freshly powder coated door panels. I clamp the panels in place drill two dozen 1/8" holes and get out my shiney new Astro 1423! i open the jaws, put the stainless rivet into the jaw and pull the handles about half way down until i feel it grab the rivet. I stick the rivet firmly in the hole and press the handles together, again and again and again. It takes about ten pulls to get one 1/8" diameter 1/2" long stainless rivet to set. i point the rivet gun up to the sky and open the jaw and clink the post goes into the container.
3 hours later i have 16 rivets done; some taking over 100 pumps to set. Keep in mind that the heat index is 116. At this point i am looking at the neighbors goat wondering if a blood sacrifice will help. I'm sweating, tired and getting sore from pumping these damn handles. I give up and go inside to soak up some AC, I decide that the tool is a lost cause so i might as well take it apart and see what is going on. I quickly figure out that the tips are all different lengths and this sets how wide the jaw opens. So i grab a few washers and put them in between the tip and the giant nut it threads into which should keep the jaws from opening as wide. Not only does it grip the 1/8" shank it grabs immediately instead of half way through the pump. No more pointing it at the sky and closing the handles to "set" the jaws. they set immediately like every other rivet gun i have ever used. I go outside and finish the last 6 rivets in a matter of minutes with each rivet setting in 3 full even pulls.
Word to the wise if you buy this expect to have to tinker with the tip spacing to get it to work properly. Wish i would have known this three hours ago.....................................................
-Hedge clipper action, rather than plier action much easier!
-Less hand fatigue, and can apply forward pressure while riveting
-Easily handles steel rivets
-Shanks are caught in removable chamber, making less mess
-After 1000s of rivets, still grips well! (not true of my previous $12 standard riveter which only lasted a few hundred)
-Point tool toward the sky to load, open and close to seat rivet. After riveting, again point to sky and open to unload shank.
-When riveting tight spots that don't have room for the head, stack washer or nuts on shank and apply tool to full stack. That will give you the clearance you need to use the tool (I had to do this when trying to rivet a handle on a case.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that using it with the catch bin in place is awkward, but easy to fix. You just unscrew the useless thing and it's out of your way. You have to point the riveter up, open the handles all the way, and give the tool a good shake to get the used mandrel to fall out anyway...might as well do so over a trash can or into a pile for later.
The two big flaws I see are:
1) Inconsistent labeling of nosepieces: some have both imperial and metric clearly etched on the top, others have just the metric size lightly etched into the side. The ones with the top etching are easy to see when quickly looking around the tool, but the ones etched on the side are difficult to read quickly since they may be facing any direction, and the "3.2" specifically is so lightly etched that the top third of the numbers isn't etched at all.
2) The wrench attachment meant to change the nosepiece doesn't slot in properly. It has to push the collection cup out of the way a bit to sit in its slot. It doesn't take an extreme amount of force, you can easily do it with 1 hand, but it puts unnecessary stress on the threading of the cup itself and is just a weird, bad design choice, since they could have moved it over a few millimeters to make it a smooth fit.
All in all, I'm not impressed with the tool's ergonomics, but the mechanical aspects haven't failed me yet and I've used it quite a bit.

That is way I bought this one. PS there is a bottle that catches the nail when it breaks off so don:t have to pick any nails up off the ground. In my case that is a plus , I have big fingers so it is annoying trying to pickup small things.
