I'm about halfway done putting down a 225 sq.ft. Bruce 5/16" thick oak floor. The only problem I had was when I first started the job, it wouldn't fire sometimes. I loosened the yellow thumb screws and re-adjusted the base, the gun worked perfect from that point on. The key to this stapler is to make sure the metal safety with the 2 curved hooks on the end is pushed all the way up when in position or else the gun won't fire. I'm not sure what the purpose of the safety button on the side is for, the gun still fires in either position. Also my gun still fires even when out of staples, not sure why. Otherwise I like the tool, very light and comfortable to use. It uses either 7/32" or 1/4" 18 ga. crown staples. I'm using a 1" long staple with 80-85 PSI.

THIS IS ALSO FOR SOLID HARDWOOD SUCH AS Bruce Natural Selections. It is also for other engineered floor boards. IT IS NOT FOR STANDARD THICK FLOOR BOARDS. It is really hard to figure out what is the right tool with Bostitch. The Bostitch Stapler recommended by Bruce for National Selections 5/16 thick solid hardwood is nearly impossible to get and is more expensive. This stapler take the place of that other one and additionally works for engineered too. I can't find any negatives with this one compared to the one specific one purpose one they mentioned - this one does more. It even comes with 1000 of the 1" staples most use for Natural Selections. This is a precisely made tool, easy to use and setup and used hardly any air to work to boot. It is as right for Bruce Natural Selection as any Bruce recommends in the manual and seem to be the most affordable one. Now there are other brands you can find for $79-108 dollars that people have found suitable for their projects. To me I rather spend a little more to get a better tool that I at least think will give me less trouble. You do get what you pay for. Now it could be the others are just fine, I don't know, and for maybe one project they will be fine. But I like the way this one loads, will stop when staples are getting low so you don't think you shot a staple and you didn't and go on to the next board. It has a trigger lockout, and the air connection swivels. It is also kinda quite which is nice. No super loud staple sound.

If you wonder why these staplers are not the kind you bang with a mallet is that flooring such as Natural selections are not banged tight together as they are stapled as they fit together perfectly by design.

After I do two rooms I will likely sell it. Still comes out cheaper than renting of having to get and return it, risking getting a beat-up one to use and rushing, even with out selling it.

If you're installing 3/8 - 5/8" hardwood floors, this is a fine stapler! Especially like adjustable feet and swivel hose hookup

Great stapler!Using it to install 3/8" engineered hardwood in the entire upstairs. Very easy to use. After very few adjustments, it sets the staple at the perfect depth.

I used this stapler to put down ~400ft^2 of engineered hickory flooring. It was easy enough to setup. The adjustable cleat has lots of degrees of freedom, but once I set it up, it never moved or required any adjustment throughout the job. I like that the safety won't engage when the clip is empty preventing dry-fires. The drive depth was consistent from start to finish. I have an adjustable regulator on the hose end and once I dialed it in, I never had to touch it even after starting/stopping over multiple evenings. Though the magnesium makes it light, it still feels solid and well built. I'm happy with my purchase.

I bought this because I couldn't find anyone in my area that rented it. I live in the Boonies. I installed approximately 800 square feet of 1/2" engineered flooring. It worked perfectly, it was easy to adjust and stayed set for the entire floor. Amazon shipped it quickly and it arrived in a few days.

Used this to accomplish putting in a little over 500 square feet of hardwood flooring. This was the perfect tool for the job, it made tacking down the boards quick and did not slow me down at all, instead it sped up the project. I did not have the same issue as I read others had... the safety only came on for me once or twice, and it was not a problem. Keep in mind if you do a large project like this though, that this will not be sufficient for tight spots and putting the last two rows of boards as the wall will be too close to use it. You will need a normal nail gun without an angle built in.

This thing is wonderful!! I've done about 550 square feet of 3/8" engineered with it and it hasn't jammed ONCE. The guide is incredibly easy to set and then staple after staple exactly where you want it. Also, while still having some noise due to being a pneumatic nailer/stapler, it is relatively quieter than others I have. If you are even thinking about getting this one, just save yourself the research and headaches and add it to your cart. Ease of adjustment, jam free operation, what more could you want?
