Great gun for the money No-picture-s No-picture-s Click the pictures to enlarge them

I purchased this stapler after being disappointed with the 1” gun that came in my PC combo kit. It is a full range narrow crown stapler: 18ga. 1 1/2”. It has a selector on the trigger for bump-action or sequential firing which is a nice feature, as opposed to swapping out triggers. The carry handle is flimsy, but aren’t they all. The gun has never jammed and is oil-free. Compared to a gun like the Senco SKSXP that I use at work, it’s a toy; but, for less than $100.00 (Ebay) it is a great gun for the money.

I have the older version of this gun and I can’t say enough good things about it.

Don’t lose your receipt. The last one I bought quickly developed a leak and now just sits in the junk drawer.

Dennis, you CAN rebuild them.

Mateo, I would not recommend this for upholstery. This is a construction stapler and has too much beef for fabrics; however, look for porter cable’s 22ga. stapler. http://www.deltaportercable.com/Products/ProductDetail.aspx?ProductID=11640 That’s their site.

A rebuild kit should only cost you about $20-30.

I can’t say anything about the new version but my BN is an absolute work horse.
I’m sure I have shot 100,000 brads through it. Only oiled once and have never replaced a single part.

Fortunately I am with Johnny. Re Built one after a few years service for $25. Works better than it ever did. Great piece of equipment!!
