I used this gun to install about 450 sq ft of engineered hardwood, i fired 1500 staples, the gun jammed twice, the staple didnt cause the jam but something inside the firing mechanism. I think both times it was because of user error. I had my six year old son helping me pull the trigger, he thought it was a blast and was trying to fire as fast as possible, i think something happened when the trigger was partially pulled and then released too quickly, which caused the firing pin thingy to jam. (can you tell I am a DIYer, i dont know the part names!) 2 jams in 1500 is good enough for me considering the price I paid for the tool. The head is very easy to adjust to your specific wood size. rubberized handle and rubber pads stratigically placed on the gun did a good job protecting the floor, even with little hands helping... and dropping things!
Some reviews said the tips kept falling off, mine never did.
The safety button is a bit too touchy for me, being lesft handed, my natural grip on the gun was right on the safety button so i kept pressing it by accident. i guess that is my punishment for being left handed.
It would be nice if the head could be removed and have the gun usable as a regular stapler, which would allow me to keep and use it forever, as it is, it is not of much worth to me now, I knew this ahead of time, and i planned to resale it after my floor was completed.
Over all very satisfied.
Very easy to use & light weight. No problems, would purchase other items from CPO. Fast shipping at a good price
