I'm a fan of Bostich guns at CPO
I bought this gun (refurbished) from CPO to install some board and batten on a treehouse my friend is building. We shot over 3000 staples and we did not have even ONE MISFIRE OR JAM!
This little staple gun is amazing! Plenty of kick, lightweight, i know it sounds funny to be so excited about the little belt hook, but working on a ladder 20-30 feet off the ground that little hook saved me!
The design is great, easy to load, plenty of power. It s nice to have a case to protect it too.
This is the second refurbished Bostitch staple gun i have purchased and i am now a fan! (I also bought a Staple gun, model EHF1838K, to install my hardwood floor. That gun has fired over 6000 staples now and has only misfired twice!)
I have recommended Bostitch guns and CPO to my friends, and I will recommend again!

New Vs. Reconditioned

What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
  • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
  • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
  • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
