ET501 2 in 1 Staple Nail Gun
My gun is brand new and it jams all the time.
I want to return this staple gun! I'm stapling fabric to wood based chair seats using the 1/4" staples. It jams constantly. This last jam was very frustrating because it won't work at all now.

Plastic rail feeder is junk, jams and becomes useless
There are two major (price point) design flaws.
1. Lack of power to push 1/4" and 3/8" staples flush in to Pine furring strips.
2. staple feeder rail is mostly soft, plastic with a metal staple pusher\feeder. The plastic wears quickly from the metal feeder and gets out of alignment and the gun becomes useless.
I have used under 3,000 staple #just opened my 3rd box# and this gun's feeder came apart and the spring became bent. This gun is ready for the trash.
My last Arrow #manual# gun lasted 20+ years. The model ET501 didn't make it through one project and its ready for the trash. I'd pay more for a metal gun. The point of buying tools it to have it for a project and Future uses also....Might as well rent because this won't last more than a project. Too bad....
