T50 Heavy Duty Tacker Gun
Chose this t50 over cheaper competition models.Right from the start it keeps jamming. Spent most of my time removing jammed staples. I was using it for light duty work. The staplees that did come out failed to penetrate the work surface.

The t50 works great for a few months and then starts jamming up. as do all other brands and models of staple guns they are unreliable. That being said just buy the t50 RED because it comes with a three year return policy. So when it fails, because they always do just return it and get a new one or have it fixed. It’s a pain to do this a few times a year but it is the way it is when it comes to staple guns. But overall the T50 is the best staple gun on the market. I just think the T50 RED is better off because of the three year policy.

Overall an Okay Product
I purchase about two dozen of these staplers a year for our Shooting Range to post targets onto cardboard. They usually work okay for about a month or two and then the pins, which have a circlip on the end, fall off and it renders the stapler useless.
Why doesn't Arrow have a cotter keyed or nut holding the pins on? That would be the real fix for this very common problem.
Also, some guys at the range spray oil on the stapler track. Of course, in the dirt and heat of Arizona this gets the stapler all gummed up and the stapler again does not work! Yikes!
Overall, the stapler has a good design but it could be made better with just a couple of modifications.

I am the daughter of a man who was a self employed do-it-all construction worker his entire adult life & learned a lot from him. He has always used only the Aarow T-50 staple guns of which I inherite one that is very old & one that is around 10 years old & they both work with the same great power, stability, ease & both still look new even though they have been through a lot! You can't beat this staple gun as it's great for smaill stuff (like decorating inside/outside for Christmas) or for more heavy duty jobs, it works great for any job. You can't go wrong with this staple gun!
