TR550 Lever Feed Glue Gun
TR 550 Review
Works great, but I need a metal sear for it because when I pull the trigger the sear just slides under the glue stick instead of biting into the glue stick. This is what is causing it to malfunction. If a new metal sear could be made for it it would fix the malfunctioning problem I am having.

Where are the cleaning instructions?
This gun seems nice. Sturdier than others, etc., but ours is plugged up and there are no instructions for how to clean it. I removed the threaded nozzle, put it in boiling water and picked out the glue, and now it is soaking in acetone, but these are just guesses at what might solve the problem. I doubt this will work as I see there appears to be a ball valve in the nozzle, and I can't get it to open. It sure would be better if Arrow provided instructions for storage and cleaning.

This glue gun puts others to shame!
I have had my TR-550 for many years now. My impression today is the same as when I bought it; this thing is amazing. First, people, please, use the right glue stick. The TR-550 heats to 375 deg. F with a 40 Watt element. Cheap or "generic" glue sticks will not yield top-notch performance. The glue heats rapidly, holds its heat for assembling long or complex bonds, and flows smoothly. The trigger feed system is a thing of beauty. Flows fast or slow, you control it all.
One tiny minor complaint is the glue drip tray/stand. After many years of use, mine has snapped off. Sad to see it go, as now I have a bent wire hanger filling in. The rest of the gun keeps right on rolling along.
Would I recommend this? Yes, and I have never seen any glue gun that compares. Price for the performance is the best there is.
