I work for a HVAC company with over 200 employees in it and the stapler of we use and is given to us free by my company is the T50. I as well as everyone in the company have had many issues with this stapler. The T50 will work ok for a month or so and then starts jamming up and looses power. i went through five or six t50 this tear alone. So I went out and got a T50 RED and I am very happy with this product right out of the box tried all size staples and brad nails and the t50 RED has more power, jams less and saves lots of time loading staples. I have only had this stapler for a little while but so far very happy with it. the only thing a noticed is u have to be very careful when loading staples and make sure the outer sleeve of the ram slides over the staples and not into them or it will jam and not fire. So take a second to watch the other sleeve and u will not have any problems with it. I will recommend this product to everyone in my company and maybe even try to get my company to switch to this product. And if so that will be a few hundred purchases every few months for the t50 RED. And with the ten year limited warranty and three year replacement I believe they will defiantly switch to this stapler. that being said all stapler guns are not dependable and jam up and fail so finding a good one that works every time u use it is impossible I have tried many different brands and they al work for a few months and fail. so this is a coomon problem with all brands not just arrow. the t50 is the choice of professionals. but the t50 RED with a few mods can easly take its place.

I am going to try to keep this short. I use staple guns a lot for work-- for stretching canvas over wood frames. Normally I use a pneumatic or electric, but sometimes I am away from power and need a standard gun. I used a Power shot for a long time and it worked great, thousands of staples were fired and it barely ever jammed. When it finally did break I purchased another because I was so happy with it. That one didn't work. I purchased another. It didn't work. Three or four Power shots purchased in late 2012- early 2013, none worked. The internal parts were bad on all of them-- they didn't even have a chance to jam. They would fire a few staples and the handle would just go limp. Haven't checked out the reviews on those but I am guessing they are just as bad as these. My expectations were so low when I bought the RED this past summer that I didn't even care how awful it worked. At least every time you pushed the handle it clicked and attempted to fire a staple-- I am assuming there is something inside deeming it "dependable" that the Power shot is lacking. But it really is a pretty bad staple gun. Around half of every pack of staples is wasted trying to unjam it. Staples get stuck in the front metal strip and come out in tiny shards after I rip them out with jeweler's pliers-- which doesn't seem very safe. I haven't had to crack it open yet because the internal parts have stopped working, that is literally the only nice thing I have to say about the RED. When I forgot my "trusty" RED one weekend, I went to the hardware store and purchased a replacement. This one also jams every three or four staples, cuts the staples that get stuck into little shards, and as a fun bonus, you can't touch whatever you're stapling or it won't work, you have to hover the gun around 1/8" over the top. Neither provide enough force to drive 1/4" staples all the way through one layer of canvas and a soft pine frame. I have to double back and hammer each one in. So now I own two RED guns that are both really poor performers. I don't know what happened, Arrow. You must be taking short cuts on parts in the last couple years. I can't speak for the regular T50 because I fire so many staples that it hurts my hands, I try not to use it unless I everything is broken. You have a monopoly on the market, particularly in stores. I have literally shed tears over your staple guns. I just want to buy just one that works as good a Power shot I purchased in 2010. Where do you sell one of those?!

      Comfortable to use. Easy to load except when inserting several short runs of staples together. Then a bit of jiggling solves the problem.

      Better instruction on Placement

      By JimRT

      Comments about ARROW FASTENER Arrow T50 R.E.D. Series Manual Staple And Brad Nail Gun (T50RED):

      I attempted to load the RED with brads over the weekend. I had not kept the loading instructions, and did not remeber the proper placement of the brads. Finally after an hour of frustration, I went an purchased a different brand of stapler. At that point when reviewing the instrructions, it was obvious that I ws loading in the wrong fashion. I then loaded the RED correctly, and it functioned as designed. While this was MY mistake, it could have been prevented if there was any instructions on either the unit or Arrows web site to give improved instructions.

          This is only the second Arrow manual stapler I have bought. The first one lasted 30 years and finally broke when I dropped it 12= feet to a concrete floor. I must love that kind of durability.

              As an artist, I am stretching canvases, and the T50RED has proved itself up to the task. The staples are applied with the proper force and mount flush. This saves time, not having to return to each staple and hammer it in. The grip is comfortable and the moment of stapling force is applied to the staple and not back kicking my wrist.

                  Bought this T50RED for roofing flashing and felt and worked well with good mechanical advantage and comfortable palm pressure cushion. By the way, after buying the PowerShot Heavy Duty Staple and Brad Nail Gun - 5700 for the same project, which failed after less than two sticks of #506 staples. A staple cocked and jammed it it was a dog to remove after which it would fire but not advance the staple stick. Also the 5700 has poor mechanical advantage.

                                  Have had similar before, this is nice with the rubberized grip so hands dont get so cold on metal. Easy to squeeze but a small hand will still find it challenging.

                                          I am very pleased with the T50RED stapler I recently purchased. It is very easy to use, especially when squeezing the grip to put in a staple. Others I have had were very hard to press down and this one is much better. I also like the variety of sizes of staples that I am able to use for different applications.

                                                      It's a good staple gun that will get you general use done.

                                                          I was given the T50 as a gift from a fellow teacher after watching me try to staple cloth to a set design with a very old staple gun. I was very pleased with how easy it was to press down on the arm using one hand. Thank you Arrow and fellow teacher.

Loading mechanism not intuitive (actually it is intuitive - its just that the intuitive way to load it -the way every other staple gun on the planet is loaded - is wrong. Finally found a "manual" on the website - no directions on the packaging). Was trying to staple less than 3/8 in of paper using 1/2 in staples. I got one to penetrate all the way through, out of a dozen tries (holding gun upside down, of course). I tossed the stapler in the recycling bin and bought binder clips.

                                                                  I am not a particularly handy DIY person, but I'd like to think using a staple gun is in my wheelhouse. I see enough poor reviews of this product and thought why bother, but after what I went through I feel obliged. I had a simple project: run coco runner down an exterior set of stairs for the winter. Mostly that consists of screwing in loops and running a bar through them at the corner of the stairs to hold it down. But it is also recommended to staple the rug down in spots so it doesn't slide around. I bought the T50 red staple gunâ€"strongly recommended by our local hardware store staffâ€"loaded it (easy enough) and then took it for a test drive on a piece of wood. I'd say it fired a staple in 8/10 times. A couple of times it fired a blank. I couldn't figure out any thing about *how* I was using it that made a difference. But I will say that went the staple fired it went in thoroughly. Great. I'm ready. I'm outside and positioning the coco runner (that's the sort of dried jungle fibre rough weaved carpet you see in the winter). I pull out Big Red and start to fire away. Nothing. Just to verify I hold it out straight and fire it like a pistol. Staples fire every time. Pretty good range on it too. I could probably use it for self defense. Back to the carpet. Success! Next staple. Blank. Overall I'd say I got about 1 in 20 in terms of staples per attempt, and I noticed it worked best if I gave it a little space, which in turn meant that of the 1 in 20 staples that fired, only about 60% when in straight, and even those I had to tap with a hammer to really get them in. I persisted only because it was a fairly small job, but I will not use this staple gun again. I just now tried another round of tests on a piece of wood (which worked well when I first tried it) and I'd say I'm getting about a 50% success rate. Given the other reviews, I don't think I got a lemon. I truly do not understand how this stapler shipped.

By its design it is very hard to load unless you have an unbroken sleeve of staples. If you are trying to use several short groups it is almost impossible to close. So I decided to just use it as a backup and began using my old T50 again. But now even under occasional light use The T50 RED is broken. The follower that puts pressure on the staples to push them forward is either broken or has come apart so it is unusable. Should have checked the ratings on this first. I wish I would have bought a DEWALT.

After that it refused to fire staples, even after mutlplie reloads. The hardware store also could not figure it out. Had to return for DeWalt.

However, it is very unreliable when using brads. Constantly jamming. Hard to load with either brads or staples. Most of the time part of the brad stays in the machine and has to be pulled out with pliers. I have to constantly lubricate the sliding mechanism with silicon spray to keep it from binding. It's also hard to keep latched into position. My older "staples-only" Heavy Duty T50 is still being used for staples rather than this unit. Too unreliable even for my occasional useage.

If I load a full stack, it breaks them up to short pieces. It works best with short pieces of about five or six, but I waste a huge amount of time using this stapler. I think I am going to throw it away.

I am stapling through 15-20oz. cotton in to poplar. This stapler drives the staples completely in to the wood, unlike my previous medium duty stapler which would only get them in about halfway.
