Rated 4 out of 5Â by JimG Surprisingly good
I've used an old metal sealant gun for years, it's un-branded, no idea how old, it's a hand-me-down from my Dad.
It has only been used for general DIY stuff like cauking, no-more-nails, bathroom sealant, certainly not every day use.
I recently bought some gripfill and cauking and accidently bought the longer tubes that didn't fit in the old gun. (well gripfill did fit after I cut the empty back end of the tube off)
The cauking was a fuller tube, and so rather than go messing around I thought i'd just buy the proper tool for the job.
This Cox gun is well regarded and not too expensive.
The trigger action is a lot smoother, and easier to pull than the old gun, I feel like I have a much better control over what comes out of the end of the tube. I was able to produce a consistent bead with this gun, something I couldn't often do with the old one.
Releasing the trigger somehow backs off the pressure, so you get much less product coming out of the nozzle when you want it to stop. (still a bit though) My old gun got me into the habbit of pressing the release lever on the back as soon as I wanted to stop to prevent this. I still find i'm doing this, but there's no need now.
I'll definately be reaching for this gun first next time as it's just so much better to use.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by russelld A good value and well flow gun
A good value flow gun for the price. I would recommend this over the base model as it will last much longer.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Wick Everyone needs one of these
Everyone needs a sealant gun - this one does what you need it to at a great price, my last one went through several renovations and still going strong.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Flannaess Excellent build quality
Worth the investment - comfortable, provides good control when sealing and is extremely durable.
You buy these sorts of tools expecting them to last - and this one will.
