A great buy!
Works very well as long as you keep the mortar quite creamy and free of lumps. Have used it for repointing an old cottage where the courses needed a deep fill. A real time saver.

A trowel is faster.
Bought this to re-point my house. The mortar needs to be so wet you could paint it on. You cannot fill the tube by more than a third as whilst 'gunning' it squeezes the water out and the mortar won't come out of the nozzle, so you have to empty it and start over. It leaves a very untidy joint that you have to make good with a trowel. The plunger rod gets slippery when wet and won't push the mortar out when squeezing the trigger. The cap has split at the 'gun' end before I have even finished the front of my 4 mtr wide house. Definitely not worth the money.

I bought this mortar gun in the hope that it would make pointing a gable end quicker, my brickie was sceptical until he used it!! I ended up buying another and saved myself the cost of 2 days labour!! Ensure u use a wet mix n give the gun a wash throught after every fill and it works a treat, even my brickie was impressed!!!
