Not bad but could be better
I'm a bricklayer who does a lot of repointing and thought this would be a good investment. Takes a bit of getting used to at first and the mortar has to be just the right consistency but once you've cracked it, it's brilliant and so much faster than using a trowel. The problem I have with it is that after the first 50 square metres of pointing I noticed I was having to pump the handle more and more.....turned out that the hole in the metal lug that moves the push rod when you pull the handle had worn that much that only the last 10mm of travel of the handle was doing anything. Seems a bit silly that they provide spare nozzles when it's the mechanism of the gun that wears out first

Didn't work out for me
The gun is good quality however I found it it was more hassle than it's worth and used a mortar bag instead.
Like other reviews I found the mortar blocked the nozzle very quickly and the water would leak out.

What a waste of money
I purchased this mortar gun to help with a tricky repointing job on my roof, unfortunately mixing the mortar as per the instructions it was impossible to apply enough pressure to the handle mechanism to exude any mortar. When trying to clean immediately the collars would not undo and one broke while trying.
What a waste of money, I would not recommend this product to my worst enemy.

Best mortar gun
I've done a lot of pointing wish I had this sooner. So easy to use and gets the job done in record time. Would recommend this to anyone.
