Out of the 12 rivets I used I had to dismantle the gun at least 9 times to release the pin and once with the rivet half compressed. Waste of money and time using this tool. It has been returned!

Great product - feels well made. Bit more expensive than the budget models, but seems worth it.

So it costs Â£10 - Â£15 more than the Forge Steel alternatives and I bought this after one of those failed miserably. It did however highlight to me just how good this riveter is in comparison. It operates with one hand and has an optional spring to reset and eject the spent rivet.
I did need to loosen off the nut on the back a lot to get it to eject them easily.
Also be warned the different heads in the body are very tight and the tiny supplied spanner was barely capable of undoing them the first time.
This riveter sped through the remainder of the job that the Forge Steel failed to complete. Overall, a great product and highly recommended.
