Rated 1 out of 5Â by Apprentical Of no use to me
I would give this product zero stars if that were an option because I could not make it work. I am not a body builder but I am not a weedy person either. I bought this rivet gun to do a small job with a couple of 5mm rivets. I could not get sufficient purchase or power on the arms of the gun to break the rivet from the pin despite repeated efforts. As a test I tried to pop the smallest diameter rivet and was able to break it but not cleanly and a piece remained stuck in the barrel breaking the product.
Screwfix gave me a refund without question which is appreciated. But I'm motivated to write a review so others are aware of the limitations of this device.
I was fortunate that my job was portable so took it to a blacksmith who sorted it in a couple of minutes, for a reasonable fee much less than the price of this gun.
I did read some reviews of the product before I bought it but didn't scroll down as far as some of the negative ones saying the same as me now.

A quality riveter at a reasonable price. In 90 minutes I put in a couple of hundred 4.8mm rivets without any problem. It doesn't trap fingers and it ejects the ferrule OK.
