Stanley APC-2IN1 40mm Air Combi Nailer / Stapler
Good for general work
It's a great nail and staple gun. The biggest down point is that the piston that drives in the nails is wide so it can work with staples too. Being so it marks the wood when using nails and the mark is as wide as the staple - 5mm. This is would not happen with a dedicated nail gun only as the piston in that case is only as wide as the pin's head. Jams more when only a few nails/staples are left in the magazine. Overall it is a great general purpose tool and I am highly recommending it.

Staple & brad nailer
Very good product. The staplers lock in part seems a tad flimsy so I hope it lasts a long time. Doesn't feel too strong though. Good carry case, no staples or brads come with it, full instructions etc
Works well for all different woods.

Poor Instructions and quality
Having purchased this gun I was disappointed that my first ever nail gun should be so hard to work out. The instructions are very poor and in the end had to take the gun to my local tool shop for the owner to help me work out the nails I needed and how to load them. The instructions only show a very poor quality picture. Both he and I could not work out where to load staples.
When I did get the gun working I was disappointed again to discover that when driving nails the gun leaves a staple shape scar in my wood making the gun useless for the finishing operation I bought it for. Now in my cupboard where it will not doubt remain unused and unloved unless I can find the correct staples to use and somebody who knows how to load them. I have searched the Internet and YouTube for help but found nothing on this gun.
