Stanley Heavy Duty Staple Nail Gun
Good but could be better
This is a solid and usually reliable staple gun. I'd recommend it because I haven't found a truly great staple gun yet.

So Screwfix what staples????
I purchased this gun and had punt at which staples I should use as screwfix fail to advertise that info. My best guess was to try a Stanley staple, I was wrong not all Stanley staples fit.
So here is what I found out.
Use heavy duty Stanley 0-TRA700 series, 4/11/140, G, 140 or T50 staples
Sorry I've not looked into the type of braids work.
LOW rating might be changed when I get the right staples (I'm not dim I just needed to know from Screwfix what type to use!)

Great gun and hard wearing
This is the second one of these that I have bought, and only had to buy a new one as I think someone has permanently borrowed my other one!!
I've had my other one for around 5 years now and although it doesn't get used every day, it does get well used up on roofs, tacking insulation and tacking beads, and it's never faltered once so would have no hesitation in recommending this to anyone.

failed after a few hours use
Good features and seemed to offer exactly what I was looking for -
stapling thin foil insulation to softwood timber.
However after a few hours light use staple miss fires started and then it stopped firing the staples completely.
The mechanism appeared to be still working?
Returned, refunded and bought the Dewalt model instead.
The Dewalt is more expensive but it seems much more robust & better quality
Finished the job over the next few days with no issues
I do not think the Stanley Heavy Duty Staple Gun is up to usual Stanley quality. Cant recommend it.
