  • Jam renders stapler useless
  • August 21, 2013

On a normal project, normal 5/16 T50 staples, it jammed. No way to retrieve staple as it flipped sideways in channel. I prefer the Stanley SharpShooter. The entire channel can be inspected while loading or unloading. just saying.

Pros: Light Weight Cons: Difficult to Use, jams

  • Powershot is JUNK
  • January 07, 2014

This product is absolute trash. I bought the first one at HD and it jammed every third time I tried to shoot a staple. Had to keep removing the silver staple track. Returned it. The second one I bought was in brand new packaging and had a broken trigerring mechanism and never was able to shoot a single staple. Please DO NOT buy this defective product.

Cons: Not Durable, broken out of the package

  • Jams every 5 or 6 staples.

I'd discourage anyone from buying this. It started jamming as soon as I got it home. It would get one or two staples in and then jam. The more I tried to use it the more frequently it would Jam. I was so disappointed with the performance of this product.

  • jams easily and difficult to fix
  • May 23, 2013

I have put about 300-400 staples through this stapler. On two occations, I have had to take the stapler apart in order to clear a jammed staple, and the second time part of the aluminum body broke in the process. This thing is very difficult to get back together once you have it open. I did get it back together, and it still works, but I have never had this much trouble with a staple gun.

Cons: Not Durable, jams

  • Jammed and broke within one hour
  • May 13, 2014

Had original power shot for over 10 years. Well made reliable, just wore it out. Therefore, purchased another due being a great product. Found the new power shot to be very chinsy. Cheap materials, redesign is substandard. Official piece of junk. Jammed on the first use. Unjammed - then jammed. Very disappointed after being so satisfied.Thru it in the garbage.

Pros: none Cons: Not Durable, piece of junk.

  • Poor Performance
  • May 22, 2010

I've had this stapler for 5 years and it has never worked correctly. It won't staple into any sort of wood, even pine. When I squeeze it to staple, no staples come out the first time. I have to raise the bar back up and squeeze it again and the staple barely goes into the wood. I'm throwing it out today!

  • Quality isn't what it once was.
  • August 27, 2012

I bought one of these 10 years ago and it still works beautifully. I bought two more to use in my classroom this past year (2012) with high school students and both of them jammed and the mechanism inside has broken. This shouldn't have happened so soon! I was sorely disapointed- especially after bragging about what a great staple gun it (should have been) was!

Pros: Easy to Use, Accurate, Good Size & Weight Cons: Not Durable
