Absolute rubbish. Don’t waste your money on this rivet gun. Poorly made, lever action is clunky and does a very poor job holding and pulling the rivet.

Absolute junk. Don’t waist your money. The tool literally broke on the first rivet I tried to install.

Q: Will this gun work with stainless steel rivets? Regarding Part # 12-00178

Yes it will work with stainless rivets. It does not pull Cherrymax or CherryLok rivets properly.

Q: So, the product description states, “ Excellent for use on Cherry and other standard pop rivets,” yet there is an answer to a question on this riveter which states, “ It does not pull Cherrymax or CherryLok rivets properly.” Can you explain the discrepancy?

It can pull cherry branded "pop" rivets, BSP-41, ccc-32, etc etc. Cherrymax and Cherrylok rivets require special pullers.
