Take out the screw/nut combo @ the end of the gun where you load the staples. The whole rail that holds the staples will then come out and you can then get the little devils of the nested, jammed, rousted up staples out by sliding them out with a screwdriver. Don't jam the screwdriver into your fingers/hand when doing it.

I have had same problem and found out I had the wrong staples...If you know for sure you have correct staples you probably have one that is not visable that is jammed sideways....It is almost impossible to see....You will need a small long pocket magnet to slide inside of stapler.
I was having the problems everyone listed... with the staples loading & firing... I guess the instructions are lousy .. should be ON THE PACKAGE to make it clear.. but.. on the stapler itself on the bottom.. it explains how to correctly load.. you don't put the staples on the piece that slides out.. you slide it out, load the staples in the open tunnel ..then slide the piece back.. that piece is the spring loader... since i finally figured it out ( by coincidence that I turned it over & noticed some faint words printed) - it works PERFECT every time! great little stapler... please fix your directions... seems to be a common misunderstanding!!!
Typically you do not open these up. Makes it difficult to remove stuck or wrong staples. I have had good luck removing the staple ram rod and rapping firmly on the **** of the stapler against a wooden table. The idea is jolting the stuck staples into reverse out the way they went in. Tedious process but usually works. Removing the jammed staples in the nose at the striker plate requires using needle nose pliers and a sharp awl or small screw driver used on very small screws. My T50 Arrow stapler is over 20 years old. Still works great. Sometimes I slide in the wrong size staples by mistake. The process above usually works. Good luck!
This is how it works on the Arrow staple gun. On the back bottom, opposite end from where the staples come out, there is a little plate. Push it in and it unhooks and pops out. attached to a rod. When you refill with staples, just push them in, then put the rod back in and the spring applies the pressure.
All you do is open the end peice and slide the staples in on the two rails, point down. You should be able to see in the end to make sure nothing is blocking the rail with a flashlight. You probably have the wrong size staples. You can only use # 214, 215, 276.
