My T50 would fire ONE 1/4" staple correctly and then jam, eating 3 or 4 and after digging those out do it all again. This was one staple eating machine!!.. I disassembled the thing, making some mechanical adjustments which allow only enough room for smooth feeding of ONE staple at a time and now it NEVER misfires or jams. These adjustments will take careful thought and filing of the end of the staple tray nearest the firing pin, along with slight bending of the firing pin to lay flat again the outside head cover. I also filed the outside "tips" of the firing pin to be absolutely flat where it contacts the staple. DO NOT shorten the firing pin if possible. Now I can get even 9/16" staples to go all the way in. :)

I think this is typical of these staplers/nailers. I bought a lighter model Stanley the first time and had this problem. I took it back and exchanged it for the heaviest Stanley they had at Home Depot and had the same effect. It drove the stapler a little deeper but not all the way.
I did find that if I put all the down pressure on the stapler right on the edge where the staple comes out and then pull the trigger it would drive the staple almost all the way in. I think that there is a recoil effect (like with a gun) when you pull the trigger and the staple enters the wood. Try this. it will help.
Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh PS Please leave a rating if appropriate Thanks for using FixYa

Either the pioston backed off piston stem or the blade is broken. remove 4 bolts holding shoe to yellow body. remove magazine and shoe. remove yellow bumper inside gun. Pull piston down and inspect blade. if not broken see if piston backed off stem. if so gun must be rebuilt and part # BC347 must be replaced. visit www.bostitch.com and download schematic and where parts can be obtained.
