Re: nails jammed in stapler so I took it apart splitting...
Without knowing the brand and model number, the best I can offer is this: Since your question is listed under "all Black and Decker nail guns", have you tried going to www.blackanddecker.com and searching for your tool, or contacting their support section on the website? Or try typing your make & model # into a search engine, pick a place that sells parts and ask them to fax or e-mail a copy of the diagram (I have done this before to get diagrams).

One of the screws - furthest away from where the staples exit - has a nut on it... Remove the nut, then - using pliers - back out the screw. When I did this, the spring returned, a bent staple fell out and once re-assembled I could use the stapler again (for a few turns). It seems like the stapler is VERY sensitive to bounce during the stapling, you must hold it very tight (and flat) to the material so that the staple doesn't jam inside the stapler. Lousy product.
This can happen all the time... first remove the slide-in tensioner which pushes against the staples. Remove the single bolt with lock nut which is towards the rear of the stapler. Now you can pivot the staple rail down and out of the gun. Just remove any twisted staples from the rail. Now reassemble the rail by positioning the front of the rail to go into the small slots in the front of the stapler body and re-attach the bolt. You may now reload the staples and tensioner and continue working. Takes just a minute or 2.
I suggest you visit your local hardware store (Ace/Westlake) or you can try EBay, I've found numerous parts at great prices on there and they will usually designate what they will work with. Hope this helps. In the future, remove the material from your gun while keeping it stored, as this will weaken your magazine feed spring.
I have a similar issue with my T50m stapler. To remove the staples unscrew the locking nut near where you load the staples and remove the tapppered bolt. The track will lift out and the staples can be easily removed. Why this is happening is unknown to me also. I purchased a new gun.
I bought one of these guns today and I had the same problem and it took me about 2 hours to figure it out as the instructions were very poor. Here how to load the brad nails:-
(a) Pull the slider bar all the way out
(b) Place the brad nail stick on the left side, IN FRONT OF the slider, NOT in the narrow gap in front of the two arrows where it says "LOAD BRADS"
(c) The nail heads should be facing the handle of the gun
(d) Close the slider and lock it
(e) Try it out. I tried nailing hardboard onto chipboard. The lever at low power only put the nail in about 30%. On Hi power it went in about 80%.
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.
