I put staples in and the gun fired once. Now the lever is loose like the spring didn't reload.

SOURCE: Hi can't seem to reload stapler
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.

The staples do not go on the bar you pull back but directly into the bottom once you have pulled the bar back. I was trying to put the staples on the bar at the back and push them into the stapler.

I would agree with rowdy that the make and model number are essential to getting the right parts - If you have that information, just find a dealer that supports your brand. That being said, air leaking out the trigger area is likely to be an O-Ring or Seal problem. Pneumatic staplers have O-rings and Seals that need to be replaced periodically. Most have rebuild kits available that contain all the O-Rings and Seals that need to be replaced. Many staplers have O-rings and/or Seals on or near the trigger shaft that can wear and allow air to leak out

very simple to fix it 1 pull the trigger all the way out 2 there is a little piece of metal, pull it all the way out (detach the piece out from the gun) an connect one side of the spring 3 push the piece back on the gun. 4 on the other side of the spring tide a little fishing line 5 pass the fishing line over a small rounded piece and pull it hard 6 finally connect the side of the spring onto a little hock on the base of the trigger

The person that asked this is probably long gone, but in case anyone else comes across this... I had the exact same problem when I dropped this same stapler today and the spring came out. After examining it for a bit, I realized where the spring had to go and fixed it.
Open the stapler the same way you would as if you were replacing the staples and look at the top piece, towards the back. There will be an elongated black hook here to attach one end of the spring. The trick is where you route the spring after that... look towards the front end of the same top piece, and you'll see 2 holes in the metal. You need to push the spring up through the first hole, then pull it back down through the second hole (you may want to use a straightened paper clip to snag the spring so you can pull it through that second one), and only then do you attach the other end of the spring to the hook in the sliding metal piece that advances the staples in the staple holder.
And that's it!
