Sturdy. Well built. However i wished the seller would have put in few pins just to try the product out. I have ordered for the pins separately but il be receiving them only after a week, so cant try the stapler on anything yet. It looks good but what i hv recieved is nothing like the profile pix, mine is all steel body with a plastic handle. There is no description however as to what kind of work it can handle. Im presuming its a medium duty stapler for what its worth.
