    porter cable stapler ns100a and ns100b whats the dif?

    I am going to get a narrow crown stapler. needed one for the first time in years and of course didn't have one. so I'm getting a used one. I can get a PC ns100a in town for $40

    but I found a ns100b on ebay for $32 shipped.

    any one know the difference between the two?

    Just found out there is also a 100br.

    the 100b has a part that looks like it rotates along the back of the gun. Wondering what It could do. Wasn't sure if the A model was the older and very reliable model or if the B was newer and better.

    Or more than likely they are probably the same thing

    I did a 'little' surfing, all I could find is the 100b is oil-less where-as the 100a is not.

    Ok. I didn't see that. I guess thats a good feature if its reliable enough. I'll buy the b.

    thanks Ken

    Hey Keith, boredom, brought to me a little more info you may or may not find useful....there's the ns150b you might want to consider... btw, 100a came before the 100b

    The following was snagged from here

    "The 1-inch narrow crown stapler (model NS100B) and 1-1/2 inch narrow crown stapler (model NS150B) are upgraded with a fully-enclosed magazine for added
    protection. In addition, the NS150B comes with a selectable trigger that results in quick transitions between different applications. The trigger switches between
    sequential (single fire) and bump (multiple fire) modes. "

    Cool beans. thanks a lot. The one I was gonna get on ebay sold but there are plenty more. I may get the 150 b if it will do shorter staples also and if its cheap

    Harbor freight air guns are pretty good. I think that they have a 1/4" crown stapler for under $25. I have several of their air tools that don't get tons of use (pin nailer & wide crown stapler) For the money they have impressed me.
