It's a good glue gun :) – 130W Hot Melt Glue Gun (220V) Reviews

Pros:
This does exactly what it should do, it heats up really quickly and delivers glue. The build quality is excellent, the tip is made of metal, there's a good leg\stand for when you want to lean it, and the plastic casting is rather sturdy. I don't have a safe way to check if the thermostat is accurate, but the glue definitely gets hot fast :) Today I finally got around to gluing my first project today, the trigger pushes the sticks nicely.
Cons:
I bought SKU.00633 [Glue Gun Glue 7mm x 27cm (10-Pack)] to go along with this gun, but they are not a good fit, trust me - I tried and then I had to open my gun to clean it up ... it was messy. The instructions were in Chinese, which is a bit of a shame cause I wouldn't mind reading them first ;) IMPORTANT - SKU.00633 does not fit this gun.
Other:
This gun is fit for 11.0-11.5mm glue sticks, thinner sticks won't push through well - don't try it or you'll have a messy clean up. I wish Deal Extreme started selling glue sticks that match it :)
Bottomline:
This is a good glue gun, I hope it out lasts my previous store-bought cheap one.
