Staples For Paslode Gun


Can anyone who uses the paslode stapler give me a little info on staples?

What staples are compatable with this gun?

The gun says 16 gauge, will any 16 gauge staple work?

What are the specifications to look for?

I know the sheathing staples that I use in my senco won't work and I don't want to drop $80 bucks and have the wrong thing.

Also, do I have to use the paslode brand?

Thanks

Any 1/2" crown, 16 ga staple works. Paslode, fanaco, and bostitch all make them. Make sure the length is right. Fanaco is prob the best $$

Paslode staples work with Paslode guns. Bostitch staples do not work with Paslode staplers. Has to do with the top of the staple and the arc that its on from what I was told. I have never tried Bostitch in a Paslode before, but have tried to use Paslode in a Bostitch with no luck
