    got one this week from mpb and it's by far the best caulk gun I have ever had, really well made, doesn't make the caulk spill out once you have finished using it, I find it really comfy to use and it looks mega!

    Anyone else got one and found the same? I'm well chuffed with it :thumbsup:

    Sounds good. I'm always disappointed with the majority of guns, makes a big difference when you find a decent one.

    Certainly looks flash! I wouldn't want to get it dirty!

    It's great mate, I had an everbuild one before and it was good but used to drive me mad having to press the lever on the back to release the pressure about 5 times to get it to stop spilling out. It's not needed with the Tajima, not had even the slightest over spill and not even had to touch the lever once. It's definitely worth a buy anyway

    Haha I have been wiping it down and placing it very carefully on the floor so it doesn't get scratched on the ground

    Stuck one on my basket last night then removed it as I thought it was daft to spend that on a gun. If it's that good then I suppose I should treat myself maybe......-again !

    Yea got one from eBay about a month or 2 ago! Very well made and looks like it will last a life time.

    I can't make my mind up which I prefer ... The dripless caulk gun (not the chit model they brought out in the UK) or the tajima

    I use the dripless it's great! That Tajima is very bling tho, glad to hear it performs well too.

    Have the MK H40b from sealants online a ridiculous amount to spend on a gun but it has lasted for years and makes short work of viscous sealants.

    I'd definitely buy the Tajima gun.
    But at £68 a throw for your one @ahenrypd I'd have to be a full time Mastic Man to warrant that price. Looks a beast though :yes:

    One of my customers having trouble with the traditional skeleton gun borrowed mine and promptly brought one.
    I'm just a sucker for making my life that bit easier.

    The same one from my paintbrush. Just a bit of a mark up.

    At that price I'd want it to come complete with a near naked maiden that I could watch while she caulks the skirtings!!!!!!!
