I have an IR gun that I always thought worked pretty good until I got a Bluepoint. My understanding is that Bluepoint is Snap-On's kid brother. My experience has been that the Bluepoint works circles around the IR busting loose lug bolts that the IR wouldn't touch. All the while using my nearly 40-year-old craftsman compressor. Can't give you model numbers or torque specs right now, they're out the shop, I'm not.
I also have half inch drive 12V impact wrenchs that I carry around in my work trucks for busting out lug bolts on flat tires. I wanted to laugh the first time an old friend of mine handed me one in a parking lot when I had a flat tire on my 1966 3/4T Ford pickup. But once I used it I was sold and went to Harbor freight and bought two of them for about $20 each. I don't really like to admit that I buy things at Harbor freight but they were cheap and they really do the job.

Good luck on your search.

Have owned countless impacts over the years in a shop setting.

Snap-on titanium/composite had two sent both back for warranty twice now expensive dust collector.

Older Bluepoint and CP do all the work around her and are worth rebuilding, try looking in pawnshops.
