One I haven't seen mentiond yet is a Plews. I've got one that's been around for as long as I can remeber and it works as good, or better, than any of the other ones I've got that are Lincoln, and Alemite brands.

One thing to remember is that the pistol grip types are only good for low pressure application. If your doing alot of fittings that need 'extra' pressure to get them to take step up to the lever style gun. That said I've known of several customers that have machines with alot of fittings on them. In both cases they bought the 18V battery powered Lincolns. One, I know has been using the same gun for years without any problems.

I've got to agree with others though, a good gun isn't nearky as hard to find as a good coupler. I've tried every brand I can find and haven't had much success there. I'm really to the point that I think the cheap, China made zerks are the problem more so than the couplers. Well, between that and some really poor engineering designs that put them in places where you can't get straight on them, and then also put them down in a hole that gets full of dirt every time you use the machine, etc, etc, etc. greasing just isn't what it used to be...

I have also had good luck with grease guns made by Plews Edelmann. I have a lever style and a pistol grip style one from them and both work well and seem well made. I also have a Lincoln 18 volt gun that is working well. It replaced a Lincoln 14.4 volt gun that had the motor on it die after about 6 years of use. Like one of the other posters said, the most difficult thing is finding a coupler that works well consistently.
