Sioux?

What do you guys think of Sioux tools? I'd always heard their rivet guns were really good.

Sioux makes a very good rivet gun, but I've found them to be a touch pricey. For the amount of rivets that a typical Airstream restorer will shoot in a lifetime, a less expensive model will out last us all. I've been abusing a Taylor rivet gun since the early 80's and have never had a problem. My 2X gun is a USATCO, 3X & 4X are both Taylors and my 5X is a CP. If you can find a old Jiffy or Desoutter these are real good guns too.

Just received my new rivet gun today from http://www.aircraft-tool.com/shop/de....aspx?PageNo=1 and dove my first practice rivets, out of the first 10, had 9 good ones. Had complete control of the rivet at all times, can't say that with the $3.00 air hammer from Harbor Freight. Will go thru a bag before going on to the real thing.
