Lincoln Pistol Grip Grease Gun - 7500 PSI, Model# 1134
A great medium duty manual greaser
I have several grease guns at home (including a nice pneumatic one) but I almost always go back to this one. The manual pump style on it is effortless. It holds both the 14 ounce and 16 ounce tubes. It doesn't jam up at all (the plunger is smooth to operate) and it's easy to change out cartridges. While it's too big to get into tight areas (which is why I have a 3 ounce gun), it's perfect for steering components, axles, driveshafts and other spinning components.

Pistol grip grease gun
Lincoln Pistol Grip Grease Gun - 7500 PSI, Model# 1134 is a great grease gun. Very strong actually punched through some fittings that my two other grease guns would not.

Unscrew coupler to attach/detach from zerk fitting
I learned this from the following review on another site:
"I did initially have issue with the coupler as others had stated and I wanted to make clear to everyone that once it becomes clear how the coupler works, it is a very good coupler. To note: I've never seen a coupler like this before.
... the coupler is in fact two pieces and you must loosen the pieces to allow the coupler room to engage and even lock the coupler onto a zerk.
The knurled (etched/ridged/hash patterned) area can simply be held with pliers while a wrench is used to loosen the female threaded 1/8" NPT. Again to some this coupler may appear to be a single forged piece, it is not.
Leave the coupler loosely threaded and adjust as necessary once fitted onto the zerk. You can tighten the coupler onto a zerk and yes, it will not come off if you cannot grip the knurled section well enough, but one need not tighten the coupler on the zerk that much to deliver grease leak free. ..."

one handed pump that works
This will be the last grease gun you'll need. Linclon is an old USA company who still makes quality products. I bought another one of these for my cabin. I have 4 other guns, 2 are 40 yrs. old and worn out, 2 are new but made in that "C" place and never worked right. If you buy Lincon you got a tool that will last and you have a tool that works!

Good Grease Gun
This grease gun is easy to use. However, I must ding it because the reservoir leaks oil. And the piston's handle doesn't retract when the reservoir is full.

this one handed grip is much better then the older style. It doesn't fit some of the places the other style does.

great gun, and MAN is it tight!
I had two old grease guns, both tired, both had to be held tight on the zerks when pumping. After using this gun I tossed the old ones. This one has heavy, strong tube-walls, is easy pumping, holds onto the zerks great, and I love the two nozzles (long flex-hose & short steel pipe). I use a short nozzle, mostly, but there are zerks on my tractor where that hose comes in handy.
Just one warning: I have a trailer with cheap plastic "wannabe" Bearing-Buddy-style grease-caps. The zerks weren't screwed into the cap, they were just inserted with compression rings to hold them in by friction. This gun grips onto zerks like you'd hold the neck of a rabid weasel. When I tried to take the gun off the caps, it * just * flat * ripped * those zerks right out...BOTH of them. Make sure your zerks are the screw-in variety - you can tell by the hex shape of the shoulder.

Great tool, our mechanics love them when lubricating during A checks on 747, DC10, 737 aircrafts. Very useful tool and very inexpensive as well.

Excellent grease gun
I was struggling with my old grease gun trying to trap the gun between my knees so I could pump it with one hand, while holding the flex hose on the grease zerk with the other hand. I got fed up with that, and decided to get a pistol grip gun. Not only does this model have a pistol grip, but it fits the grease zerk so tightly that it would not have slipped off or leaked in any case! It came with a flex hose much longer than my other gun, as well as a solid pipe in case flex hose is not your style. Excellent gun!

I needed a new grease gun for my home workshop as my old one seem to have wander away. I looked at several different one and liked the spec's on the Lincoln model# 1134. After I tryed it on my car and a lawn tractor I was impressed with how easy it was to use. plus it got grease in a zerk that my old gun didn't ! I would reccommend this gun to everyone who needs a great grease gun, ya it cost a little more but you get what you pay for. I would not hesitate to buy this gun again if I ever need to replace it down the road.
