Our new stapler came yesterday. This is a Uline H-704 plier stapler. It looks very well-made, and it has a satisfying heft in the hand.
I wasn't expecting a "plier" stapler, but it may be the better choice. Many people use manual "desktop" staplers, which are meant to be used resting on their bases, by gripping them in their hands. I think that this eventually puts them out of alignment. The Uline is built to be used this way.
I hope that it won't be hard to use for people with small or weak hands. We shall see.
