Roughneck Brick Mortar Gun is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 87.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty chuffed with it. I stone cladded a porch and was dreading pointing it. This thing made it so easy it was funny. As others have said though, the plunger gizmo comes off and was a bit of a pain, but I can live with that as it does such a great job. It would be even better if it was a tad bigger.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from A trowel is faster. Bought this to re-point my house. The mortar needs to be so wet you could paint it on. You cannot fill the tube by more than a third as whilst 'gunning' it squeezes the water out and the mortar won't come out of the nozzle, so you have to empty it and start over. It leaves a very untidy joint that you have to make good with a trowel. The plunger rod gets slippery when wet and won't push the mortar out when squeezing the trigger. The cap has split at the 'gun' end before I have even finished the front of my 4 mtr wide house. Definitely not worth the money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product I bought this mortar gun in the hope that it would make pointing a gable end quicker, my brickie was sceptical until he used it!! I ended up buying another and saved myself the cost of 2 days labour!! Ensure u use a wet mix n give the gun a wash throught after every fill and it works a treat, even my brickie was impressed!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece Of Junk - Bad By Design Save your money, I sure wish I had and would have returned it inside the time allowed if I had realised. This folks, will probably make it into my top ten list of "Greatest Ever Wastes Of Money" As a MORTAR gun it is absolutely useless, a waste of money and time in use. I haven't tried using it for other paste mixtures, such as plaster, but I am in no hurry to. I have tried a wide variety of mixes of cement, sand, water and plasticizer in it and it simply makes no real difference. It's not that it is poorly designed and manufactured, which it is. There are considerable burrs and malformations in the plastic components visible from where the moulds are split apart. There is a gap of about 1mm between the edge of the plunger seal and the inside of the barrel. Why it can't ever work effectively as a MORTAR gun, though, is the laws of physics. Water, plasticizer, sand and cement are loosely bound together and until the mortar goes off, when put under pressure the water in the mix wants to separate from the solids. Put a mortar mix in it and squeeze the trigger a few times and the mortar solids just compact inside the yellow nozzle due to the narrowing restriction of the nozzle and most of the liquid is squeezed out, either through the nozzle or even more of it back past the appraisingly loose seal in the barrel. The irregular grains of building sand just get squeezed together until they are effectively inter-locked. I wonder if it would be any more effective using soft sand or sand with regular-shaped grains? But that wouldn't be brick mortar then and I am on no hurry to waste more time and effort. This junk cannot work effectively as a MORTAR gun, by design. Try packing mortar into a 10mm gap between two 4" bricks by hand using a spatula and see how it compacts as you push it further into the gap. I wonder how many of these that have been bought to be used as a MORTAR gun are returned to Screwfix and other retailers?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from cannot recommend This gun simply does not work. I was sceptical about the ability to 'pump' mortar and I have been proved right. Even with a very light mix, very 'wet' and using a plasticiser (washing up liquid) the mortar merely compresses within the gun and will not exit the nozzle. Instead liquid leaks from the gun with undesirable consequences when working above head height. The problem might be related to my technique but I consider myself to be a fairly competent DIYer of many years experience. Unfortunately the gun is destined for the local auction.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Mortar gun and spares Very good tool, well built, good value for money, great for pointing but when grouting tiles it could do with a slightly better seal on the nozzle and the plunger. If you don't get your grout just right it runs back past the plunger. Otherwise, cracking tool, saving me a lot of grout whilst grouting non-slip tiles.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Three years on... Bought one of these mortars guns a while back, and just thought I'd leave a little update on what I thought of it. Prior to purchase, I looked through all the reviews and at the time the recurrent theme seemed to be that professionals looked down on it, but amateurs loved it. Well, I am an amateur and I absolutely love it. As a bloke, I love tools. Tools are great, they are ultimately there to make your life easier. This particular item makes life supremely easy. You wouldn't use it for building a wall, as the mix involved is too soft, but when it comes to pointing and getting cement into fiddly areas, there's no equal. Brickies will tell you how you can just pack cement into joints, well I find it a lot easier "firing" it in with this gun, you can get much more in, and launch splats of cement across gaps to parts that you wouldn't have a hope in héll of getting to with a trowel. As has been mentioned further down, put a spash of plasticiser in your water before adding it to your mix and it will make a nice creamier cement that squeezes through the nozzle easily (the wide orange letterbox shape one is best), and also keep a second bucket full of water handy that you can dunk the gun into and clean it inbetween loads. Keep the gun clean and it will last you, mine is still going strong almost 3 years on, the only damage is a split on the black tube retaining ring - and that was only because I accidentally ran over it after leaving it out to dry! As has also been mentioned, the only irksome thing is that silly yellow scoop - why on Earth did they make it bigger than the tube, rather than slightly smaller so it would fit inside to load properly!?
