    I have a Snap-on...I forget the model...
    It was $150...15 years ago... :grin:
    I'd stay away from the cheap ones....they don't last long.

    Matco RL910A Long Barrell w/ Quick Release
    i bought it off the tool truck at work, IIRC i paid about $200. when coupled with a Mac Rivet Splitter, it can tear a frame down to nothing in a matter of minutes.

    How much was that? It actually SPLITS the rivets in half? Can it be used on any Air hammer, or does it have to be Matco?

    I use a Mac AH650. Bought it off EBay for under $100 for the kit. Think it runs over $200 when bought off the truck. Works for what I've done so far...:)

    As long as the tool has a "standard" .401" shank (which is just about every air hammer tool out there), ANY air hammer tool can be used in ANY air hammer.

    I have the snap-on PH50E(?) kit, the larger of the two snappy offers. Bought over 10 years ago and love it. Just like impacts and ratchets, get what ya pay for usually. My whole kit was around $280 IIRC as was my 3/8 air ratchet and impact.
