About a month or so ago I posted about the Pink Atg's quality (according to Barb @ 3m). And I know some had concerns about the quality. So here is my point of view on the quality.

Its GREAT! I do not see a difference between the red and pink one.
I think its the same gun made of the same durable plastic.

Any one else has the 714 and the Pink one? If so please post your opinions.

I also think the color is brighter than mine. I painted mine a nice soft pink. But I still love it.

Thanks for the info. My only concern was getting that glittered paper to stick and someone answered that for me this AM, that the ATG will help that paper stick.

eta: now, to find one!

I compared the 700 and the pink one last night...i think the weight difference between the yellow gun and the pink one is due to the 700 gun having one more interior part (the extra removeable piece that allows it to accept 3/4" tape)
The piece that the rollers attach to seems the same, as well as the rest.

HTH

ETA: In other words, seems fine to me ........unless I step on it and prove otherwise.

My guess is they only said that so that people would be leery of it. Why not try to get people to buy the item at a higher price?

I was just thinking about my comparison......I didn't actually pull the trigger and roll the tape to compare.....my only excuse is that I was tired ......so, I will try to do that tomorrow.

I am much more of a lurker but had to post on this. I love the Pink ATG and can tell no difference between the red one and this one in use. I have misplaced my red one can not find it anywhere and had tons of things to get done. Buying the Pink ATG with a coupon on M's was a great solution for me. Its worked great so far.
Now to figure out what I did with the red one.

I haven't noticed any difference at all. I used my red one for about a year. I used it almost every day and I'm using my pink one just as much. I can't tell the difference at all. I love it!!! I used a 50% off coupon to get it too so it was less than half of what I paid for my red one. Gotta love a bargain!!!

This is why I bought it too! Although I already own one, The price we are paying for it using a 50% off (17.50) plus getting the 2 rolls of adhesive valued at $10. Cant beat it.

BranKir -

From another post - they are located almost anywhere in the store! I found mine at one of the larger M's with the scrapbooking section in the middle of the store - and the ATG gun was on an end cap at the register when you check out. I looked through the entire store and was heading out when I spotted adhesives at the register and there it was - at the bottom of the rack - 2 of them - with the refills next to it - just like everyone else has posted. I only had a 40% off so it was still a great deal at $21.00! Plus it came with 2 refills of acid free tape which was for sale also at $9.99.

Some people have spotted it in the adhesive section of the scrapbook isle, on the end cap of the scrapbook isles and others in the regular glue isle.

I haven't used it yet - just got it yesterday - but it seems exactly the same as the red - just prettier and PINK!


Happy Scrappin!
