Puckbag, it wouldn't hurt to check out Acklands although where I picked up the later ones ( and didn't work out so well ) were at both Gregg Distributors and Northern Metallic Sales. It seemed these cheep ones had soft jaws that wouldn't hold and mushed up like butter or the seal material was doing goofy things. Of course no company markings on them and I can bet where they were made though. Get some, try them and ether they work or they don't.

I bought 2 Milwaukee grease guns and they are by far the best gun and tip I've ever owned.
You can buy there tips at any Milwaukee dealer

We use MacNaught over here and I think they are pretty good.
I bought a cordless Alemlube and it's leaked from new. :-(

You can order new ends through Alemite. We had to order a new hose for one of our guns and ordered some tips as well.

I only buy the ones with 4 jaws. The 3 jaw ones cant take much pressure. John Deere ones are pretty good, but they should be better. TSC sells a high pressure one that's small and is the best I've used. I always get the smaller grease gun ends that fit in more places.

Last grease gun I bought at John Deere (manual pistol grip) has been really good but I actually had to take off the heavy duty end and put a cheaper one on it. It gripped so hard that it kept ripping the grease zerks out of the machines. Yes, I tried tipping it as I pulled, but same issue. Maybe I just had a poor one, but I will say that it didn't leak grease.

I have had similar issues with some ends and I have had some success in getting them off by losening the tip where the two halves join together. It seems after you twist them to the side to remove them a few times they lose there ability to seal and start shooting grease out all over.

I've never had a high pressure 4 jaw work better and last longer than a 3 jaw.

We were swapping them weekly. The lincoln high pressure 4 jaws that is.

Then broke down and bough the huge $10 3 jaw ones and they last a couple months or more. Depends who all uses the gun. They can be a PITA to get off though and they are very large.

Because of the the high pressure that the air operated and battery operated grease guns create I agree it's hard to find ends that will last without leaking. What I try to do is save the grease gun with the no leak and easy off end for greasing the hard to get to places and the not so good for the easy to get spots. I know time is money but I find with using a hand pistol gun I use less grease and have less mess!

Can you not adjust the ends of them so they are tighter or looser grip? I could be wrong but I believe I have done that on the John Deere ones.
