This reminds me when the Chinese took over the DOM tube industry.... 35 thousands ID run out over 18" of premium DOM tubing.
This time I have purchased three brands of grease guns and not one fits the zerks on anything I have.
I returned one and they sent me another and it didn't fit. Lucky me I have a grease gun from the 70's and it fits everything.

I went to Amazon and read several reviews and it seems like a good grease gun is a rarity today.

Look up Macnaught K32 FLEXIGUN. This is a great 10,000 psi grease gun but the company that sold them in the US stopped carrying them at $40 so now you have to scour ebay and amazon.

Absolutely the MacNaught! I did a bunch of research here a few years ago when looking for a grease gun and never been disappointed with this one.

Hmmm. Is that why I have a hard time forcing the gun on to my zerks? So far I've been able to grease everything but it's a fistfight. I bought my first grease gun and I got it from the parts store. It was like $30. I've no frame of reference whether it's [censored] or not. They could all he like that for all I know.

Hate to state the obvious, but you are loosening the collar on the tip right? If you have that tightened all the way down, it'll never fit over a zerk.

Lincoln 1134 grease gun


That should fix you up. $35-$40

Forty five years on Sears grease gun and no problems. Used it this AM. Leaks oil out the end cap so have to store it in a bucket. PITA but it works.

Thanks- the parts are poorly machined on all the guns and I assume castings in that area- really bad as I looked at them today. Plus they all leak and are just junk- my fault wink
