I think there is a member on this forum that has one. The one I'm thinking of getting is Milty 3 version, the reviews have been mostly possitive but one reviewer did say that he couldn't get his to work, As anyone used it and have you got any tips on using it. Nearly all the reviewers said that the instructions it come's with are useless.

I have one and they work if you have a static build-up on a record.

I have an older red Milty gun I bought second hand. It does work, but you have to squeeze the trigger very slowly and release it very slowly for it to de-stat a record. Mine did come with instructions, but I cannot say if the instructions would work exactly the same way with the current model.

Typically I only need to hit the record in 2 different places to get the static to go away. I do this well away from the turntable, since doing it on the turntable near the cartridge can send noise through your system which can't be good for the equipment.

You can also remove your mat from the turntable and take it away from the stereo system, and then use the Milty on that.

Given the cost of the Milty now I might be looking at alternatives, but haven't tried any. With static electricity I still think it's best to deal with it at the source (control thermostat, humidity, etc) rather than rely solely on an anti-static gun.
Reflex M + PSU-1 used with AT150-40ML, AT VM95ML, Stanton 680mkII + Ogura, and Shure M35X cartridges.

After watching a few youtube videos I put my order in for one. It pays to shop around, I saw them as high as £70, I got it down to £55 with P&P, I lot of sites were saying free P&P but they were charging around £60, so much for free P&P. The site I bought it off were up front with their price and even put down the weight of the item and cost to post.
