Best Flooring Stapler for 5/16" wood

Newb here.
Getting ready to install some BR 111 5/16 Angelim Solid Hardwood. I am trying to find the best stapler for the job. I've been leaning towards the Porta Nailer 461 Floor Stapler, the reviews I have found look pretty positive. The big question is whethere it will work with 5/16" wood. Porta Nails website only shows 3/8 to 1/2 inch, but home depot and other distributors call out that it will go to 5/16". So which is it, will the Porta Nail 461 work on my 5/16" wood. Thanks for the help.

Welcome to the forums! For the same money Bostitch Model SX150-BHF-2 is rated for the 5/16" flooring. You may can find one on ebay a little cheaper.
