It's an oldie, but a quality goodie! When I bought it new 40 yrs ago, I bought a rebuild kit with it and it never needed it.
At the time it was unique in a couple of aspects, and still is. Name one for the bonus points.

Big Fish, my guess is Sioux tools.
And I say that it was one of the first variable speed pneumatic tools.

I'm saying it's an Ingersoll Rand and it has an integrated textured grip, is rebuildable with a repair kit, had a new quieter twin port exhaust. It's activation lever was a departure from the typical pistol grip with trigger (though it did not come standard with bailing wire and cable ties). Adjustable torque settings (which differs from variable speed).

I'm saying yer wrong!
Yeah it does have adj. torque settings, but a lot of impacts had it, no?

Yeah, the dam thing cracked when I dropped it couple of months ago! I almost cried!

I see the socket adapter which slips into the wrench ratchet end. But can not figure the hook end on wrench. Almost reminds me of a bead breaker. Or possibly a Hammond Piano tuner lol.
