I was excited about the possibilities of these new nailers so I bought both the 18 and 16 gauge nailers. Neither is capable of sinking nails completely. I tried increasing the air pressure to nearly 120 psi, tried different compressors and even switched hoses. Thanks goodness I tested them before using them on finished work! I am so disappointed with both purchases and can't believe unproven and unreliable technology is being released. Frustrated to have to send both back and eat the shipping costs. Buy another brand.

Bought this gun to replace a porter cable. I figured Bosch had figured out the air nailers but this one disappoints. The adjustment for the depth is average. The reload lever is above average. The air director is above average. A swivel air connector would have been a nice feature, Bostich crown stapler I recently purchased had one. The major flaw is this nailer will just not drive a 1.5" inch brad into 3/4 oak. I wasted money. I have cranked the regulator up too far for my comfort and still will not bond two pieces of oak. Flush possibly, but no consistent counter sinking. Soft materials obviously are easier to work with but I had hoped this product would have worked with hardwoods. Porter cable I borrowed to see if it just can't be done, no, the Bosch nailer just can't do. Disappointed.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Verified Reviewer frustrating
User manual is not available online (message was "could not be found") .Gun was purchased new from the store but without a manual on a weekend. Even with adjustments to the gun and to the air pressure the nails do not go in deep enough. had to manually sink every nail. Was used for mdf casings & last rows of hardwood flooring. The shroud around the driver should be removable for T&G flooring. very frustrating. Lightweight compact design, nice balance, easy to load & unload, looks good but...

This is the third size of nailer I have from Bosch. It worked well on the tasks I put it through. It is fairly light weight and easy to handle. Great features, as I have found in all their nailers I own. My main concern may be overcome with more time with the tool but I found the loading and unloading of nails to be somewhat clumsy. It could use a belt clip also.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by trimmer not what I expected
It's light weight, and portable but for my trade as finish carpenter
as soon I started setting nails a little faster it left them sticking out
Not good for me.

The worst gun I have ever use. I would recommande a bostitch that is half the price.
All plastic... if it falls from my pouch I think it will be completely destroyed.
