Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by AMach Not Good!
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 to replace a Porter Cable my Father in-law decided was his. Anyway, this has been great so far but needs oil? Every other brad nailer I've owned is oil-less. This may explain the only issue I have had with it...the driver head head not resetting completely at times.
As far as not setting brads completely...I have had no issues what-so-ever. I use 2" on window moldings and they have always counter sunk as set.

i own alot of bosch tools and have never regreted a single one. this brad nailer looks and feels good in your hand, but doesnt cut the mustard. its unable to fully set a 1.25" brad in poplar with depth set to max. read all the reviews before purchase and bought anyway trusting bosch products. trust the reviews, doesnt perform as a brad nailer should.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by WIWoodworker Nice nailer
This nailer did everything I put it through. I used the maximum length brad. It went into plywood and hardwood without a hitch. The nailer is light, easy to hold, and easy to load. My only complaint is no belt clip. It does have a plastic magazine but it is high impact plastic and should be fine for my woodworking.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by skateboarder needs improvements
i LOVE the smaller size and the POWER , you can tell it's a Bosch.
feels great in the hand, very comfortable to hold
smaller than the competition
it needs a belt clip
needs a nice amount of oil before use, if not it will jam all the time
not very accurate, it shoots the nail at what ever depth it wants
when shooting 2 inch brads the nail bends and ruins the piece

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Marty one issue...
major issues: the tool is suppose to lock out when it runs out of nails. Mine didn't for some reason. That was the whole reason why I bought it. So I had to return it.
But, I still recommend because not having that feature still makes it as good as the competion. And the tool's smaller and lighter size and quality make it worth the money. I hope BOSCH will improve it soon.

Best trim nailer for fine finishing using 18 ga brads. Also purchased Bosch 365 jig saw. Very good medium weight saw for close work curves, circles & all those projects that need an accurate jig saw.
