Answer: 
Friends, I bought my BT 1855 brad nailer several years ago and it has seen a fair amount of usage without any real issues... but it needs to be remembered that this is a lightweight (18 ga.) gun and the nails (brads) are only meant to really hold pieces together while glue sets up.. the brads themselves can hold a fair load, but nothing in comparison to the 15 ga. or even 16 ga. nails.... this gun only Read More

However, after a about a year the gun would jam up for no apparent reason. I tried different length brads to no avail. I also tried different pressures. In short, I really tried to make this work. After a few jams causing unnecessary damage to the projects I gave up. I'm not sure what causes the jams but they happen fairly regularly; enough to cause problems. I tried using the product in a semi-pro cabinet shop and would not recommend it to others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very close to perfect I purchased this gun for a great price at my local Home Depot. I had some trim work to complete and my old gun finally gave up on me. The gun has worked very well for me in the few months that I've owned it. It has not jammed and I appreciate the feature that stops the gun from firing when you are out of nails. My old gun would keep firing until I finally realized it was not shooting nails. I gave it 5 stars but improvements could still be made. I think Bostitch can improve the nail depth dial. It is a little tough to dial in the correct depth since the dial feels lose and it takes several revolutions to see a difference in nail depth. It would be nice for the dial to click or at lease have a bit of tension so it can be dialed in with ease. Overall though I would recommend this gun. The price, weight and performance are all Excellent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I could select 0 Stars!! I am a professional carpenter. We have tried and tried to use these and they have all broken within the first box of nails. We don't abuse our tools and can't seem to keep one of these things going. I guess I will have to switch brands and hope for better. We do have 6 of these and all have had the same problem. Worst part is Bostitch claims the driver is a serviceable part. (as in the same as a filter or something expected to need replacement) This means they will not return or replace them they charge you to fix them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from nailer or jammer? This gun jams on as many nails as it successfully drives. Hate this gun more than I can say. I would just use it to nail my skull and put me out of my misery.....but it would jam.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't go wrong with this gun I've had this gun for about 5 years now and can't begin to guess how many nails I have shot through it. It is tried and true, used and abused. A very very good gun especially for the price! It really deserves 4.5 stars, better than "good" but still below "outstanding" mainly due to the gun will double fire occasionally though not enough to pass on the purchase of such a great tool.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from garbage bought it, tried to use 3/4 brads to put in a piece of quarter round, it was firing the nails back into the magazine. i bought bostitch because i thought they were a good brand. they are doing their brand no favors by selling this gun. im not buying anything made by them ever again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So far so good. Only used it to install an island so far, but I was impressed with it doing that job. Used 2 different length brads and the transition was easy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Piece of junk This nailer is junk. I have had to open it and unjam it 10-15 times in less then an hour of use. I am on a job site and left my nailer in the shop bought this to save time and have a back up. I returned it to the store and drove the 2 hours back to the shop to get my old gun. Stay away it is junk
