Rated 5 out of 5Â by 01glide Great nail gun!
This is a great nail gun. I wanted something inexpensive to make a few projects easier and looked at quite a few that were under $50. I decided on this one because it: looked EXACTLY like a few that were more expensive (hinting to the difference being branding); 2" brad capacity; protective case; adjustable depth control; and price. The nail gun works like a dream. Only one jam and it was easy to clear. It can easily shoot a 2" brad through hardwood with a good brad. Must use pressure at top of range for that. But, 55-60 PSI works great for 1.5" brads in baseboards and moldings. The only drawback is that the 'depth control' is set by you externally regulating pressure...there is no gun control for depth.

Received tool on time. Coming with a case is a plus. Did include some start up nails. User manual was not with the tool and was not available on line. Had to get it emailed from the importer. User manual barely useful.
Have used the gun to install new finish work in a bath. So far with limited use, performed fine. Running on a 3 gallon compressor @80 psi with no problem.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Russi great little finish nail gun
I have a small project in the basement. I install T&G pine on the ceiling. (I ripped the suspended ceiling in a moment of anger out). In the store the finish nailer cost all about $ 100 I was horrified.
I ordered this gun and use it to put a 1 3/4 inch braid into the pine. It works great. The tool is very light weight.
The only problem I have is that the tip is big and I have to turn the tool 90 deg. around to have access to the groove. Also the safety is in front of the tool and the nail comes out about 1/4 behind. I had to get used to that.
I think the spring for the safety is to strong and can scratch or dent the wood. There is not jam release. I had no jams yet...
I noticed that the tool can make dents into the wood.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by None Great buy. Great performance.
I wanted an inexpensive brad nailer with two inch capability for a small renovation project (approximately 300 brads) for tongue and groove pine board paneling and window trim. I've used it a couple additional times, too. I am very satisfied, No jams, no misfires. At about $33 including case, tax and shipping it was a real bargain. I used Porter Cable brads because of problems reported with other nailers (not at HD). It does leave a hardly noticable dimple in softer wood. Long term durability is unknown, but at this price I consider it paid for already.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by munipit GOOD, LOW COST FINISH NAILER
I needed a good, low cost finish nailer for a small project I am doing. Mostly attaching baseboard trim. Since I am not a builder by trade nor do I plan to do a lot of projects that require a finish nailer, I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a tool that I won't be using much. To rent one for a week didn't make much sense when this unit is available at such a low price. This tool works great. I did have to order a second one, as the first one I received had an air leak that didn't allow the pressure to actuate the gun. As always, Home Depot was great in arranging the return of the defective unit and shipped out a replacement right away. The Home Depot customer service is excellent, this tool is more than satisfactory. I would recommend it to anyone.
