Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by PCFLDIY Best brad nailer airgun for the $money
Bought this airgun to install all the baseboard and shoe molding after installing wood flooring. Best $27 I've spent ($26 +tax) for this project. This is a no frills, easy to use brad nailer that works perfectly with my small 2gal air compressor. Used it at 70psi and it never failed to put the brad at just the right depth for both the baseboard and shoe molding. Tried it with 80psi and it went a little to deep and at 60psi, it didn't push it far enough. 70psi was the right answer. Installed over 50 pieces of trim molding in less than an evening. Never jammed or misfired. Highly recommended for home use. And the case was a bonus! Great product!

Tool is cheaply built, using spring steel release mechanism for magazine lock. At the price point sold, it exceeded my expectations. The nail depth was fairly uniform, but did not always fire upon first push of the trigger.I found that a quick jerk of the trigger worked better than the more-precise trigger squeeze used for firearms.As a casual user of this type of product it is OK, but with the performance fall-off it would not be my choice for sustained use. My 1" brad nailer/stapler which was included with my $49.00 compressor works much better.
I would recommend this tool to a friend with this caveat, " you get what you pay for "

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by NormsSister2 18 Ga Finish Nailer - Buffalo Tools
I have been looking to purchase a "nail gun" for my 100 PSI compressor for a long time. When I saw the one from Buffalo Tools for less than $25.00, I figured I had nothing to lose by getting it. I was very pleasantly surprised when it arrived; it is very well made, comfortable, light weight, and has its' own case. Two inch 18 ga brads come with it; I purchased several other sizes and was very satisfied with the performance, whether using a half inch, or two inch, fastener. This tool is an excellent choice for anyone wanting to move to a power fastener that will handle many tasks yet not cost too much. I was a bit hesitant to try it, but now I have many plans for it. I will certainly look to see what else Buffalo Tools has available.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by plumbob excellent tool for the price
No frills, but works as advertised. I found it a little bit difficult to get the depth of penetration adjusted but once done it worked very well. If you have a small cabinet project or are doing some minor home remodeling, this will be the right tool for the job. It doesn't use much compressed air and is easy to handle even for a novice like me. I have a small hand carry, plug in compressor and that' all I needed for this tool. I can recommend this tool for, small projects, without reservation.
