will this gun double fire?

Asked by: bob
When using the bump action trigger, be careful of unintentional double fires. To avoid double fires do not engage the tool against the work surface with a strong force and allow the tool to recoil fully after each actuation.

Customer Reviews

16-Gauge Pneumatic 1 in. - 2-1/2 in. Nailer is rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Extremely pleased with this unit's performance Have begun a series of home improvement projects, and knew a finish nailer would be a fine additon to my tool collection. Though I didn't have any opportunity to test any of the units, I did visit a number of stores to at least inspect the units for build, heft, weight and feature set, and the Dewalt D51257K came out on top of my evaluation. Subsuquently, after the unit arrived, i used it on my first job, replacing exterior door trim. Unit performed flawlessly, with no jams or malfunctions. I'll be adding additonal nailers to my armory, and will be looking to DeWALT for those too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very impressed with the many standard features! Over the years I have switched my entire tool line to DeWalt and have not been sorry. I remodel houses and need reliability and quality and I get both with this nailer. I like the fact that the air discharge port can be pivoted and it is very easy to adjust the depth of the "nail set". I was also impressed with how easy the manual was to read and I appreciated the clarity of the safety features highlighted in the instruction manual.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finish Nailer am installing crown molding. Where there is no backing to nail to I bevel a 2 x 3 that is installed in back of the crown molding. I purchased the finish nailer because I needed nails that were 2 1/2 inches long. Then I can also use the same nailer for 1" nails. And any nails in between. The nailer is very versatile.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent finishing nail gun Used this gun for finishing work in a house I built. Its easy to load and clear, accurate for molding nailing to door jambs, etc. Have never had it jam (knock on wood!), but if it did, its easy to clear. No oil feature makes it easy to care for. Really like its wide range of fastener lengths as it makes this gun VERY versatile.
