Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 17 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by This is a terrific tool, worth every penny Might seem kind of expensive, but get one. Once you have it, you will find yourself reaching for it all the time, in situations you never foresaw. Here are some examples: I first bought it to do crown mouldings. I can't even imagine nailing them up by hand, and forget about the stick-on nonsense. Use a stud finder, make sure you hit something solid - saves on nails, saves on finishing. If that's not possible, like along 2 sides of every ceiling, I cross a pair of long nails at a 45 degree angle into the drywall - haven't seen it fail yet. Plenty of power to throw even the longest nail all the way in, leaving a little dimple that is easily filled with spackle. The nail gun makes it easy to get everything aligned and then tacked in place without shifting, which is the heart of a good moulding job. If you can measure and cut your pieces accurately, this gun will put them up perfectly and fast. It paid for itself in no time just on this. Also works great on flat mouldings, pine, PVC, MDF and other materials, but not so good on oak and hardwoods, which tend to split. I've also used it for light framing jobs. Tack everything in place with long nails, tap it all straight and true with a mallet, and finish the job with screws for strength. A fast easy way to make walls, door frames, etc. I do this a lot, tack up a piece with a couple of nails, tap it straight, and finish with screws. Or if you're lazy and it doesn't matter, make your joints with a dozen nails each. All you have to do is pull the trigger. I repaired my neighbor's old picket fence with this nailer. The wood was getting pretty old and spongy, but by crossing nails as I described above, I reattached all the loose pickets. Pop pop pop, just walked around with no extension cord and fixed everything in a few minutes. Finally, I've been building furniture. Simple Mission-style stuff that is sturdy, practical, and dog- and kid-proof. All built by gluing together various sizes of standard 3/4" yellow pine. All the lap joints are glued and then tacked with 1-1/4" nails from the side that won't show. This assures that they don't creep out of place when you clamp them. Where it is less important, I just glue and let the nails do the clamping. Really speeds the job up. Critical joints are screwed, but usually tacked in place with a couple of nails first for alignment. Nails are a lot faster and cheaper; I find the more I build, the more I substitute nails for screws. Even where I let the nails show, the stain fills in the nail hole and turns it into a hardly noticeable little dark spot. Edge joints are biscuited, simple sanded & oiled finish, comes out surprisingly nice and inexpensive for solid-wood furniture. Drawbacks of this nailer are: -- The occasional misfire, which is usually easy to clear. -- Making half a dozen empty nail holes before you realize you've run out of nails. An auto-shutoff or empty indicator would be nice. -- If a nail hits something it can't penetrate, it will do a u-turn and come right back out. Can be hard to fix. -- The little rubber nose piece disintegrates pretty fast, if you don't lose it, and without it the gun will indent softer materials. I wrap the tip in a few turns of whatever kind of tape is handy, works much better. -- It's heavy. There's no getting around that. A whole day holding this thing overhead is a workout. Final verdict: I don't know what I'd do without it, no regrets over the price. December 23, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best finish nailer out there I have had this thing for about 7 years now and it still works like a champ. I have dropped it from ladders, left it in a shed where it got mold on it, left it in a room where I was sanding drywall and it was totally covered in dust. Each time I just picked it up and started nailing with it. Didn't even wipe it off most of the time. I know this speaks poorly of my habits, but the darn thing just keeps on working! It is because of this tool that I started purchasing DeWalt products. Still using it today. Just went out and got more nails! October 29, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by One of my most useful tools! I've been systematically renovating my home and picked up this extremely useful tool for everything - from nailing up a temporary straight-edge, to repairing cabinets and laying moulding. This nailer handles all projects like a champ and has plenty of power to go through stacked moulding and sheetrock into a 2x4 footer with ease. I labored over which one to go with: 15 ga; 16 ga; 18ga - (straight or angled in either size). For my needs as a general nailer, I chose the one in the middle: 16 ga angled and haven't found a situation where it wouldn't fit the bill. BE SURE TO USE THE RIGHT NAIL STRIPS - my Home Depot only carried Paslode, which have worked fine in the 1.25 and 2.5 in lengths. This is a pricey tool, so I'm docking it a few value stars.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by I love this tool!!! This tool is fantastic! I recently put down real hardwood floors in my house and I used a nail gun with a compressor. I wish that I would have had this tool. I recently bought it to put up all the molding (baseboard and crown) in my entire house. I have only used it a little so far ( I am waiting for the weekend), but this nailer makes every job so much easier. It has the same power as that nailer with the compressor - NO JOKE! It may seem likes it's a little expensive - worth every penny!!! November 9, 2006
