This is a great product, I have been very happy with mine, I have used it many large projects as the single nail gun to nail a lot of sheathing as well as 3 1/2" nails for studs and other heavy nails, it has always performed flawlessly, I dont know what people are talking about it not feeding, I have used mine in every position imaginable with no issues, maybe they got a bad one, love the plastic collated nails so much better than wire, I definitely would buy this one again and would also like to have the NR83 so I dont have to switch out nail strips as much, I love how lightweight this nailer is

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BurrRidgeBoy Exactly What I Expected
The nail gun worked perfectly right out of the box. Shot over 1,000 nails the very first day! The weight is excellent for a full size nail gun. Loading was easy. The adjustment for nail depth was a little confusing but I figured it out with a little trial and error.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by weeddoc This is the one framing carpenters use.
Light weight with good grip. I have other tools of this brand and they are good. I checked with good quality framers in my area and this is one of the most popular. It came with the 'air chuck' already in. works great. I like it.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by GOZER HITACHI'S CORVAIR
Like the guy on 3/15 said, lots of jamming and feeding problems. I have been using Hitachis only for the past 35 years and bought this one for the flush nailer, that part I like. Don't know why they changed the design, but missed the boat on this one. As long as you are nailing flat or down it seems to work OK. Nailing vertical I have found that I can only load one strip of nails at a time. I you are only using it part time or not professionally it works fine. But you can't beat the nr83. Someone is probably still using the ones that they stole from me over 20 years ago that had well over a million nails through them.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by FramerJ So far a good little nailer
Licensed contractor, been using a NR83 for over 10 years and have put up countless houses with the same gun. Its getting tired, so decided to get another gun as backup; was hesitant to change, but decided its a little lighter and smaller and Im not getting any younger. Have had it for about a month now, so far its been flawless, same Hitachi quality, the smaller size was nice on a recent job puttin in roof blocks between rafters. If this thing last as long as my old NR83 I will be very happy. Only bad thing I can say is it doesnt have a rafter hook, but you can buy them for about $15...

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by homeimprovementguy What a superb tooll!
Having borrowed a friends nail gun previously that leaked, occasionally fired two nails on top of each other, occasionally did not fire, was heavy and somewhat unwieldy I began looking at a nail gun all my own for my next project. I could not be more pleased with this Hitachi framing gun! No misfires, ever! Fine control of air pressure on the tool - fantastic and it works so well. Nails going in a bit deep because you've switched from setting rafters to placing blocks just turn the little dial a half to 3/4 and perfect depth adjustment without ever leaving your ladder. It is lighter than other guns but seems super sturdy and tough. One other reviewer mentioned the 'plastic' body - no way, metal all the way. Very little plastic anywhere on this tool. Very ergonomically pleasing, great grip and no-nonsense easy to use. And I NEVER write reviews on anything I purchase. That's how good a value this nail gun is!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by rhn2 Hitachi 3-1/2 in. 21-Degree Plastic Strip Collated Framing Nailer
I bought this on line and Hitachi 3 1/4" round head framing nails in store to nail my patio. The price and the shipping for the gun is excellent. The build looks sturdy and it is light weight so it is easy to carry around and on my arm. So far I used around 200 nails and to the last nail in the magazine without any jam.
