Product Overview

The best gets even better. The NR83A3 has the legendary durability and reliability you have come to expect from Hitachi, but now with faster driving speed and improved response. The rubber grip adds comfort and control while the selective actuation switch makes going from sequential to “bump-fire” simple, without the need to replace or modify the trigger. The hardened claw tip and two piece steel magazines add durability to keep the tool out of the shop and on the jobsite, right where it belongs.

  • Selective actuation allows transition from sequential nailing to “bump-fire” with ease
  • Driving port suited for a wide range of available nails
  • Rubber grip for superior control and comfort during use
  • 2-piece steel magazine for durability and replacement ease
  • Rear loading magazine for quick replenishments
  • Open nose design for easy extraction should a nail jam
  • Hardened claw tip resists wear and grips wood for driving nails at different angles

3-1/4 in. Plastic Collated Framing Nailer Without Depth Adjustment is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 27.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the investment Great gun for my wall framing job. Hitachi nail guns are the preferred nail gun over the lightning strikes the employer provides. Reliable, easy to handle and easy to clear when the inevitable striker jam occurs. Wouldn't want to work with anything else personally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best on the market! Any serious framer should not rely on any other framing nailer other than Hitachi. I personally have seen a lot of crews use paslode, bostich, husky etc etc and the majority have issues. I also notice people don't properly oil the guns like they are supposed to. Oiling your guns is a very important part of maintaining your tool. Also invest in a rafter or sky hook for your tools!! My 2cents

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hitachi round head framing nailer light weight and easy to handle in awkward positions. Sinks the nails no problem. there is no nail depth adjustment so you have to adjust the air regulator so it will not sink them in to far when putting on trim but other than that keep it oiled and it works every time and yes get a sky hook or rafter hook it is definitely needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nr83a3s When my dad framed we only used hitachi and really had few if any problems with the nailers they are 16 years old and we have replaced a few driver blades witch broke from daily use in the winter they were the made in japan version of this nail I recently desided to go with hitachi after looking at max pasloade and senco the max nailers don't seem to have the drive power and you have to take a peace off the trigger for bump fire senco are verry exspensive and to get there good model frame pro xp952 about. 350 in va not worth it with the pasloade I love the paper tape nails but about twice the cost as plastic and you have to switch triggers for bump fire so in the end I went for reputation and vale btw the nr90ae is not near as good nails jam in hot weather 2 3/8 for sure driver blades break in cold btw they are twice the cost to replace over the. 83 anyone who will use this any mount of time go with the 83 from the bestart

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This gun let me down I bought this gun to use off and on not everyday. But with a simple toe nail the driver randomly broke off and fell out of the gun.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great nail gun I'm a DIY'er building my own home and bought this nailer for that purpose. I have framed, sheathed, trimmed and sided my entire home with this gun with very few problems. This gun was dropped from a height of over 12' unto a concrete slab when the air hose came apart. I thought it was toast. After looking it over and then trying it out, there was no damage whatsoever. No dents, no scratches. Amazing! The only peeve I have is that it will jam easily if the plastic holding the nails together is broken. It also would be nice if there was a provision for hanging the gun up when you're up in the roof framing and trying to position your work. Would have been a nice feature when I was setting my trusses.
