Rated 5 out of 5Â by Bigbry Great gun
I bought this gun on sale about a year ago as a back-up for my bostitch 16 gauge. I was very surprised when i used this gun trim a house. It never jammed one time with any nail size i tried even a bunch of senco 1" finish nails. It fires quietly compared to bostitch and it had power in reserve even when nailing Brazilian walnut with 2 1/2 " nails which it recessed all nails just below the surface perfectly to be filled. The only feature on this gun that I am a little disappointed with is the depth adjustment, its a little difficult to turn but other than that I am very happy.I use mainly hitachi finish guns and man it is just as smooth but at a much lower cost. Dont be afraid you will be happy as I am and use it just about everyday......

Rated 5 out of 5Â by aroyals Easy to use, start with lower pressure
We used this gun to put up the trim around our home. We used the basic 4" trim from Home Depot, and this gun did a great job. The instructions on the gun say to use it between 70-110, I found that for this thinner trim 60 was actually perfect, as 70 made too big of a divit to fill. The gun comes with the short style hose attachment, we use the long style so had to get a converter but that wasn't a big deal. Love the rapid fire option (turned on by a little red lever on the side), you just have to be aware of where the tip is so you don't accidentally fire a nail somewhere unwanted. Overall has worked great so far, we had used a 15 ga gun before, so we had to get new nails for this 16 ga gun, so definitely check that any nail strips you have are the correct gauge before you throw them in.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by john Light weight and easy to use.
This Finish nailer makes quick work of tasks without a lot of effort. The nailer will save you a lot of time and energy. Very little trace evidence is left behind as well. None of the hammer indents if you miss or drive the nail in too deep.
The nailer is very light weight and easy to use.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Salex Nice finish nailer
Up until I got this nailer, I'd always used an 18-ga brad nailer for trim, and I figured I'd try this 16-ga nailer for installing window jamb extensions and door jambs. One of the nicest features about this nailer is the pad and shape of the nose. The nailer didn't leave a single mark on my jambs, and the curve of the nose made it easy to slightly adjust the angle of the nail. Another great feature is the way the nose flips out of the way to easily clear jams; however, I've used the gun for about a dozen window jambs and haven't had a single jam yet (I did oil it before first use). Adding/removing nails is easy but you do have to actually grab the nails - they don't slide easily in the magazine - so if you need to remove them (which I do, just for safety) it's hard to grab them if you only have a few left in the magazine. On my nailer, the depth adjuster was really locked in place out of the box, so I had to work really hard with a plier to get the depth adjuster to move. Once I did, adjustment was easy. I used the nailer on the deepest possible setting, and I still sometimes had to use a nailset to "hide" the top of the fasteners. The nailer does ok in corners; I found that turning it upside down made it more effective at reaching into corners (so the nose rests on the curved part). I thought I would find this nailer too heavy compared to my 18-ga, but it wasn't.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Jimbo Husky 16-Guage Straight Finish Nailer
I got this Husky 16-Guage Straight Finish Nailer to use in my workshop for small woodwork projects. Turns out this Nailer can handle
just about any finishing nail detail. I have only one minor complaint and it is not with the Nailer itself.The problem is
with being able to purchase the 16-Gauge 3/4 inch and one inch nails in the store. The larger lengths 1 1/4 up to 2 1/2 inch
sizes are readily available and the Nailer works effortlessly providing superb workmanship. I still love this Nailer and hope
to see the smaller length nails on the shelf as I will be using this Nailer for many years to come.
I also got the Husky 23-gauge Headless Pin Nailer at the same time so I am able to use smaller pin nails with that Nailer for my smaller
