Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mountaindog Nice 16 ga. nailer.
Needed a finish nailer for trim, molding and to hang 20 sheets of 5/8" T-1-11 siding by myself as my trusty 1/4" crown stapler didn't hold long enough staples. I did't need a nailer that much nor did I want to empty my wallet for a tool I would use and store for a few months or years to the next DIY job. So I took a chance on this Husky nailer and wasn't disappointed. Light weight and easy on mildly arthritic hands and wrists. I wished at times the magazine could hold 2-1/2 sticks of nails while I was on a ladder and forget to check before going up. LOL.Amazing how fast the magazine effortlessly empties with a power tool like this ! If you plan on hanging full sheets of siding you may end up reloading twice to complete the sheet. Otherwise it's easy to reload. I would recommend the Husky 16 ga. nailer for the DIY'er for sure !

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by brucems Very pleased so far
Was upset that I could not ((and still can't) find my Porter Cable 16 gauge pneumatic nailer but after ordering, receiving and using this one I don't really care anymore! When I first took it out of the box it seemed heavy compared to the PC 16 ga. but after actually using it I see that is not the case. Well balanced and solidly built and the "free to move with me" male hose adaptor on the gun is a great feature.
My PC pneumatic nailers have been good to me but I will say I would have to agree with the reviews that say the 16 ga. jams too often. This one seems like the mechanism is very smooth. Just started using it so we'll see how it goes but I'd be surprised if any problems developed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 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......

I am not a commercial carpenter. But, I do all of my own remodeling and I do some side projects for friends. This is exactly what I needed at a great price. Should last me a lot of years. It is easy to separate in case of a jam, which hasn't happened yet. Very impressed. Only 4 stars because a case or a cheap bag would have been a nice addition to protect it.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 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
