I have this nail gun and used it in my basement project. Framing and drywall job. This gun saved me hours and days of work instead of using a hammer or using screws for the framing. It does the same job as the more expensive guns out their, never had trouble with this gun. I used it with a 6 gallon Porter cable compressor and has lots of power.

A solid framing nailer so far. Nothing has broken yet. Used it assembling some 2x4 wall studs and had no problems (other than user error - bad aim). PLENTY of power for 3 inch nails - using a husky 60 gal compressor.

I am very impressed with the firing power of this nail gun. Each nail is set with a strong blow and driven with authority. Loading and unloading nails is smooth and easy. The nailer is lightweight and easy to handle with its comfortable rubberized grip. The air hose attachment point swivels, and the gun can be set for rapid fire or single fire. A fairly high capacity compressor (over 7 cfm) is needed to support the rapid fire feature, but single fire is practical for use with a lower capacity unit. The nail gun ships with the tools needed for basic maintenance and a bottle of oil for internal lubrication. I found the recoil from each firing modest. This is a very nicely constructed tool, smooth operating tool.

The Husky 21 Degree framing hammer is an excellent product that I matched with my 33 Gallon Husky air compressor. Now, this much air is not necessary but it certainly did the trick.
I had started a weekend project building a shed for a good friend in need of a housing for his off road toys. This framing nailer was easily able to handle our project. In the three days we were at it we were able to get the entire frame up, the side pannels, and roofing completed. Now, the nailer is quite heavy and it can take its toll on your hand/wrist if you are using it for some time, so I recommend taking small breaks in between getting your frame up.
I would have expected to pay more for something of this quality. The price is to hard to beat.

This framing nailer is a great low-cost option, with a price comparable to some other manufacturers' reconditioned models. I haven't torture tested it or anything, but it's worked fine for me without any feed issues or jams so far.
I wanted a full head option since I find them easier to remove than a clipped head nail. The loading mechanism for the 21° nails is really intuitive. It uses a bypass mechanism that allows the nails to slide right in and locks them in place. No opening up the whole magazine and worrying about seating the nails properly.
The depth adjustment was set perfectly for pine, and drove 3" nails perfectly flush into two 2x4s right out of the box at 90 psi. The depth adjustment wheel is easy to use as well. Its air usage is pretty high at 7 SCFM @ 80 psi, but that's for a ridiculous 100 nails a minute, which I'm pretty sure I can't manage. For how I'll be using it, I'll be fine with my 20 gallon Husky compressor which is rated at 4 SCFM @ 90 psi.
The nailer is well balanced and not too heavy. I didn't experience any fatigue while using it, but I haven't exactly gone a full day framing a building with it either. There's a single nail firing mode or a selectable sequential firing mode that lets the user hold the trigger down and contact fire when the safety head is depressed. I expect this Husky will hold up well enough for whatever a weekend warrior can throw at it, and it comes with a 2 year warranty.
The nail gun also comes with a small dropper of oil and all the allen wrench sizes needed for tool maintenance. I was a little surprised at the number of different allen sizes needed - there were 4 or 5 of them. The exhaust direction is adjustable, but a hex key is needed for the adjustment, which was a minor annoyance.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mark great, inexpensive nailer.
Bought this for $99 on 1/22/16 and it came with a palm nailer, oil, Allen wrenches, and 50 nails. After buying 1000 more nails I used this to build a wall in my house. No jams at all through about 200 nails. The single or multiple nail switch is convenient but I just left it on single. Even the palm nailer worked well. Not saying I'd use this for heavy construction but for do it yourselfers and light to mid duty construction it seems like it would hold up very well. I also like the loading mechanism that slides over the nails

Around 5,000 3 1/4 inch nails, not one problem. What more could you ask for at this price.
