Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jimmy Excellent product, built to last!
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.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Rusty So much easier then using a hammer
I have several nail guns but never had a framing nailer. I always just used a hammer. But I was amazed at how fast you can frame out a wall with this tool. I only have a small compressor and it has no problem driving 3" nails. Its a little hard on the hand after a while but I just take a break in between walls. We are framing out our pole barn so we can add plywood to use to hang tools. For the price this nailer is perfect.

Got this framing nailer to assist with many ongoing weekend warrior projects, and it has worked like a dream. Easy to use and extremely powerful. With only a small 60lb compressor it effortlessly drove nails into 100 year old 2 x 8s to attach a hanging mechanism in the basement. The hand grip is flimsy, but padded gloves reduced the tension on my hand. Overall, I definitely recommend it. It saves a lot of time!
