Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Tool for a great price I've used this gun at My school and liked it so much i bought one for my own use. It Works flawlessly, couldn't ask for a better Product. Has adjustment on how far it you want it to nail the nails. And has a broken down part diagram in the manual if a part ever breaks. Highly recommended.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this thing I have a few nailers now and I gotta say this one takes the cake. Lighweight, performs well, looks great, feels great in the hand. I have a cheap no-name brand brad nailer that I have owned long before this one and never knew what it feels like to have a quality nailer until I bought this. The other one is clunky, all steel frame, the blow hole in the back is noisy and the operation of it feels to "industrial" for my taste. This brad nailer is comfortable in the hand and has a fineness about it. I am definitley going to purchase the whole line of nailers from PC, (Finish, pin, stapler). Great Product.
