This is my second Porter Cable roofing nailer. My first one is 15 years old and still working fine. I wanted an additional one for a helper. These nailers are less expensive than the others, but I don't know how another brand could work better. Some are lighter, but this model is tougher than a boot.

Had some problem with misfiring and jambing. The price was good but had problems with the gun.

Jammed constantly and then broke after putting down approx 600 sq feet of shingles. Repair kit around $85 which I did not buy - just tossed the nailer. Rented a Hitachi - laid down 2000 sq feet with no jams or other problems. Immediately went out and bought a Hitachi for my next job.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tools reasoning behind jam's
i have all porter cable air tool. I have an older P.C. coil nailer and called for a repair kit ( $75.- ) is a lot compared to bostiches I've fixed for other friend's which was cheaper ( $ 25.- ) . but as far as a roofng gun , people don't think to use " kerosene " to keep the outlet port where nails come out , clean. because " Tar " from the shingle's builds up on the ejecter . that " Tar " will eventually build up and jam that ejecter. as for nails jamming you are not using it correct. ask me about nails jamming. I do not have this problem because coil is set in right. REMEMBER : USE THE OIL AND USE KEROSENE TO KEEP EJECTER CLEAN.

I really love this nail gun,it fires great and easy to clear in the rarity of jamming up.

This nailer is worthless. I have 4 other porter-cable pieces of equipment and love them, this one is just going to jam on you and then you will return it just like all the other people who's review I did not read until after the fact. Mine jammed on the first coil of nails and I could not clear the jam. Tried for 30 minutes before I gave up and took it back to the store. I then went to exchange it for the exact same nailer and then stumbled upon all these reviews where others had the same experience. There is clearly a design flaw here. Unless of course you really want to stop your project, go inside and drink beer. If that is the case, this tool is for you.

Worst nail gun I have ever bought and only one I've bought in my life. It jams ever other nail or would double fire 2 nails and jam. I've tried oiling it changing the dial on it. Plus even worse with galvanized nails. Be smart buy a better product then this one

The gun shot the first nail then the piston got stuck. returned it got new one. tried that one,after about 2 coils of nails the gun kept turning nails and getting stuck in the end of the gun had to us punch to push piston in to get nail unstuck.
