16-Gauge Pneumatic 2-1/2 in. Nailer Kit is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 30.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Jam jam jam Two days into trim work and I've had a jam almost every 10 nails or so. Running about 90psi using the porter cable 2" 16ga nails. Jams are not exactly easy to clear either. You have to unclip the front, then push the nail back into the feed side, then finagle it out and reload your nails. What a pain. I'm taking it back today for something else.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Contractor/Carpenter What I like most about this product is the compact size as compared to other brands. It allows the user to get in tight spaces inorder to complete the task at hand. I found that as long as you oil the nailer according to manufacturer specs and due minor routine cleaning the nailer functions like new every time. I have been using mine for 5 years and never had any problems. I find it perfect to use on base moulding, door and window trim, and just about anything else that requires fastening. A hammer is a thing of the past, this tool cuts down working time by at least 50%.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST GUN I EVER USED My old one is 5yrs old with 100's of hrs of use ,gave it to my dad (3 gun combo) and I went out and bought a new one(3 gun combo) BEST TRIM GUNS ON THE MARKET!!!!!! I do remodeling so I'm constantly using them with almost every job. Rubber nose can be taken off for that hard to get shot on heavy angles to sink nailhead
