Rated 3.6 out of 5 by 25 reviewers.
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by ok for diy, not for pros i bought this gun 3 years ago as i needed a 16 gauge. unfortunately it requires a high number of nails to break it in. you have to shoot a nail then push the magazine clip forward.. repeat for close to 500 nails. even still the gun would misfire too often for proffesional use or the drive pin would slip off the nail leaving 2 marks on material.. no good for stain grade work. for pro's id reccomend paslode or Grex nailers September 27, 2012
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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%. February 5, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 April 19, 2010
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Still the best never a misfire never jammed shoots nails w no problem. Porter Cable is still top of the line in my book August 8, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Great for baseboards Used this to finish bedroom baseboards and door trim. It doesn't use oil drops like an older version requires. The trigger reset sticks once and a while, but maybe that will get better with use over time. January 9, 2012
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by porter cable fail was fine for a while but then nail set started failing. my guess would be the nail guide was made out of cheep material causing nail set to get sloppy and slip off. fine for a diy but quite expensive for that. price represents professional tool and quality does not.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by replaced my old one I bought this to replace my 15 year old finish was a porter-cable too. This new one has a better rubber shoe design & I love the built-in belt hook. April 23, 2013
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The clips of nails dont slide in, you have to use your fingers to guide them down in place. Other than that, keep it well olied like any nail gun around work sites all day, and it works great. Never have had any problems, owned and used many times over about 2 years now. April 3, 2010
