Hi Felixmarquez.
Thank you for your question.
The Porter-Cable 16-Gauge Pneumatic Nailer needs a minimum of 70 psi to operate. Porter-Cable recommends 90psi for proper operation.
If you set your compressor at a higher level, the recovery time for your nailer will be quicker. Your 3-gallon compressor should work fine as long as you have the minimum psi for proper operation.
Please let us Read More

16-Gauge Pneumatic 2-1/2 in. Nailer Kit is rated 3.7 out of 5 by 28.
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

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for the hobby worker I have owned this finish nailer for a couple months now. I have used it on several projects around the house as well hobby furniture making. This has been an amazing investment. The nailer hasn't jammed even once in well over 600-700 nails. It has handled lots of use and in a short time and hasn't let me down yet. The "no lube" feature is nice too. Super easy to use and operate. Will definitely be buying a Porter Cable brad nailer for some smaller intricate projects coming up.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from For the money...I'd go elsewhere I used this nailer doing a job replacing all the base in a theatre, and I constantly had problems with it misfiring and jamming. Every couple of minutes I'd fire and there would be no nail coming out, just indentations into the base. After shimmying with it for a moment I'd get it righted, only to have the same thing happen soon after. For the money, I'd go with a different brand.
