Does this 1-3/8 in.pin nailer have a safety on it so it will not fire unless the nose is in contact with material

Asked by: woodworker7
it does have a safety, however it is controlled by your hand and not by pressure to the material as most 18 gauge and up nail guns do.

First nail gun

Hi-so I am looking to purchase my first nail gun for household projects like board and batten and replacing baseboards. Would this gun handle those jobs? If not could you kindly offer suggestions? Thanks.
Asked by: Cece
The 23 gauge nailer would not be a good choice. I would suggest a brad nailer or a finish nailer, 15 or 165 gauge.

23-Gauge 1-3/8 in. Pin Nailer is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 46.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Prevents Splitting the Wood on thin objects I read a lot of reviews on line about pin nailers and was amazed at the huge spread in prices. I narrowed it down to a couple of major brands then looked at the Home Depot site to see which ones were in stock at the local store. This one was a good decision at it works very well. I repaired a wooden picture frame that was deemed a complete loss. But some patience and the new pin nailer made it as good as new.

As a home builder i run into a lot of last minute "little touches" and this little pin nailer has become my go to. It's compact, light weight and the belt hook was an added bonus.

The hanger on the side comes in very handy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Silencer All around first class pin nailer. Form, finish, functionally, finesse are all top shelf. The 1.375 inch pins (nails) perform perfect on the much dreaded shoe molding. They leave behind no hole to fill. The gun is quieter than a subsonic 22 with a silencer.
