After a lot of research i bought this item. First i purchased the 21* model FR350B and returned it for the FC350B. FR is for Round head and FC is for Clipped head nails. However the FC350B uses both round or clipped in the paper collated form. This makes your gun compatible with many on the market and out in use in the field today. Helpful when buying and sharing nails with other friends/contractors. After researching the paper collated nails; they are said to be safer as the paper gets desintigrated in the worked product. Whereas the plastic on the 21* FR nails get lodged in the mechanism or ejected. Even with goggles or protective eye wear you don't want to have to think about cast off while working...either for the user or others and you certainly don't want to spend time unjaming your gun. The FC is 30* angle which sets the nail cartridge closer to the handle providing more compact space to fire in close spaces. You'll appreciate it when its needed, but seems second nature while working with it. Both models come with a case, rafter/belt hook, two cushion heads, and adjustable exhaust. Great accessories for the price that many other manufactures lack. Get the industrial fittings for your compressor hook up.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by AmbitiousHomeowner Good Nail Gun for the Money
Works great out of the box. The rubber bumper seems a little flimsy and I am sure that will be one of the first things to break or lose. Went through a box of ring shanks with one misfeed which was probably my fault anyway. Time will tell but if this is anything like my last one it should hold me over for the next 10 years. Homeowner with big ambitions.

I have a large assortment of Porter Cable air nailers including the FR350A but when I was out shopping on Black Friday, I could not believe that they were practically giving away this gun for a buck-29. I couldn't get this thing in the basket quick enough and I've been using it every day since. To compare the two guns, the FR350A is a workhorse but this gun can run circles around it on every level. The FR is a round head only using plastic collated 22 deg nails and weighs ~15 pounds. The FC will take both round or clipped head paper collated in the 30-34 deg range, weighs ~7.5 pounds and has has been redesigned to drive 3.5" nails in engineered lumber. The gun comes equiped with Tool-lessTrigger Selection, Tool-less Depth Adjustment, Framers Hook, Low-Nail Lockout, Case, Oil, Allen Wrench, & Manual. As of today, you can still get this gun at this incredible price but you will have to do some looking as most stores sold out quickly.
