Rated 5 out of 5Â by Greg What a gun!
I just framed a 20' x 40' workshop with this gun and WOW! This thing is powerful, easy to use, durable and accurate. I've dropped it, covered it in mud, wedged it in between joists and generally abused it and it just takes the abuse and asks for more. I can toenail with it, line it up to drive nails into brackets, speed nail, etc. I recommend removing the plastic tip, you don't need it. The hook on the back of the gun is really useful as well. I use it to lower the gun down and hook it to my ladder or I'll hook it to my pants when climbing up on something. The safety can be used with one hand, and the depth adjustment works well also.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by TrapperJ66 Outstanding quality
The Porter Cable Framing Nail Gun was a good value and is an excellent product. First, the no-mar nylon foot slides right off to reveal barbs that help to hold the gun in place when toe-nailing framing projects. Second, a few drops of included oil in the air inlet is all it takes to complete preventive maintenance on the tool. The case keeps all the components together in one place.
At just over 100 3" nails so far and not one jam or mis-fire. I have other Porter Cable nail guns that I have been so impressed with and plenty of framing to do on my remodel. I might even build my own shop with this gun to make the most of it!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Rich Even though I have two framing nailers, I could not pass up the deal on this one. Home Depot and Porter Cable nailed it.
Great quality nailer at a fantastic price. Just remember to turn the exhaust port on the top of the nailer so it doesn't hit you in the face when leaning over the nailer. I'm very happy with it . It appears to be as good of quality as my more expensive Hitachi and better than my Cambell Hausfeld. It uses the plastic sleeved nails and sometimes leaves plastic pieces under the nail head. This can be a problem if the nails are exposed like the top of a deck but otherwise perfect so far. Most of the plastic pieces are easily brushed away. Every now and then I would have to pull a plastic piece out from under the nail head. This is nit picking and not a problem for framing.

I bought this in preparation for a decking construction project, and couldn't be happier. It really helped get the job done. Don't forget to buy a small bottle of pneumatic tool oil to keep it firing smoothly.

Rated 4 out of 5Â by Gooseberry Works fine.
Not being familiar with air nailers this one seems fine. It is a little difficult sometimes to get the angle just right to trigger it but we have done our small addition and it works fine. Kind of big for between stringers but we are green so maybe did it wrong!
