Hello! Right in the description it says: "All of these amazing features are backed by RIDGID’s industry leading Lifetime Service Agreement. That means Free Parts, Free Service, For Life."
I bought this nailer last night. So far, so good and the paperwork that comes with it does verify the fact that it has Ridgid's lifetime warranty.

16-Gauge 2-1/2 in. Straight Nailer is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Complete waste of money I am a professional contractor specializing mostly in finish carpentry. This nailer is fine in very soft wood with a short nail where you can press the contact head firmly and squarely against the piece. If you lift it off at all or, are on a slight angle....grab your nail punch. The hammer mechanism in this gun is way too slow. You have to push very hard again the piece in order to keep the gun from popping up off the piece from the recoil, and I'm 220lbs. I've used this for over a year because of how much I spent on it. But it now collects dust. Do yourself a favor and by the Milwaukee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from RIGID Nailer Excellent product. Put right to work and performed flawlessly. Weight is comparable tip my old nailer. Swiveling connector is a big help, especially when working overhead on crown moulding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great nailer!! My old Porter Cable quick working in the middle of installing headboard on the ceiling. Purchased the Ridgid 16 Gauge Nailer and it worked great!! The price was very good also.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great tool A little more expensive ... But worth every penny. I upgraded from a porter cable that was part of a bundle package. This is a quality product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great nailer After owning this tool for two years I have no complaints. It's working strong and has prompted me to purchase two more for different gauges of nails.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light nailer, avoid Porter Cable nails I purchased the first nailer and it made it halfway through my first day before starting to pancake the nails and/or shoot them halfway in and get jammed in the gun. I checked the pressure, oiled the front where it shoots the nails out and it continued to do it. Exchanged for a new one and ended up having the same problem. Contacted Ridgid customer support (who were quickly available) and they said that Porter Cable brand nails have been showing problems because they started to manufacture the nail heads slightly smaller, which made sense because it appeared that the nail heads were getting bent over inside the gun. Purchased Hitachi nails and its worked great ever since.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very happy with this nail gun! It works great and is quieter than our last Porter Cable nailer. ... Very happy with this nail gun! It works great and is quieter than our last Porter Cable nailer. We have had no issues with it so far. We have used it to install trim in our living room and plan on using it throughout our house to install all the trim we are replacing. We found it to be a great product at a great price. Would buy again! You can't beat the warranty for this product!
