Very happy to get this tool. I am a carpenter by trade, use my tools daily.The Lifetime Warranty is a huge plus! (drivers , bumpers, O-rings) Nice carry case, safety glasses, nails and wrench included.
The safety spring is light enough to eliminate any marking on soft wood. Other 18 ga nailers I have had left a mark on the wood at every nail, just shallow enough that it couldn't be filled. It's not a problem with this tool ! I haven't seen another gun that will shoot 2 1/8 in 18 ga nails either. The nail magazine is made of plastic, not sure if it would withstand a drop from a 10ft step ladder, but who drops their guns right? The Price is great. Ridgid is making a believer out of me. I am switching over to their tool line every time one of other brand tools wears out, simply because of their great warranty. I had a defective lithium battery on a drill, they replaced it free of charge and delivered it ( no shipping charge) to my doorstep.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Wolfman59 Another Excellent Rigid Tool!
This was purchased on short notice to replace my other nailer that died half way through my current project. Got a lot of millage out of that one, but I can't wait to have it repaired. Had to buy another one.
Although I've only gone through a couple of hundred brads at this point, I have not had any problems at all. It works quit well, all the features delivered as advertised. I really like the transparent nail cover as it allows to see at a glance how many nails you have left. The dept control works well, the swiveling air connector is a real nice touch as it keeps the hose from binding or twisting when you move the nailer about to different angles. The anti-mar tip still leaves a bit of a mark, so if you are working on a fine finished surface, be aware. I have yet to find a nailer that doesn't leave some kind of mark.
With the Rigid lifetime warranty (after you register online and mail in your documentation), you can't go wrong, specially if you can get this on sale, which I did not.

Needed to replace my brad nailer and decided to purchase the Ridgid 18g nailer. I am very happy with the purchase. The nailer is lightweight, drives the nail smoothly, and is very easy to use. I really like that it has a clear cover over the channel where the nails are loaded so I can see how many I have left, plus it has a feature (that can be turned off) that won't let it fire when the nails are depleted. I think it is a great tool for the value and look forward to using it for many years to come.

This tool is top shelf ! I used it on a project in my house that took 3 weeks to complete and the unit worked flawless . I read the reviews on it first and then made the purchase, The name Rigid speaks for itself when it comes to quality. I also bought their skillsaw and it too is a great tool with good balance.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Leedog Excellent upgrade...
Just bought this nailer and love it. Upgraded from a cheap (HF) version that gouged the wood every time. This leaves no marks at all and is light weight. Dry fire lock-out is great if you get involved & don't notice you're empty by looking at the semi-transparent magazine. Top-shelf tool and lifetime warranty option is awesome.
