Answer: 
This is exactly what this tool is for. You have to use the nails that are meant for this gun, but other than that, yes. I recently used this gun to attach 2X6 studs to concrete to frame in a door for a bulkhead.

Yes it can be used to nail 2X4's to cinder blocks, however this comes with a caveat. You must select the right size shells, to avoid over driving the nails and destroying the blocks. I would start with a lower powered shot and work up to the size that works best. There are many variables to consider as well. How old are the cinder blocks? How brittle are they?

Yes it can be used to nail 2X4's to cinder blocks, however this comes with a caveat. You must select the right size shells, to avoid over driving the nails and destroying the blocks. I would start with a lower powered shot and work up to the size that works best. There are many variables to consider as well. How old are the cinder blocks? How brittle are they? How well are they mortared together. You could have a single loose block and fire a nail into it and shatter it, but when it's cemented into the wall it will hold fine. I've used these guns for this purpose and sometimes it holds fine, and sometimes I've blown a hole into the block. If you are really in doubt, use a product like a Tap-Con. It takes much longer, but you won't damage the blocks. Read Less

Yes, that is what this tool is for. You may need to try the different load strengths to minimize any potential damage. This drives the nail so quickly and precisely that there is little chance of damage.

Answer: 
No battery is required. This tool uses .22 caliber blanks to fire special nails into masonry or other hard substrates. It is completely mechanical and the .22 shells provide all the force to drive the nails.

Answer: 
The battery is integrated, and only completes the circuit when in your hand. Pretty nifty feature, if you ask me. As far as charging goes, there are two options; Let stand in sun for approximately 2.5 hours, or let it charge in your hand. the current flowing through your body is enough to charge the internal battery in this tool. Good luck!

I need to install a poly vapor barrier onto my interior foundation walls, and I think I might need to go up the walls as high as the bricks. Was wondering if I do, if I'd encounter a problem shooting into a standard brick. Thanks.

Hi JP,
We do not recommend the use of any powder actuated tools for brick applications. We suggest using a construction adhesive instead.
Building codes may require you to use specific modes for attaching the vapor barrier, please check your local codes before doing your job. Please contact our technical support team to discuss the details of your fastening project at 800-726-7386 from 8:30-5:00 pm CT Read More

Answer: 
Actually, perhaps I should just plan on shooting the nails into the mortar between the bricks. I suspect this would be better than into the bricks.
Any other thoughts?

Rated 4.6 out of 5 by 46 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 22 special A long time ago I purchased this Ramset 22cal nailer to do a number of repair jobs It's pistol design makes nailing easy. Just load the 22 blank and nail. Note always install nail first then the 22 blank for safety reasons and treat this like a real firearm same rules Recommend using oil to coat metal and moving parts I use coconut oil to lube the parts Good size and weight. hearing protection and eye ware is a must. Jobs Iv done one example repaired a steel fence By ramshot #3 and 1/1/2 inch nail to firmly secure the rods one of many applications I'v used it for May 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome tool! As expected from Ramset, well made, easy to use, and quiet as advertised. August 23, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Well worth the money I am finishing my basement and needed to attach the bottom plates for the walls to the concrete floor. I've used concrete screws in the past but they take much more time and don't always make a secure connection. So I bought this one to try and it was MUCH faster and more secure. It was worth every penny! August 2, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Amazing! Works like a dream. Much better than the one you have to hit with a hammer August 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Extremely durable and easy to service Very well built. Engineered for safe but easy to use and service. Disassembly is simple and effective. I used it on extremely hard concrete and had no problems when matched with the right loads/nails. I would recommend this highly for safety, durability, and easy of maintenance. June 27, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Just needs Automatic option This was an excellent purchase. The price fit well within my "budget". The nailgun is large enough to hold with both hands for a more stable shot. Reloading was quick and simple, which was great, because my "project" kept moving, and the lack of full auto made it difficult to hit. Would have given a 3 star, but the included silencer prevented the neighbors from hearing my "work" being done, which I am grateful for. Would recommend to friends, if they have great aim and no need to spray nails at their project. March 29, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great for attaching studs to concrete. Great for attaching studs to concrete. You may have to test different levels of gunpowder shots to get the correct depth for your studs. April 26, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Master shot .22 Had this tool less than a year. Just broke in two pieces. Very upset. Metal snapped off inside hand guard where slide chamber meets tip of gun. I hope home depot will replace it, or give me store credit since I don't have receipt. March 18, 2016
