This is an invaluable tool! I'll always have an air compressor and nailers on site, but this nailer is awesome. Expect to load more nails with 4 remaining in the magazine. Way to go dewalt.

    Constantly Jamming
    I've had constant trouble with this gun jamming, no matter what type of nail and no matter what type of material I'm trying to nail. I wish I hadn't bought this gun, it's been nothing but trouble. The latest issue is trying to nail with 2 1/2" hot dipped galvanized nails into fiberboard trim (see example pic). After failing outside, I took the gun inside and tried it to see what was happening, the nails don't even penetrated through the fiber board. Should have bought a pneumatic gun.

        This nailer is increadible! Purchased for a fence build, and wow did it perform! Able to adjust nail depth and use difference size nails that changed out in seconds. My days of hauling a compressor, hoses, and extension cords to a job site is over. I have changed out virtually all my power tools with the DeWALT cordless line. The battery life is fantastic, and I can exchange all my batteries from tool to tool if needed. I highly recommend... THEY NAILED IT !

        I am home remodeler by accident - first home fell apart on me. I've since redone two always borrowing a friend's pneumatic framing nailer. When the time came to get my own, I was hesitant to go all in with cordless. The reviews said it would be heavy and I'm not the strongest guy. But I have several 20V DeWalt tools and decided to take the dive. I've had the DeWalt cordless 21° framing nailer for 1 month now. lt is worth every penny. It fits well in my hand and drives 3"+ nails like it's no big deal. Set it for deep penetration and it will do toe nailing without needing any follow up. The weight can get to me after a long string of overhead nails, but it also provides the mass the tool needs to not bounce from old lumber. Usually, I'm not so fast that it makes my hand tired - I set it down while get the next board in place. Not dragging around the compressor is wonderful! It isn't so great I'll throw my pneumatic tools away to buy up. But when they die, it will be tough to choose. I highly recommend this product. Enjoy!

        Great Nailer, Saves Time
        [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This worked great for my needs. Lost a star not so much for the weight to me, the box of nails (1000pk) felt heavier. The magazine capacity is just too low for me. The capacity is 49 nails I beleive, but for the nails I used they came in strips of 28 so I could only load one strip at a time. Great to have on the job site, especially at the end of the day when you packed up all of the compressors but noticed something that needs to be addressed before you leave, instead of taking everything back out you can just use this in a matter of seconds. I've been in situations where a cordless nailer would have been very handy, especially for the roofers who have to run the cord all the way up there from the ground. I used this for a few projects around the house so far and it worked great. I must admit there about 2 proud nails and they were due to user error. My very first nail was proud because I used 3-1/4" nails and did not change the mode to setting 2 , for longer nails. The other time is when I merely did not apply enough pressure to the workpiece and did not hold the nailer firmly against it. The rest of the nails sank in just fine and I did not have the depth adjustment set to the lowest setting(There is a dial you turn on the top). I did not experience any jams. I used this to reattach a piece of decking that fell off, and again to form a frame for other projects I had. One was for the base of a stand I was making it. Another was to add blocking to a workbench I made. All of the materials were 2x's that I was attaching to other 2x's The ramp up time is not that long, a second or so, to activate the nailer you have to press the nose against your workpiece. From there it will start to ramp up, then pull the trigger to fire a nail. Once the nose is depressed and starts ramping up, you have 5 seconds to fire a shot otherwise it will power down. Just release and depress the nose again to reset it. The loudest the nailer got was 86db according to my sound meter, you definitely want to have ear protection on when using this. To load the strips simply drop them in from the back. The rafter hook worked well, ueasy to adjust. The trigger lock adds security especially while transporting it. This comes with a marring tip and I left it on just so I would not lose it. I did need it for the decking though and it worked well. This takes full head nails. The grip rite nails worked fine. No issues

          would give 5 stars but that clip is horrible and wont hold two strips of nails
          Fantastic gun, alittle heavy but thats to be expected. The clip feels really flimsey and has a dumb angle on it that makes it feel like its going to fall off

            Ive owned this tool for about six months and i notice whenever I use nails other than Dewalt my gun jams and I have to break down the front of the gun to free the nail. I have tried Hitachi and other brands that Home Depot carry but I find if I use the Dewalt brand, I end up with less down time.

              doesn't sink nails
              went bought this this morning thinking it was going to make my life so much easier not having to pack my compressor and air hoses around anymore, but it doesn't sink the nails and if I'm going to spend $400 on a nailer I shouldn't have to go back and tap every nail in the last quarter of an inch
