Nails are loaded in the rear of the magazine. There is a channel in the back of the magazine that the nails fit into, then the red slide on the left side of the magazine goes behind the fasteners to to keep forward pressure on them as you fire. The video in the image section of the nailers main page on homedepot.com shows this as well.
Probably not. It is a piece of junk. mine stopped working after just a few uses
Mine jams about every 3rd nail. That probably happened to you too. If you unlock the top and unplug it from your air source, you can pull up the metal "hammer" piece and usually see a jammed nail. My advice is to return this gun and get a different one. I tried all different air pressures and nail sizes and keep having the same issue.

This is pneumatic, or air powered, no battery or chargers required, just a compressor.
No. Maybe that's why it is cheaper than others.
Clipped head. the magazine looks to fit only clipped nail head.
This nailer will function with no problem up to 120-125psi. Recommended psi for normal use is up to 110, but it can handle more.
So far I have used Hitachi 2" and DeWalt 1 3/4". Both work fine in the nailer, but you need to dial in the pressure/dept control for each separately. I think the main reason go this is that the Hitachi nails are smooth, but the DeWalt nails have serated edges - presumably to hold better, but this also means more force needed. As far as the gun goes, I think you are pretty safe with any brand. I also have some 1 1/4" Porter Cable (smooth) nails, but haven't tried them yet.
The HFN64 is the older model of Husky Nailer and the DPFN64 is the latest model. The DPFN64 includes upgraded internal parts and features including Select Fire Trigger, Quick Release Nose for easy jam clearing, 360 Degree Adjustable Exhaust, Tool Free Depth Adjust and No-mar tip . Thank you!
