Well designed finish nailer, good quality and features
This Makita 16ga finish nailer will be replacing my basic Porter Cable nailer. The Makita has some nice refinements that make it nicer to use. The lockout feature is very nice--many times I've been dry firing without realizing I was out of nails, so I will definitely be using that. The depth adjustment knob on the Makita is much nicer, with detents and markings on the gun that show you which direction to turn for deeper or shallower driving. The Makita also has a tooless latch to clear any jams--fortunately I think I've only had one jam in any of my pneumatic nailers, so I probably won't use it much, but it's nice to have. The one design detail I did not like is the loading of the nails. Nails have to be fed into the back of the holder, and the strips of nails get stuck during loading. I have to pull them past the follower before they will slide forward. (see video for demonstration) Not a huge deal, but it was surprising in an otherwise very refined nail gun. The Makita drove 1" and 2" nails without any issues. The gun seemed slightly quieter than my old Porter Cable. The driver pin for the Makita seems to be aligned well--when the nails were counter sunk, it typically did not hit the wood around the nail head. By contrast, my Porter Cable would usually produce a hole in the wood up to twice the size of the nail head. The Makita pneumatic guns all have a feature to vent air out of the back of the handle--apparently to blow dust off of work. While novel, I personally don't think I'll ever use that feature, as I don't typically have much dust when I'm doing assembly or nailing, and would typically use a dust collector or vacuum instead of a jet of air to clean it up. Very nice nailer and a nice upgrade from the basic Porter Cable that I have been using.

Great Finish Nailer!! Perfect for most small nailing needs!!
This is a very high quality great finish nailer. Starting with unpacking the item, the nail gun comes in a very nice hard plastic case that comes with a small bottle of oil along with safety glasses! The hard case is great for storing the nailer while preventing excessive dust from getting near the nailer. The nailer itself has a great balanced feel in your hand with a very comfortable grip. The nailer has a very solid and well constructed feel. There is a hook mounted on the nailer which is nice for hanging on a secure spot while working on a ladder or working on ceiling work. The nailer has a single sequential actuation mode along with a contact actuation mode for more repetitive nailing. The nailer can use 1" to 2.5" nails. I strongly recommend this product. This type product is great for more than just fiinish trim. The longer nails work great for making misc. wooden storage boxes and craft type work. There is a depth adjustment on the nailer which is very handy depending on the material and depth of set you are looking for. As mentioned earlier, I would definitely recommend!!
