            I returned this because I found a Metabo for $40 less and it comes with a5 year warranty. However; Makita tools are awesome and I’m sure this would have worked well for me aside from the price difference.

            Excellent. I had two 18 gauge nailers break in the same week. Grabbed this and I’m very impressed. I will not be going to back to the other brands.

            Started leaking air around the trigger after using less than 1 strip of brads. Returned the gun for a refund. May try another gun at a later date

            Replaced my 1995 Craftsman brad nailer when it began jamming every two brads. This new Makita brad nailer is light (2.9 lbs), powerful, and reliable. I like that the safety pin on the head has a non marring plastic cover to protect the workpiece, and the sides of the air chamber have rubber bumpers to protect the new floor if I drag the tool over to me. Add in the low price and that clinches the deal. Came with an air fitting and tool oil and a case to keep it clean in storage.

            very happy with purchase. Excellent performance.

            So far the performance has been underwhelming. The drive-force seems inadequate.

            The one we received won't sink a nail even at 120lb pressure into soft wood. Hopefully we can try replace it.
