How should i shoot so the nails dont stick out??

Every nail i shoot, the heads stick out. Is there a certain way to shoot this gun? Ive tried so many different ways already and cant get a good shot. I love m18 but this is frustrating.
Asked by: nomar
Ihad that problem at first. But after turning the depth setting knob and holding it straight at the point of impact it started getting easier. Plus I used a junk peice of trim at first to help me adjust the depth.

M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 16-Gauge Angled Finish Nailer Kit W/ (1) 2.0Ah Battery, Charger & Bag is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 169.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from The freedom of cordless Very happy to see Milwaukee come out with their new range of M18 cordless nailers, and to have added this angled finish nailer to my Milwaukee cordless arsenal. This is a high-quality tool, as you'd expect from Milwaukee. After using it for the last several weeks, I found it work just as claimed, and to be so very convenient. The unit is a little heavier with the battery attached than a pneumatic nailer, but for me that's greatly outweighed by the freedom provided. One of the features is that you change from sequential trip to contact with just a push of a button, no triggers to change out. The nailer is ready to fire another nail in less than 1/10 of a second, so even when bump firing as fast as I could go along it has no trouble keeping up. Sunk nails to 2-1/2" in everything I tried. I shot probably a couple hundred nails, and the included 2.0ah battery only dropped one bar, so runtime on this looks to be excellent. Overall, I am very happy with this new nailer - highly recommended!

Good: For the 16g units, this is the narrowest cordless unit I could find. It makes the other units look like blimps. For battery powered, weight and balance are OK. Bad: Expensive. Can't consistently sink a 1.5" nail into 2-2x4s. In the 10 nails I tried, 1 in 3 were sticking out and bent over. Couldn't consistently perform with my full weight on the unit. Louder than I hoped. Heavier than alternatives. Non-intuitive / non-marked depth control. Big head. I wanted the unit to be a general interior nailer. I only get a short time to work while my kids nap, so I didn't want tare down/setup of a compressor. I tried a Paslode unit, which performed awesome, but was as loud as a pistol being fired. Resold it. Bought this unit because I want to buy other MIlwaukee M18 tools, and found it to be 90% as loud, inconsistent, etc. eMailed Milwaukee and they didn't have any useful tips (nail selection, etc)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, so far I have not used the nail gun in depth as of yet. As of now I'm just getting used to how it works, nail depth, kickback, etc. As all nail guns are different I have used the Paslode 16g using battery and gas cartridge and a cheaper Black and Decker 18g. Both need new batteries and the Paslode is an excellebt gun, but the gas cartridges never seem to last long and it also needs a new battery. I got this gun on special of $269 so since I have so many other Milwaukee 18v batteries I thought I'd give it a try. I guess I'm used to the Black and Decker which shoots a much smaller nail and leaves a much smaller hole to fill. I got this gun because I have several other Milwaukee 18v products and batteries and they are the best tools I've ever used. This does leave a large hole to fill but using 2 1/4" nails it drove them with no problem into 3/4" hardwood flooring. Minimal if any kickback and the light is a nice feature. So far this a good nail gun and I'll update my review if I have any further issues.

If you have a lot of finishing nailing to do this is the tool.tom

The main body and trigger is smaller like a drill, much smaller and less bulk then a paslode and especially the dewalt 20v nailer. I use paslode angled finish nails in mine. The tool is great, powerful, delivering, and to the point.
