Has Milwaukee done anything to improve this gun? I see nothing but bad reviews

Has Milwaukee done anything to improve this gun? I see nothing but bad reviews
Asked by: savior
Have not had a single issue with it, works great! A clean sink every time. You don't have to jam it forward for it to fire. Obviously if you do that it will damage the wood. I use it with a 3.0 battery.

what type of nails would i have to purchase for this gun. Are they universal or only specifically for this gun.

Asked by: kevin
18 ga. brad nails. Milwaukee recommends "higher quality" nails such as "Hitachi, Senco, Bosco", from an e-mail I received from them after having misfire issues.

M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless 18-Gauge Brad Nailer Kit W/ (1) 2.0Ah Battery, Charger and Bag is rated 3.1 out of 5 by 294.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from This tool is my worst nightmare. Very disappointed I have 15K+ worth of Milwaukee tools, In fact i only buy Milwaukee tools !!! I was very excited to buy the 18Ga nailer but unfortunately it turned out the worse tool ever, it basically does not do the job period. My unit does not drive the nails flush and i have to keep hammering them manually every time. What a shame. I just wasted my money on some junk nailer. I can't believe Milwaukee rushed this tool to the market.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shame on Milwaukee! I purchased this brad nailer earlier today, June 9, 2018, at Home Depot, expecting the quality that Milwaukee brags about. All I had to install was 10 ft. of pine shoe molding, which should be no problem for this brad nailer. The first three nails, 1 1/4” brads, didn’t sink completely, I had to use a nail set to finish driving them, then it jammed. I cleared the jam and proceeded to shoot the remaining shoe molding. One nail I had to pull out with pliers because it only sank about a 1/2”. I made adjustments to sink the nails deeper and still had to use the nail set to finish sinking the nails. Before I finished the 10 ft length of shoe molding the gun stopped shooting nails altogether and started buzzing when I pulled the trigger and the LED lights that indicate that the nail gun is on started flashing like the lights on top of a police car. I will be returning this “nail gun” to Home Depot and getting a refund. Please, please, please, read the negative reviews and don’t waste your time and money on this product.

I've been a carpenter for almost 30 years now and my buddies call me Mr Milwaukee because most of my tools are . I do mostly kitchen and bathroom remodels and I was really excited about buying this new 18 gauge nailer my previous nailer was a senco that I've had 4 years without any problems it just wore out after almost daily use so I thought wow this will work with all my m18 batteries . I found it very awkward unless you were dead straight with the gun it would not sink the nail all the way in i found myself using my nail set for more information than I should've and if you set the depth to its max then it left a big indent in the wood which as you know takes more filler and time so the long and short of it was that I returned it after about 3days of frustration and hope they work out the bugs I've purchased a rigid Hyper drive and am happy with it so far.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from great concept, but what a miss Bought this for work on the construction site and am not impressed at all. Lots of great things about it but when you need to use a nail punch for over 50% of nails its just not worth it. It also broke a couple months after purchase and had to be sent away for a new one, first one would leave 2" nails over 1" out of the wood still. hoped the new one would perform better but it did not. ended up switching to the Ryobi one which was over half the price less and way better of a nail gun. Stay far away from this one, Its a shame since i love Milwaukee and buy lots of their products, this one is just unusable.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from not recommend,,, i don't understand way they try to sell this product. most of time nail doesn't set all the way even if nail set it was very shallow so doesn't even have a space for spackling or wood filler meaning useless. i think nailer driver blade is too short other than that the build quality is good. don't be fooled by professional reviewers. don't get me wrong i love milwaukee tools . i purchase the milwaukee 15 gauge nail gun month ago i am extremely happy about this gun but not 18 gauge. the reason i purchase 18 gauge because of the 15 gauge gun experience that i had but after one day i returned today. i don't know who 's doing quality check i think that person needs to get fire. milwaukee tools are the few top name-brand company i'm pretty sure they could do better than this, fix it and then let us know i'll purchase again. if you don't believe me you could check out my review for 15 gauge review. don't be fooled by professional reviewer total waste your time.

I decided that it was time to purchase a new nail gun that was battery operated, so naturally I chose Milwaukee. I read the mixed reviews and decided to ignore them because Milwaukee always made good tools.......until now. Do not purchase. This nail gun misfired more than it actually drove any nails. Half the nails it did drive were not countersunk. This tool was so bad that I actually had to stop working on a job to purchase a different nail gun in order to finish. ABSOLUTELY the worst tool I have ever purchased!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worst Milwaukee Tool By Far I should have read the reviews before making my purchase. I own countless other M18 and M12 tools, and wouldn't buy from any other manufacturer. The M18 Fuel 15 gauge finish nailer is amazing! I don't know how Milwaukee messed up so badly with the 18 gauge brad nailer. Regardless, don't buy the brad nailer. It's completely horrible. Seriously, how hard is it to consistently sink 18 gauge brad nails?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Last all day Am happy with nailer, great not to drag a hose around. I think the negative reviews are all from same person who may not be familiar with or took time to learn how to use the nailer. Its easy to overcompensate and push hard on the nailer and leave a dent in the wood. Other than that I have yet to find a type of wood that the nailer wouldn’t drive a nail into.
