Awesome
Wow. Just … wow! The Model #2841-21CT nail gun is fast, powerful, well-made, quiet and CONVENIENT – worth every penny of the relatively high price. It weighs 7.4 lbs (battery, no nails) but balances nicely. By comparison, my magnesium 16g straight nailer weighs less than half that, but the lack of a dragging pneumatic hose makes the Milwaukee unit easier to maneuver and orient. The unit drives 2” nails into solid oak, sinking below the surface even on burst mode. There is a slight issue loading as the nail strip does not slide easily going in, but does better sliding out. That may be unique to my unit and may disappear after more use. It comes with a belt/rafter hook which can be located on either side, and balances perfectly on the flat bottom of the battery pack. The tool-free jam clearing is convenient, though so far I've had no jams. The LED provides decent illumination of the surface area but the shadow blocks the exact target point; however the drive point is so thin it's pretty hard to drive the nail in the wrong place.

Excellent Quality - Compact Size
This Milwaukee M18 FUEL 18-Volt Lithium-Ion Brushless Cordless Gen II 15-Gauge Angled Finish Nailer Kit with 2.0Ah Battery and Charger represents an improved version of the 15 ga. finish nailer. It is a self-contained, battery-powered tool that is a very good choice for cabinets, finish work and trim functions. I like to use a 15 ga. finish nailer for thicker wood pieces where 18 ga. brads don’t seem strong enough. The full round heads hold better. This is a complete kit stock #2839-21CT and includes the nailer, a 2.0 AMP M18 battery, a battery charger and a nice embroidered emblem storage bag. All you need to get started is some 15 ga. 34 degree angled finish nails. I used Metabo/Hitachi 1 ½ inch nails in my testing and to reattach my trim on a new door. They worked great without any jams and each nail seated just below flush with small round holes. This tool offers two different easily selectable firing modes. One is sequential where only one nail is fired with a trigger pull and then two is where you hold the trigger down and the nailer fires a nail each time it contacts the surface to be nailed. There was no lag time between nails in my testing. I have two other pneumatic 15 ga. finish nailers and they work great but carrying around a compressor and the air hose is cumbersome and time consuming. It only takes a minute to get this Milwaukee finish nailer up and running. This is the FUEL version that utilizes a brushless motor and advanced electronics to deliver more power and make batteries last longer. This kit has a 2.0 amp M18 battery which supplied plenty of power for my needs and made the tool lighter. This nailer is heavier (7.5 lbs. with battery) than the pneumatic nailers but is more handy. I found that it was a little uncomfortable to use when working at shoulder level or overhead but waist level and lower was no problem. You can use larger M18 batteries but it adds weight. I like the 2.0 amp battery. This kit also includes the excellent M12/M18 rapid charger. It works great and charges very quickly. The manual covers depth adjustment, clearing jams and resetting the drive shaft if needed after clearing a jam. It’s all simple and I haven’t had a jam or any other problem. Just be sure to buy high-quality 15 ga. nails with 34 degree angle. This nailer has a 5 year warranty and the battery is 2 year warranty. Overall, this is an excellent tool. I have purchased several other Milwaukee M18 FUEL tools and every one has been great. I'm going to get the M18 FUEL 18 ga. brad nailer next!

Good nailer
This Milwaukee nailer comes with a battery and charger that charges the battery rather quickly for a quick turnaround. The nailer uses 15 gauge nails that are at every hardware store. You can adjust the depth of the nails and it is very easy to clear jabbed nail in the nail gun. Loading nails is very easy and quick and it comes with a nice carrying bag

Fantastic tool
I just love this nail gun. I have the first generation 15 gauge and I thought it was great. They have made several improvements on it. They redid the nose so it's smaller and more accurate to place the nail right where you want it. They have made it so it stands up on the battery. the belt hook has been moved to a better spot. The depth adjustment has stops on it. It has a different sound to it also. Highly recommend it

Another great tool!
Firstly, let me say that Milwaukee has a well earned reputation for making rugged,dependable and well designed tools. Currently I have a few of their products and have had no issues with any of them. I have bought and used air powered nail guns. This is the first battery powered nail gun for me. I have some projects coming up including replacing shoe and crown mouldings so an angled nail gun was needed. I have been testing this unit out to get a feel for it. I am really happy with the feel and the features. Not only is there a simple to use depth adjustment but there is a mode selection that allows single trigger activated firing or you can hold the trigger and it will allow for the head contact to fire once compressed. This feature makes it easy to move along a workpiece quickly. I know that the m18 red lithium battery has a very good life as well.

Fast, no hose, no cartridges, no compressor
No cartridges, no hoses, no compressor. Just grab a box of nails and go. This uses 16 guage, 20° nails and will fire faster than you'll need. It holds 110 nails, 1-1/4 - 2-1/2". Depth adjustment is fine tuned without using any tools. You can dial it in using the knob on the front, to get exactly what you want. Firing is single sequential or contact actuation. This is perfect for moulding work. The shape and design allows you to access tighter spaces more easily. There are thee bumpers supplied, to protect your project if needed. I've only been able to use one brand of nails due to the supply chain issue, but I had no misfires or failures with those. It has an LED on it and also a belt hook that can be mounted either side. When there are only 4-5 nails, it stops firing, to let you know that it's time to reload. I like the 2ah battery that was supplied with this kit. It's light, but also helps balance out the tool. This uses any of the popular M18 batteries, but it's very efficient and the supplied 2ah perfect for this tool. It is so nice not to need a hose, drop cord, compressor or generator. It's very fast and smooth. This kit gives you everything you need to get started, except for nails. It's a very impressive tool and it sure does make things easier.

Great package!
A great finishing nailer set. This Milwaukee M-18 nailer comes with the gun, a 2.0Ah battery, charger, and a tote bag! What a deal for this set. Being a neighborhood DIY, you can help out a lot of people with finishing work, from kitchens to bedrooms. This gun loads with enough nails to possibly finish an entire job with one loading. And below the trigger it has your selector mode, from Power On/Off, Battery Check, and Single or Multiple shooting. And on the magazine, it clearly indicates the size range of nails you can use on your projects, For large projects, you should consider the provided 2.0Ah battery as a starter. Depending on my projects, I use between 4.0Ah and 6.0 Ah batteries. And having been a Milwaukee user for over a decade, I have plenty of spare batteries and chargers. Great investment.

Great Nail Gun!
This nail gun works and is just fantastic. I got this nail gun to replace my very old and failing air compressor and nail gun. It is amazing how this nail gun works so well just on battery alone and without the tanks like the old Paslode use to have. This nail gun saves time because all you have to do is pop in a battery and the nail clip and you are off. No more compressor tanks and hoses to get in the way.

Excellent Complete Set
A cordless, Milwaukee nailer with everything included! How good can it get. The kit comes with the nailer gun, a 2.0Ah battery, charger, and tote bag. Everything you need to grab and go. Also makes it convenient to keep everything in one place. After charging the battery, all you need to do is load the slanted 15-gauge nails and tackle your next job. And the nail strips load as easy as you could ever ask for. Great for any professional or DIY. And next to the trigger, you have the buttons for Power On/Off, Battery Check, and Single or Multiple shooting. The 2.0Ah battery is sufficient to get you going, but I personally consider it a ‘starter’ battery for the tool. I stay busy with my nailers and commonly use a 4.0Ah or 6.0Ah battery for an average job. And of course, there’s plenty of room in the carry bag to load batteries, slanted nails, and any other tools you may need for your job, or helping a neighbor. Everything in one purchase
