    Versatile 3-in-1 Nailer
    At first glance, I was a little put off by this nailer. I noticed right away that a small amount of rust had built up on the air inlet port and thought that was a little odd, considering this is new-in-box. I’ve used pneumatic nailers and staplers for a short while now and have had great success with a few different models. But out of the box, I had never seen any with rust on them, so it must have been an anomaly. Thinking that there was rust on the outside, I considered that it might not have been lubricated before it shipped. It did ship with small bottle of lube oil, so I used that to drop a few drops in the inlet per the instructions. The instructions did not indicate how much to dispense into the nailer, so I best guessed off of over nailers that I have used. It was at that point I found the instructions were a little odd. I found a few places where things didn’t quite add up, the English was a little off or a few seconds of spell checking could have helped. My favorite was the captioning of the depth adjustment wheel. It seems that the manual may have gone through a few changes before it went to print and they missed the fact that their figure letters were mismatched! It caused a bit of confusion, but I was able to figure it out. I used this nailer with some 2” 16 gauge nails. 16 gauge goes in one side, 18 gauge on the other. The loading tray is just shy of 2” long, so longer nails will hang of the tray which seems a little funny to me. However, I had no misfires or jams while sending a 100 nails through it. The load action is smooth and easy which is nice. A small window in the load tray shows the nails in the tray, and is very close to the top so you know when you’re very low. Other nailers I have used have had the window about halfway down the tray, which just don’t make a whole lot of sense. The nailer has a hard rubber tip, so you don’t have to worry about dinging or stratching the wood you’re working on. Overall, a good nailer. I like that it can use multiple sizes of nails, so I don't have to worry about having multiple nailers. The rust makes me worry a little about the interior components. Additionally, I feel like it could be a little bit lighter.

    Works great on all three modes, staples, finish nails, and brads, which all have their own slot. Just make sure you remove the ones you are not using, or when you shoot, you may get the wrong fastener.

      I've never seen a multi size nail gun before. I was a little skeptical of a 3-in-1 from a company I had never heard of for less than $100 no less. Glad I didn't listen to myself. This thing is excellent for diy-er's. Load 16ga on 1 side or 18ga on the other or 18ga staples in the center. The exhaust port is adjustable which is a plus. It can be set to single or multiple shot, which is also a big plus. You can also set your drive depth, another plus! Seems well built so far. I've put a few 100 of each fastener through it so far with no issues. Saved me a few $100 as well from not having to purchase or even decide between a 16 or 18 gauge. I definitely recommend this nail gun.
