Questions & Answers


Does this nailer shoot clipped head or round head nails or both?

Asked by Jeff March 27, 2021


Does this nailer take round head nails also? And does it have to paper collated or can they be plastic collated??

Asked by murfdog January 16, 2021

Hello. Yes, the 30° Compact Framing Nailer can use round/offset head 30° nails that are paper tape collated.

Can you put a rafter hook on it

Asked by Ryan September 24, 2020

The Compact Framing Nailer has a Left/Right Rafter Hook to accommodate left-or right-handed operators.

Someone said max psi is 120 for this nailer.. Is that the case? My compressor is 150 psi. I need ...

Asked by Beth August 1, 2020

i used mine to rebuild my deck, i have a little arthritis in my hands, the lightweight design was a big plus. 90 psi is all the pressure that should be necessary to run this gun

Does any one have trouble with this gun shooting more than one nail at a time?

Asked by Bob July 17, 2019

I have not so far.

how would this gun be on' general' framing projects?

Asked by newbeeeee October 1, 2018

Great for straight shots. Light and easy to carry. Only takes one cartridge of nails at a time. For simple projects great gun

one answer said clipped head nails other said round .which is it?

Asked by newbeeeee October 1, 2018

It does have a full round but is offset for driver to engage head. (Kinda look like clipped heads) Although not specified I feel that some clipped head strips could work. It only holds one strip at a time but quickly changes nail length and type. Has fired full heads flawlessly for me.

is120psi enough to operate

Asked by newbeeee October 1, 2018

Yes I was useing it with 90psi and it did ok.

Can you use other brands of nails or just the paslode paper strips?

Asked by JAB February 8, 2018

Yes any 30 degree paper tape nails, clipped or offset.

Will this gun shoot 28* nails?

Asked by Barlow November 21, 2017

Probably, but where do you even get those?

Great design but underpowered for a pro
Love my cordless Paslode so I thought I would give this a try. The compact and lightweight deisgn is fantasitic for interior framing. The construction does appear high quality and durable. However, even with 3/8 hoses at 120 psi at the lowest depth setting this gun was unable to sucessfully toenail whitewood studs. I would not recommend for any serious project.

Very Compact Framing Nailer With Outstanding Performance
If you are a contractor that uses framing nailers all day, you know how important it is to have reliable and light weight tools. Paslode has recently introduced the new Compact Framing Nailer, Model F325R. At only 5.9 lbs the Paslode Compact Framing nailer is noticeable lighter than the full size model, which weighs 8.4 lbs. Actually the compact nailer feels similar to working with a drill. Further discussion is provided below. At only 12.9 inches wide, the Paslode Compact Framing Nailer easily fits between stud walls on 16 inch centers. It comes from the factory configured for sequential mode, and the trigger can easily be reconfigured for bump mode if needed. It used 30 degree paper collated nails (2-3 ¼ inches) and has a magazine capacity of 44 nails. The full size model has a capacity of about 84 nails. It also comes with a built-in rafter hook for convenience. The only tradeoff with the Paslode Compact Framing Nailer is the smaller magazine capacity. Other than that, it provides the same performance as the full size model. Highly recommended!!

Great nailer! Durable and dependable. A compact and light-weight metal beast that will withstand years of use and abuse on the job site.
As an avid DIYer, I own an assortment of pneumatic tools and use pneumatic framing nailers all the time. In fact, my “go-to” framing nailer is a Paslode F-350S framing nailer. The biggest difference between this nailer and the F-350S is its size. While both nailers are exceptional performers, the F325R with its shorter magazine is able to get into spaces that larger nailer, including the F0350S, simply cannot. While some may prefer the larger magazine, to reduce the frequency of having to stop and feed nails, my preference is for the smaller nailer. Before you can use the nailer for the first time, you will need to install a 1/2-in bushing adapter and x 1/4 –in (M) NPT air hose coupler plug and load the magazine with nails (from 2-inches to 3-1/4-inches). While the adapter and air plug necessitated a trip to Home Depot, a sampling of Paslode 3-inch 30-degree paper tape nails, which is recommended by the manufacturer for use in this nailer, and a pair of safety glasses, is included with the nailer. I placed a strip of the Paslode nails into the magazine, and I unloaded them into various types and thickness of scrap wood, mostly pine, cedar and maple, left over from earlier DIY projects, without any jams. As with any new tool, I had to fiddle with the toolless depth of drive adjustment to sink the nails to the proper depth. Once adjusted, I was able to continually drive nails without having to go back and finish with a hammer, which saves time. The F-350S holds 2 strips of nails in the magazine, while the F325S holds only 1 (up to 44 nails). The nailer is constructed of durable, lightweight magnesium, except for a few plastic and steel parts, and operates efficiently at 90-120 psi. Since I generally am not hard on my tools, I expect this nailer will provide years of reliable service if I do my part and take care to oil it. At 5.9 lbs., it’s at least 2 lbs. lighter than the F-350S and many other framing nailers, with near perfect balance and low recoil. The 30-degree angle is handy for toe-nailing and driving nails in tight spaces. The nailer features a soft, comfortable, rubber, non-slip grip and a built-in heavy-duty utility hook which could be used to suspend the tool from a belt, but is better suited for hanging on rafters. The aggressive tip allows you to drive nails at any angle without slipping. The tool's trigger comes set up in single operation mode for precision placement driving. To switch the trigger between single operation and optional bounce drive or “bump-fire” mode requires removal of the O-ring and pivot pin from the trigger assembly. One negative is that you can't easily switch the trigger back and forth between drive modes. Another thing to note about Paslode nailers is that they won’t fire without nails in the magazine. Anyone who has ever driven nails and then realized they were shooting blanks as the magazine was empty for the last dozen or so trigger pulls will appreciate this feature. Having been there and done that, I know I do. Overall, this is a great gun; very sturdy and light-weight, and I have absolutely no complaints. Paslode paper collated nails are costly, so make every shot count.

Truly compact & lightweight
Couldn't wait to use this puppy. Can get a lot more framing done with less fatigue. Box includes 2 strips of 3 1/4 inch nails and a pair of safety glasses but no air fitting. Make sure you pick up a 3/8 NPT fitting before you leave the store. Will easily fit between 16 inch centers at any angle and the air intake angles slightly to the right for good clearance. Still it will not do the impossible and work in every construction situation. A reversible rafter hanger is included that balances just fine on a tool belt also. I did not need hanger for my job so it is missing on photo. Because of it's light weight it has a real nice bounceback which helps to reduce fatigue even more in bump mode. Changing from sequential to bump is easy without tools but be very careful not to loose the really small "O" ring. The trigger easily identifies at a glance if in sequential or bump mode. The grip is very comfortable and with the amount of rubber on it it does not slip. I especially like that it will handle 2" up to 3 1/4" nails and either .113" or .131" diameter shanks. I have a 1/4 inch fitting and found that 95 PSI would not seat 3 1/4" nails flush even with depth setting at max. It needed a minimum of 105PSI. Hex head bolts are inch. WHOHOO. Thank you Paslode
