This nail gun is amazing for its ease of use. Straight out of the box it is ready to go, set the psi to 70-75, load the nails and you are all set. I ran approx 2400 nails through mine on day one without a single hiccup.

Amateur user. Light weight, easy to use. Air line swivel is very nice. Air adjustment was easy to figure out. Overall, I was very impressed how it handled and made the job quick and easy. I definitely will recommend to others. Thank you for such a great piece of equipment for a fair price. It's a do it yourself delight. My son's desk had completely broken in pieces. I was able to reconnect it and add an extra board on the back for added support. As you can see, he's making good use of it as a computer desk once again.

Drives a clean finish nail leaving little or no mar on the trim. Has nail stop when it runs low to prevent empty-fires that would damage the trim.
