Questions & Answers

Can my son use this as a weapon?

I am worried that if I buy this tool, that my son may be able to use it as a weapon against me. Are there safety features in place that can prevent this from happening?
Asked by: MasterDebater
I'd be more worried if he had like a cordless sawzall or something. With this he could maybe try and launch some debris at you from a very carefully angled shot at the ground.

Where do I find parts for this tool?

I'm having trouble finding a piston assembly for this cobra plus tool. Parts warehouses say to ask you where to locate parts, as the ramset cobra is different than the cobra plus.
Asked by: Foghorn
I called the number in the first answer. They asked for my serial number, in about a minute they had my info and are sending me one at no charge. When I called Ramset from the number posted on their website it directed me to an answer machine and I had to leave my name and number, as of now no call back...

do you have stainless steel nail

do you have stainless steel nail
Asked by: boss1
Hi boss1, we do not currently offer a stainless steel drive pin. The most common applications for this tool are indoor applications in non-corrosive environments, so the use of stainless steel is not necessary. We do offer Ramguard Drive Pins which are approved for use in treated lumber. If you have any further questions, please contact customer service at 877-489-2726. Thank you.

Cobra+ 0.27 Caliber Semi Automatic Powder Actuated Tool is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 23.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from First night, seems to work well, Purple loads??? Just tried it out, seems to work well. Will not drive 2 1/2 nail through treated 2x4, leaves about 3/8 inch up. My concrete is really hard, I think 4000 psi. I can't even drive nail in with hammer. I'm using yellow loads. I bought purple, but didn't do my homework and they don't work with gun. There is a "wedge" that keeps them from going in. I noticed someone else saying "moving up to the purple will help." Has anyone used the purple, seems like you'd have to "modify" them by filing wedge off. Not that I'd do that, just curious. Overall I'm impressed with the gun, wasn't near as loud as I thought, build quality seems excellent. Any comments on the purple loads? I will update after using it for big project in next couple weeks, but was disappointed it didn't drive the nails the whole way. Not guns fault, my fault for not knowing it wouldn't take the purple loads. The feel of the gun is nice, not much kickback. This will be a real time saver.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid Product I recently purchased the Ramset Cobra+ for use in on-going projects. The Cobra+ is heavy duty and reliable, and also very easy to use. My only complaint so far is that the "red" loads for it (supposed to be able to drive a 2.5" nail into hardened concrete) are leaving about .25" of the nail above ground when driving into asphalt. I believe that upping to the "purple" loads will solve this problem. Overall, it seems to work as advertised.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from HUGE time saver. This is the one of the, if not the, most time saving tools I own. When anchoring 2 by 4s to concrete to frame out a wall, I had been drilling a hole through the 2 by 4, then in to the concrete, and then using a concrete anchor. To install each anchor took about 3 minutes - drill the lumber, drill the concrete, insert the anchor, and finally tighten down the anchor. With this tool it takes me literally a second! I used a 3 inch anchor and it effortlessly went through the 2 by 4, through the 1/16th inch metal bottom plate, and in to the concrete. Locking everything in place. Operation could not be simpler. Load a strip of 10 'rounds' in to the base, add an anchor to the tip, press on to the surface to be anchored and pull the trigger, that is it!. After each anchor is fired, you cycle the cylinder (kind of like how you would a pump action shotgun) and the next round is chambered, just add another anchor to the tip and repeat. This is not one of those clumsy tools that require you strike the tip with a hammer, this just needs a simple pull of a trigger. I can't tell you how much I enjoy using this tool over the 'old fashioned' way. It is very fast, very easy to use, and works perfectly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fire In The Hole !!! I received my Ramset Cobra recently. It came well packed in a heavy cardboard box, and the gun comes with a nice plastic storage case. Enclosed in the case was the gun, safety goggles,spall guard, wire cleaning brushes,and some replacement parts (barrel retention clip and piston). I had my last Ramset for 7-8 years, and my nephew is thrilled I got a new one because I told him he could have the old one which still works just as good as the day I got it. This is a must have tool for a basement remodel. I used it for attaching the sill plate. Snapped a chalk line, laid down a bead of construction adhesive then laid down 5 PT 2 x 4's for a sill plate. With the semi auto feature you can shoot them in fast and know they're secure. 40-50 shots in 5 minutes and 95% of them drove all the way in on the first shot. For the few that didnt I just used another load on them to drive them all the way in. I have also used this to attach 2 x 4's directly to steel I-beams. This is a great solid tool at a reasonable price for this kit that you will have for a long time. There's even room in the tool box to keep an assortment of pins and loads as well as the brushes and safety goggles

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not up to the job it was designed for This Ramset (the Cobra) was not up to the job and had to be returned. Previously used 22 cal unit with yellow (#4) loads but was not getting sufficient penetration through 2 x 6 yellow pine. Purchased the larger, more powerful Cobra unit (27 cal) and red (#5) high powered loads. Still not sufficient penetration through 2 x 5 with 2 1/2 fasteners to get the job done. Returned tool and used the "old fashioned" method with concrete drill (tungsten carbide + hammer drill) and steel fasteners. I don't think the time saving with the Cobra offsets the problems with insufficient penetration and holding power.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to use,relatively good value Does not penetrate treated wood even at highest charge and power level - a few hammer blows are needed. But it is useful and beats pounding away endlessly with a hammer and drill.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't bother with Ramset You can buy the Hilti equivalent of this tool for $199. It's called the DX 2 and was released earlier this year. Far superior to the Ramset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 27 Cal Ramset tool I recently used one of these on a job and fired around 800 rounds in just a few days. The tool worked great, I am used to using my HILTI but forgot to take it on the trip where we building a church. Another fellow had this RAMSET 27 caliber and it worked flawlessly.
