Works fine for what I need. I just do little hobbies so this tool handles what I need just great. The carrying case is great also to use to protect it while in storage and to take around with you.

Used this to put up trim in my family room. Gotta say leave a nice small countersink, I tried a combo stapler Brad nailer and had to take it back… left gashes in the wood. This dewalt worked perfect! No need for oil either!

Durable, Reliable, Easy to Use
I purchased this particular brad nailer as a gift for my oldest son, however I have owned one for more than 10 years. It is one of the most useful tools in my armamentarium. It is light weight, easy to use, and reliable. I have never experienced a jam with this nailer. I recommend purchasing an option that includes the case. Also, I almost always use between 60 PSI (softer woods) and 80PSI (for harder woods), and try to avoid using anything higher than 80PSI.

Excellent! Very precise nailing. Nailer a little bit on the large size. Would prefer it to be smaller.

      The nailer was easy to assemble and easy to use. It made the job so much faster, now that I have used it. I will use it for every project that I do now. It was worth the money

        I've only used the nailer a couple of times and it performed perfectly as I expected. Would expect nothing less from a DeWalt tool.

                            Overall I’m happy with the nailer, although it did leave some marks on the finish, and a swivel air coupler would be nice.

                            Awesome little 18ga nail gun for trim. Used it to affix base boards, window/ door trim and this unit performed flawlessly using 1 1/4" nails, 0 jams/ misfires. I appreciated the fact that it came supplied with the air coupling and a hard case, which is seldom provided with products nowadays.
