worst nailer ever
So I had a porter cable battery Nailer that after limited use, quit working. So, I thought, get a good one and you won't have to worry about it. I read the reviews on here and they are a lot different than general google searches about this product. Right out of the box, first nail, jam. Cleared the jam and it jammed again and again and again. There is nothing in the 1-page manual about this. I started searching the web and this is a very common problem for people. One trick was to place the nails in the gun higher than they needed to be. Wow, that really worked, for about 5 nails then the jamming started again. I messed with this gun for 3 hours and all it would do was jam. I ruined a lot of quarter round. I just took it back to the store. One review said he took it back and got a new one and had the same issue. I bought a Ryobi, finished 3 hrs of trim work, not 1 jam.

    Previous rating changed by Home Depot?
    This review is posted in response to a previous review I left that was critical of the fact that Milwaukee nail guns are shipped in their original packaging showing exactly what it is and left on front porches and them taking away delivery to store for pickup. The previous review was a 2 star review but it was changed by HD to a 5 star review when posted. So why? Why change reviews? Why ship in obvious original packaging? Why cease the only safe delivery option some people have?

      No delivery to store for pick up?
      For some reason Home Depot has decided that delivery to store for pick up won't be done anymore. Problem here is that Home Depot ships Milwaukee tools in their original box so you have a big red Milwaukee box sitting on your porch all day like a big sign saying "steal me!!!". Even the cops said it was the stupidest thing they have seen. We won't be ordering anything online from Home Depot anymore beacuse they won't facilitate a safe delivery method. Great job on helping with secure deliveries.

          Can’t sink nails longer than 1 1/4”
          I bought this thinking it would work great for some small maintenance and repairs, unfortunately when testing it out with 1 1/2” nails it could only sink them about half way. I was very excited about this tool but am pretty disappointed with its performance.

            Big and Heavy
            Nailer seems to work okay. Definitely nice not having to start a compressor and drag an air line everywhere. It is rather large and very heavy for an 18 ga. nailer. Not sure if I am going to keep it.

              Best Brad Nailer
              The Milwaukee M18 FUEL Brushless Cordless Gen II 18 gauge brad nailer is the best brad nailer I've ever owned or used! While it is a little heavier than my Bostitch pneumatic gun, it is very well balanced. It is quieter, both the nailer itself, and of course no noisy compressor running every few minutes is terrific! Battery life is excellent, and battery changes are super easy. It does set nails more consistently than any pneumatic nailer I've ever used. The depth adjustment is easy to access and very precise. This nailer uses 18 gauge brad nails from 5/8 to 2-1/8. I typically use a High Output 3.0 battery, and I've never exhausted a battery during a single day of use. Should this tool ever jam, although I have never experienced one with it myself, Milwaukee makes it super easy to clear jams, and reset the striker if necessary. This is my 3rd Milwaukee cordless nailer, and I'm slowly replacing all of my pneumatic nailers with Milwaukee cordless nailers. If you invest in the Milwaukee brand of cordless nailers, you won't regret it. My only regret is that I didn't realize how awesome these nail guns are!

                Great starter kit and the 8.oAh battery is a behemoth of a battery. It will still be running a tool when you are crawling into bed
