Batteries!
It does the job, is slightly heavy. Rubber tip won't stay on unless you use some silicone. Also, when there's about an inch left of the nail clip, you have to add another clip or it may misfire or jam. The batteries just won't stay charged for very long and I have 3 of them that I need to constantly swap out. The finish nailer I have is the angled one, which I don't see on this website, but it's the Ridgid batteries I have an issue with. I also own a Milwaukee battery operated drill, impact and miter saw which have no battery draining issues. I know what I'll buy next time.

Great product!
I just bought this item today to finish up some trim work and am very impressed. It nailed the 1 inch nails like it was nothing. I am not sure what improvements have been made on this but it kicks butt in 2020! One thing to understand is that there is a switch on the bottom of the tool that can be set to 3/4 and 2.5 inch. I use air nailers and can say that this is just as powerful as the air nailers. If you want to be sure you have plenty of power, use a 5 amp hr battery, not the puny 2 amp hr batteries.

Terrific tool, very strong, durable and you can install 1400 linear feet of trim with one battery fully charged, (no need to haul around a compressor and a hose) it definitely is a great tool indeed!

The nail gun loaded easily and works very well. I was tired of trying to nail ship lap on a ceiling upside down. This made my job much easier and thrilled my fiance with it being completed more quickly and cleaner! I have much more ship lap to put up and after a charge on the battery I don't have to listento a compressor like the other guns would have required. I'm thrilled. The safety feature prevents misfires and drives in just enough to cover with caulk.

Seeds Program Review
(What's this)
As part of our review, we decided to perform an accuracy experiment. We set up a 1”x2” with pencil marks on the wood where we wanted to drive the nail. Never having had a power nailer, we wanted to learn how easy it was to drive the nail exactly where we intended it to go. The 1”x”2 is to be nailed to the edge of a ¾”x 4” board. We found that there are some raised plastic markers on the nailer guide assembly that helps this process. We learned that it is easier to position the nailer side to side versus positioning it from front to back. While the LED light helps, it is still hard to see where the nail will go, because that area is dark. However, with some practice, we could consistently drive a nailer very close to the place we intended it to go. As it turns out the more difficult issue is to avoid having the nail come out the side of the board when driving the nail into a ¾” edge. A small angling of the tool left or right causes the nail to drive at an angle so that it comes out the side of the board. Again, with practice, the number of times this mistake is made can be reduced. It was hard for us to be 100% when nailing into the edge of thin boards. Another consideration in completing good nail drives is how to get the nail to go into the wood so that it is properly countersunk. There is a depth adjustment to help with this, but it also depends on how much pressure you put on the nailer at the time of actuation. The owner’s manual says “Allow the tool to recoil away from the work surface as the fastener is driven”. While trying this, we could not really understand how to be accurate this way. We were more successful pressing down firmly on the tool as the tool fires the nail. After conducting the experiment, we decided that this is a very accurate and usable tool. With a little practice, nails can be driven quickly and accurately. It is most valuable when there are a lot of nails to be driven. It is really going to come in handy as we continue to finish off our basement. This tool also comes with a very nice sturdy storage bag. I gave value a 4 because you have to buy the charger and battery extra. However, once you have them, I guess they are interchangeable with other Ridgid tools.

I love this tool - great for finish work - no more nail setting, no hoses or cartridges needed. I drove many 1-1/2 inch nails and they all set nicely with no jams. This tool is a great time saver. It has a light so you can see where you are driving in tight dark spots. It doesn't fire unless you push the tip against a surface for safety. It loads easily and the front has a release to remove extra nails if needed. I wish I had one of these a long time ago!
