Probably the best thing about this Ryobi AirStrike finish nailer is that it's a couple of pounds lighter than other similar cordless nailers I've used in the past. Probably because it uses a built-in compressor instead of some other mechanism. I was a little confused that there was no off or safety switch. Instead the AirStrike Nailer turns itself off automatically. Underneath the trigger is an LED switch that gets pressed when you hold the tool in your hand. It not only turns on the LED work light but when released it will turn off the tool after a short time so it can't fire. This is nice because you don't have to remember to switch the safety on when you put it down or hook it on your belt with the belt clip. Supports a good range of nail lengths and has easy to set adjustments for depth as well as compressor pressure to accommodate different materials. I sometimes like to paint my trim before I install it but found the no-mar tip would slip off the glossy paint making it hard to place. Scuffing the tip up a little with some sandpaper helped. The rapid fire mode is a little slow but somewhat expected. Good weight, easy to adjust and it's not very loud. I like it.

  • Finally Got My Hands On One!

Since I'm in H.D. stores at least once a day, I have this mental list of "one of these days" items to get. Since I already have a reasonable collection of Ryobi 18volt items in my quiver of tools, the nailer collection was bound to be next on the list! I was impressed by the size, weight and balance of the unit. The power is enough to handle any finish nailing job I threw at it. The most important factors for me was the ability to use batteries I already own and a product built well enough to do the job it is intended to do; finish nailing. This product met those needs. No special nails required and no disposable cartridges needed to use this product; no cords, no air lines .... no worries. All this at a fraction the cost of other nailers. I won't go into the "item specifics" since they are posted & well detailed already. I CAN say this, however .... I can't wait to get the rest of the Ryobi nailers!

This worked right out of the box. It keeps up with the speed I desire for installing base boards and door jams. I have several battery types but use the large capacity 18v batteries with it. It has rubber bumpers that keep it from scratching floors when I lay it down. It is a bit heavy, but a good trade off for using no compressor and hose. I also have the 18g brad nailer. Equally impressed with it.

Pros Durable, Easy to Use Cons just a bit heavy

Not sure why there are some negative reviews here. I have the brad nailer, the finish nailer(16 gauge), as well as the finish nailer. Every one of then nailers does a great job. Yes, they are slower to react vs. my pneumatic nailers, but what do you expect for an 18 package? You cannot just rapid fire like you can the pneumatic ones. They sink the nails and do it well in my opinion. I would purchase them again many times over, I love them for what they are, cordless(albeit a little slower) nailers.

This is the perfect tool for anyone considering a cordless 16ga Finish Nailer....it is a nice weight that fits good in your hands and is very powerful..i did not have any major issues with it and it is very easy to clear jammed nails ...Even though i shot over 500 nails without a jam..

  • Works as well as the BIG boy's tools, costs a LOT less

Three years ago when airless nail guns first came out, I had a chance to see them at a woodworking tool show. I was very impressed by their convenience, but depressed by the prices. Then last year, i saw that Ryobi made a cordless pin-nailer. I already had other Ryobi 18-volt tools, so it was an easy choice to snatch one of those to try out. In the first day of using it, I fell in love. I started getting all "Norm Abram" around the shop.. pin nailing everything in sight. The beautiful thing was that this less-expensive Ryobi nailer worked just as well as those expensive Big-Boy Brands I saw at the trade show. In the year I've had it, it has only jammed once! Jams are easy to clear with the tool-free nose clamp. If I keep a full magazine and use a drop of oil on the nose at the start of each day, I get no jams. So, based on that good experience, I got this larger-capacity nailer. It works just as well as the other Ryobi pin nailer! So far, I have fixed two fences, built a trash-can screen, and assembled long-needed shelves in the garage attic. Trust me, you don't want to be hammering nails into studs with blown-insulation everywhere! hand-hammering disturbs insulation and creates clouds of dust. With the air nailer, by contrast, nails go in without a fight so you get done faster and inhale less dust. This nailer requires no hose, so I could climb up the narrow attic stairs with ease and nail uprights without breaking a sweat. Given the 16" OC spacing of attic joists, a hammer would have been miserable work. With this thing? it was FUN! For that one project alone, it was worth the cost. I highly recommend this and the little Ryobi pin nailer. They both work great and cost FAR less than the competitors.

Pros Durable, Easy to Use, Strong, fast & fun! Cons a bit heavy but i don't care

I bought this as a first time nail gun owner. I do not owner a compressor so that helped me with my decision to purchase because I didn't have any other use for a compressor at the time and cost became a factor. I initially loved the gun but as I have used it more and more I have found that it does not sink the nails very well and I am using the included 2 inch nails. I have the depth gauge set to as deep as possible and I have the air compressor on max. I have used this gun on a variety of scrap wood and every combination of 2x4 and plywood and everything in between with similar results, It just doesn't want to finish driving in the nail. When I first bought the gun, Most of the nails countersunk and I was still learning how to use the tool. But Now I have been trying to figure out this issue off and on for a few weeks now with no improvements. I don't even have a project right now, I just want the tool to work right so I have been testing it in every combination imaginable with no luck. I am a big fan of ryobi and I have many 18v One+ tools and I like them all very much. This tool however frustrates me to no end. The only thing I have not tried is a different brand or length of nails but I fail to see how that could provide much improvement. If that changes I will update my review.

I've used this on a few projects around the house without any issues. Works very good with proper depth and power adjustments. I'm also using the gun with the 4ah and 6ah batteries only. I have had zero issues with the gun not sinking the nail in all the way. I've tested the gun on Red Oak, Treated 2x6, Treated 6x6, select pine and plain cheap white wood. I've shot 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 nails with no issues. I really like this product. So much easier than using my compressor and air guns.

First cordless nailer I have ever bought. Was building some crates for accent furniture and was tired of using my air nailers. This nailer works like a champ!

Really hand finish/brad nailer for DIYers and even pros, the time it saves is worth the money.. No hose and air compresser needed! If you have a lot of trim to hang or some light work to do to, this saves you a lot of time with finishing nails, especially the thinner gauge that like to bend. I used this most recently while redoing the doors (used on trim, not doors) inside the house and it cut my drill/hammer and nail time down by 75% or so. I reused the old brittle trim on the doors and this gun/nails didn't fray or crack it. Even on angled trim, if I held the gun parellel to the wall, it countersunk the nail (see picture). The only time I had an issue with the nail not countersinking properly was when I was not holding the nail gun down hard enough at the end of the drive and if I press the top of it (the air vent) to my chest then it couldn't "breathe" right. The directions are not the best but it is easy to use after watching a quick video on the internet. You can adjust the drive depth and air pressure which is great. I keep the power on the highest level and the countersink at the deepest. Clearing jams (which I havent had) can be done by loosening a simple latch near where it nails. The nail gun is not too heavy and the battery will last a long time. You can use 16 nails from 3/4" to 2.5". Although battery powered, the nail gun still uses air. The only downside to this tool is you have to wait a second between each nail. The light on the nail gun is an added feature for dark spots. Tool belt hook is nice as well although you probably wont be hanging it unless you are going up a ladder. Battery lasts for several hundred nails and switching nail sizes is pretty easy.
