WOOD magazine review

Makita AF503 Brad Nailer

Review Summary

This model has been discontinued by the manufacturer. High points: Little jamming, even when driving at low pressure into steel. Dry-fire preventor won’t allow the nailer to fire with an empty magazine, saving wear. Also, the best-in-test low/empty-magazine indicator shows exactly how many brads remain. The extra no-mar tip that comes with the nailer stores on the tool. Low points: Although this is a sequential-fire nailer, we found it easy to override the mechanism and bump-fire it.
No on-tool drive-depth adjustment.
