Dependable nailer

Review Summary

I have used this nailer many times and it is quite dependable. Initally it jammed a couple of times but I beleive it was more operator error, then the product's problems. After adjustments are made, it operated flawlessly. It operates better with porter cable brand finish nails.

Still dependable after 15 years

Review Summary

I've been using this model nailer for probably in excess of 15 years and haven't had any issues at all with it. I use it mostly for nailing on door case molding and base board. It's worked very well for that over the years and I've never had any jams.
