I would love to like this nailer, but I find it difficult. It is well balanced and very comfortable to use. It is sensitive as to what brands of nails it works with. If you don't feed it the nails it like, expect a lot of jams. Hitachi and Bostitch (wire collation seems to work better) are the only nails that I found to work consistently.

This nailer does not like lower air pressures with long nails, especially ring shanks, I have to reset my compressor to cycle when it gets down to 100 psi. and deal with the more frequent cycling.

This nailer only comes set up for bump firing. I would prefer a lever to switch between modes.

Unless you REALLY have to shoot the shortest nails I would recommend getting the Hitachi

Nice, but a little under powered
