New favorite nailer.
Perfect for where you need a pin to join wood pieces without a big hole from traditional nailer. Smooth operation and was able to accurately place pin exactly where it needed to be.

I should’ve bought one of these years ago. So nice and smooth with invisible pins that make trim work so easy. I paired it with a new Eagle 2000 compressor that is so quiet you never even know it’s on.

Totally worth it!!!!
I've been eyeing this for a long time and finally snagged one. I couldn't be happier with it. It's so much stronger than what I even hoped for.

I have read where the double trigger was a problem (NO IT'S NOT). So many times I read about poor quality in products just to find out that either the people don't know how to use them or put it to use in something in which it was not intended. I caught this little jewel on sale and it's the best pin nailer I have ever owned, right out of the box! Worth every penny and more.

Ready to go right out of the box. Worked nicely in 3/8 white oak. To get beneath the surface, the head needs to be nearly perpendicular and air pressure at about 95 psi. Once I got those details, works great.
