    Really. I’m not sure how I missed this back in June.
    Your experiences pretty much are the same as mine with the pinner. The safety just takes a bit to get the hang of, otherwise I think they pretty much nailed it with this tool.

    Glad it was brought back up. Nice review, and the fact that your still backing it makes it better.

    Thanks for the review. I have never used one of these or even seen one so it was nice to learn something new.

    Thanks for the review. I want this nailer, but what kind of brand do you guys use on the pin nails?

    I’ve used everything from Grex to store brand pins with zero problems. Nothing jambs the gun.

    **Update**

    Ive been using this nailer for the past 10 months or so and for the most part it has been great. Now I say the most part because when it’s working it’s amazing. However I keep all my tools in my truck bed all the time and with the extreme cold the nailer won’t shoot. If I bring it into the house for a bit before I need to shoot it the gun is fine.

    When I know I’m going to use it I bring the nailer into my truck for the ride to the job site and then it is fine. My bosch 18g or max framing nailer doesn’t have this problem and neither do either of my gas paslode framing or 26g.

    Not a big problem and maybe won’t happen again. We haven’t had this type of cold in over 10 years.

    Cold temperature really plays hvac on tools left in cold overtime .

    Strange that it is just that one. Nothing else has a problem. Also my portal cable left next to it works fine coming from the same situation. Minus the jambing lol

    Odd that it’s the only gun you have that wont shoot when cold.

    That’s what I’m saying. They all get oil and everything. Granted. The gun is COLD when it won’t shoot. Air come out of the tip but the pin is frozen I think. Works when warmed up slightly
