    the bosch nailers were discontinued.. due to both lack of sales and being very problematic.. almost every one i know who had the framer had to get them sent in for rebuilds within 6 months only to have issues again very soon after. the 18 gauge was notorious for depth of drive which i had problems with until i modified mine. the 23 gauge actually works very well. i have two of them.. the only issue i had was with trying to shoot 1 3/8 pins jamming in it.. which its supposed to shoot.. 1 1/4 is the actual max size it can shoot

    there have been rumors of a complete redesign though

    heres a tip, dont fart in a space suit

    Jeff,

    My 23 gauge gun shoots 1 3/8″ pins with no issues. I run mine at about 95PSI..what are you running? Oil it regularly?

    Huh, wonder if Bosch design/made these themselves or were they just rebranded from another manufacturer.

    They look like originals. The 23ga is tiny, unlike many others out at that time. Since then, smaller units have surfaced from other manufacturers.

    Heh, goes to show you expertises in electric doesn’t translate into pneumatic, despite both being close enough as far as end purpose goes.

    I don’t think Bosch has a nailgun factory. I sure they were built by a factory that does that type of work.

    Pneumatics that you see in stores is as you suspected older stock. There are no new pneumatics in the pipeline, so if you fancy one then snap them up where you can find them as there won’t be any new ones coming out soon (or at all).

    I saw displays in two different Menards stores but they were priced at full retail. I would bet you will saa a big sale on them soon. When they clearanced them before, framers were 100 bucks and the pinner and 18GA about 50 or less.

    If I’m correct, I expect them to go on sale next week. I’m in Menards All The Time…I feel like sale items tend to be piled up somewhere just before they are discounted…just like these were.

    With clearance pricing you going to see different places from one store to the next it’s typically based on what the head office says to clear dodat depending on what their cost was to bring the tool in the first place locally we have 3 different big box stores Home Depot Kent building supplies and Rhona Home Depot generally has the best clearance prices on Tools as they have the biggest buying power can sympathetic for clearance pricing half the time it’s like $10 off and even at regular price with a clearance tag Rona he isn’t too too bad but its not too often they have things on clearance

    @r-ice your best bet is to look in rona or lowes stores. i beleive they were the only places to get them in.. locally they were only ever sold in one rona location which has since shut down

    Since they are indeed discontinued you might think about how warranty works now, since you probably won’t get a replacement and their may not be any parts to fix it.

    I think I stay away because of the parts issues.

    hmm well I doubt i’ll find any, I will eventually pick up a different brand. I haven’t really decided yet anyways.

    Probably a good idea. Parts will become an issue.

    That’s a good price, but for about $50 more you can get a Hitachi that is still in production.
