    hey guys,
    im not quite sure if there is already a post for it on the forum but I just couldn’t find it.
    I want to expand my tool arsenal with the Bosch framing gun.
    I can’t find any videos on youtube to make my decision easier.
    Yes I read a few reviews on the internet but I kinda looking forward to the BTP advices.
    Does anyone has the framing gun?
    lowest price I can find right now is 260 bucks.

    Hey @madman_us ! I can’t help directly with that tool but I know a lot of guys here have a few different Bosch air guns. Hopefully someone with one will chime in.

    I do think Bosch either discontinued or changed a bunch of the air tools last year as many places had them discounted down.

    Thanks Andrew,
    I have 2 guns but not a framing gun.
    They discontinue those items

    The pneumatic line was cancelled.

    I own the 23ga pinner, which is awesome. The 18ga gun I bought and returned because it couldn’t set a 2″ nail in oak.

    As far as I know, the 23ga has been well.received, but all of the others have issues.

    jponto07 Had seen them. I think he was at Menards and they had a few on a pallet. They thought it was about to be marked down.

    I saw them at Menards. Guess where they are now?

    They put them 15′ in the air on a shelf….back stock! NONE of them are actually down at customer level. No display, no tags…nothing. I find that a little strange. As of yet, only one size has been on sale (website), but none in the store.

    The 260 seems high for the framing gun, I think I got mine for around a hundred bucks. I have not used it yet, Kind of keeping it in reserve since we have several guns, Paslode, Makita and Hitachi. check out this thread on the guns and see @jkirk comments about others he knows experience with the guns.

    I have never seen a Bosch framing gun.. Hitachi is the big one over here. I see a lot of Max guns out there too.

    @HomeDepot the framing guns are all around $200-250
    Bosch’s clipped head framing gun is much cheaper but i cant find those nails here. hard to come by

    Not sure of your codes, but clipped head nails are not accepted in all jurisdictions.

    IIRC our code change was 2011.

    Clipped heads are definitely not allowed here. I caught wind of that little fact prior to buying my first framing gun (thankfully!). I’ve heard stories about inspectors making guys reframe because of clipped head nails.

    Friend of mine told me; when he has inspection dates for the framing…they never look at the nails.
    but i dont worry so much about it, because its gonna be mainly for hobby.

    The clipped heads suck because sometimes you need to pull them out and the nail bar has a hard time grabbing them.

    Yeah, I can’t stand clipped head. Not to mention they are against code for a lot of things

    What would be the advantage of a clipped head nail?

    clipped head do not work in seismic zones (California)we can use them as we are in a non seismic area. we also use full head. Paslode makes full head in a paper collation with an offset head. I like the 30 degree nails a lot better than the 21 degree with all of the plastic collation pieces flying around.

    As far as I can tell, the clipped head allows them to be stacked at a steeper angle…thus more nails can fit into a gun of approximately the same size.

    Aside from that…nothing. They are the same.
