    Honolulu,, Hi.

    I once dropped a Grip Rite framing nailer about 30 ft onto concrete. It leaked a little bit but kept firing nails.

    The grip rite is a solid gun. I don’t know why I don’t have the DeWalt framer yet?

    I’m not sure why I don’t either – it is high on my list. My old Paslode cordless (2005 model) still works but it is pretty finicky any more.

    All of the info in this thread makes it seem like a very nice gun for framing.

    From all I’ve heard it is a very good gun for framing. I need to get one.

    Both right now, I shot about 500 nails with it today. And it had its first jam today, the nail hit hit a big knot and bent up in the nose of the gun, i pull the gun off the nail and kept going.

    I have used it a few times when air was also around. Because of the weight, I really don’t like it for everyday use. Other than that, I have no complaints.

    That’s good you didn’t let that bent nail phase you.

    Wow you really put that gun through its paces day after day. Glad to see it really is able to perform under tough conditions.

    The gun sounds like a winner. That hip is nice and straight. Do you cut your jacks to length, nail to top plate layout and then nail to where it hits the hip? I don’t see a hip layout.

    Sounds like the gun is working great for you. You have definitely put it to work.

    All on one charge? If so that is pretty good.

    I believe the specs say 600 per charge. I have never counted, but I would say based on experience, that is pretty accurate.

    The one thing about the cordless on the building the roof when it’s dropped there’s no hose to slow it down..

    Yes all on one 4 amp battery.

    Yes we cut the jacks to length, nail it to the wall then to the hip, when the string is in the middle.

    So far, mine has not fallen farther than from a saw horse. Makes me think of devising a little bungee with a clip that could clip onto the users pouch.
