1. They kick back
2. They jam about every 7 or so shots
3. They don't fully penetrate hardwood like maple or oak
4. The nails tend to be low quality
Get a combi set compressor and nail gun. The guns are easy to unjam, except
they almost never jam. You also get the benefit of compressed air for many
Then you like it so much you get more nail guns. Keep away from the basic
brands like Accuset. They are Senco's chepie line, with plastic parts that will
break fairly soon. Go with the Senco, PC, Hitachi, etc. If you live on Long
Island, go to Long Island Staple in East Rockaway, in Nassau COunty. Their
nails are a better quality, plus if you buy their brand of nailer (I got their
PoAnn whch is really a Hitachi), repairs are free with a lifetime warranty.
Uh-I've been using it for 4 years now, and it istill still perfect, so I guess
that is why they go for the lifetime warranty.
They took apart my Accuset, and showed me the difference.
