I am interested in replacing my ancient Duo Fast CN 350 framing
nailer. I have lots of nails (they seem to be 21 deg plastic collated
but I am not sure). I would like to buy a replacement gun, not
necessarily Duo Fast. Does anyone know a lighter weight gun which
DEFINITELY uses these nails.
the NR83A2 Hitachi Framing Nailer is a 22 degree gun. I have had
success running nails that are a degree or two different from what the
gun was built for. take a stick of your nails to your best local tool
dealer and compare them to what they have in stock, and try the guns for
balance and heft...
If the replacement does not need to be new, the Hitachi NR83A has been
around for quite some time, so used ones should be plentiful. If you
like the new features such as depth of drive and selectable trigger
control, then only the most recent models have them.
The weight is 7.9 pounds and it is very well balanced. I have the
NR83A with the selectable trigger from an A2 model installed.
I bought a heavy HF 04041 21 degree wih plastic collated nails just to
check it out for a small project prior to doing a deck. It is around 10
I found some generic 21 degree nails and they say that they are for
Hitachi NR83A and NR90AC2
Porter Cable FR350 and FR350MAG
Senco All Fram Pro 600 FRH and 700FRH series
Hope this helps.
