bought this nailer in a value pack, it came with a stapler. never use the stapler but the nailer is incredible. Paid 90 bucks for it which i think is more then a great deal. Still its definetly the best nailer ive ever had. Good Job DeWalt.
Pros: High quality construction, up to 2in nails, great price
The nail holder for any of these dewalt 18g finish guns are basically the same, they rely on a groove in the plastic nail holder to keep the nails in place . . when you use a senco ay nail, or az nail little or no head, they wander all over the place and misfire, use a medium head and you'll fire all day long without mishap . .the belt loop could be a time saver so best to buy the newest iteration, the type 3. For some reason the retailers have them, but the photo and parts diagram on the Dewalt site itself SAY they are type 3 but don't include the segmented depth adjuster nor belt loop hanger??? Loads easy enough, and the no mar head is a bit bulky, but you can usually see around it
Pros: no misfires as long as you use a medium head nail
