    Compact nail gun
    I bought this nailer specifically to install wood planks on hallway wall that required 18 gauge 2 “ nails to hang. My 15 gauge gun would have split the wood. This gun performed perfectly. Great product.

    This gun nails it on the head!
    This gun is great for the different size brads it takes as well as the oil free maintenance. I still recommend a little oil. This product is great for beginners as well as the professional. Ask yourself what do you have to lose.

    New Vs. Reconditioned

    What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

    Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
    • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
    • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
    • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 120 days.
