    Very Unhappy with This Nail Gun
    I have been using DeWalt tools for the last 19, 20 yrs and have never head major problems or not be happy with there products. Until i got this 16 Ga. Precision Point nailer. I do interior trim so I use mine on a regular basis. I`ve had this nailer for 5 months and the more I use it the more I have to set the nails. the adjustment wheel for the nail set will not work after alot of use. Not happy with the gun and would not buy another one. I hav to now get another nailer for my work, it won`t be a DeWalt, for the first time it will be another brand.

    This was my first finish nailer from Dewalt. I'm very impressed so far. Very easy to adjust nail depth and easy to load. I needed a nailer that would allow for 2 1/2 " nails and this has done exactly what i needed it to! Handy pencil sharpener built right in!

    I had an older Porter Cable finishing nailer that would always shoot two nails or get jammed. I recently purchased the Dewalt nailer and all my problems went away. I read a lot of reviews before purchasing it and to tell you the truth, they didn't do justice to how great it is. It worked so well, I finished my project earlier than expected.

    Old non-name was stolen last year. I started to do a small job and part of it was replacing the old baseboards and casing and I realized I needed a replacement. I did a few comparisons, bit I bought this one because of the brand. I am impressed on the overall easy to use. I know I made a great choice.

    Working great so far.
    I haven't used this product too much but I do like it much better than my brad nailer so far. The nails are easier to drive and don't bend as easily. It is a great product so far.

    Built like a tank
    Super ergonomic handle that is easy to hold even if you have big hands. Precision tip makes it easy to see where the nail is going to go.

    Great finish nailer !!
    Not a lot of experience with finish nailers, but that's not a problem with this one. Very easy to learn and use like a pro, especially like the precision point that lets you nail exactly where you want to.
    Really couldn't expect anymore !!!

Can get your job done quick.It is a safe tool.One complaint that I have is that they don't provide enough nails when bought.Only provides 100 nails.But overall, it is an AMAZING product!!!

    Dude, just go ahead and buy the whole set.
    Light weight, easy to put the nail where I want it, and no oil from my old dinosaur on the trim. That's money in my pocket, bro. Yeah, it was a chunk of change -- I bought the whole set, but the punch list just got shorter. Take your old nailers and use 'em for wheel chocks.

    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.
