    Thanks
    I really like Makita AF505N Brad Nailer as I have used it for three years. I am not a heavy user but certainly I have used it for more than 5,000 brads from 20 mm t o 50 mm (2 inches), most of them were 30mm. No single jam.

    Less than USD 100 in the USA.

    All the best.

    I have a Grex, a PC, and a Hitachi. Why three? It's the tool I'm most likely to forget at the shop and re-buy because it's easier than driving back. Pin nailers and coping saws... I don't think I've ever used a coping saw twice, just keep buying them. At Christmas this year, everyone is getting a pin nailer or a coping saw, lightly used.

    23 gauge pins (headless fasteners) are a different animal...

    The most expensive tool is the one you buy "cheaply" and often...

    Another Air Locker user! Uncommon brand. Mine shoots 1 3/16" (30 mm), I wouldn't mind 1 3/8" (35mm). My gun has a safety sort of like bigger guns, a metal loop around the tip. The metal loop can prevent getting the tip real close to a vertical part, I think the two trigger arrangement is better. The gun works well though, I don't think I've ever had a misfire or jam.

    I can totally related, but not with pin nailers or coping saws specifically.

    Mine is a Bosch, works great so far, had it a couple of years.

    I've got a Grex, PC, and a Bostich, all have performed as designed for years. The Grex is the 2" model. It's my go to, especially in finished work situations where I just need a little holding power untill glue sets up.

    I have the Grex which will shoot 2" pins. I don't think I ever used 2" pins. Great pinner - never had a problem.

    Of course, that's more than $100.

    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.
