Rated 1 out of 5 by from I purchased this one in 2013 because I was reluctant to spend the cost for another Paslode trim nailer. I should have known better. This has been the most anemic tool I have ever owned. From the very start, it has never driven a finish nail flush. In soft wood into drywall, it will not flush nail. I ALWAYS have to follow up with a nail set. I had hoped for better. All of the other Rigid brand tools I have work fine. Not this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Won't sink nails anymore I hate to write a poor review regarding any Ridgid tools, however, this nail gun worked for half a job. Not only was it half a job, but the job was running 200 feet of shoe molding. The gun worked great at first, then stopped setting the nails. Like an idiot, I did not register the gun, at least I don't think I did because I can't locate it online, but to be fair, I can't find any of my Ridgid tools online for some reason. I know this nail gun has a lifetime service contract, but I'm sure since I can't locate the gun online Ridgid will not honor the contract. Again I used this gun for half of one job. The job was 4 years ago and this gun has been in my shop in a box stored away. The gun almost looks new, so, it is obvious it has very little use. So, in a nutshell, I like Ridgid products, I am just very upset about this one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Absolute garbage This works terribly. I bought one and when at it's top power setting it cannot set a 2 inch nail. Not a single one goes below the surface. If you want to throw money away, buy this gun. Otherwise buy something else. I cannot stress how disappointed I Ann with this product

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Underpower and overrated I had bought this around October of 2017 to try a cordless nailer. It was okay for basic carpentry like nailing half inch plywood. Unfortunately, I did not realize until February of 2018, when I started using it to install baseboards and chair rails that this tool is basically is useless. 10 out of 10 of my 2 inch nails did not sink! I am not even nailing through a stud! If I had known before the return policy expired, I would have returned this tool. RIGID customer service please help me resolve this waste of my $200! That would be greatly appreciated.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out of the box- ready to go We bought this tonight for some finishing at my wife’s business- she owns a spa and salon. This is our first nail gun. We’ve always loved our Ridgid products and we’re still very pleased. The tool worked wonderfully right out of the box and I very quickly realized that the nail will do as advertised (and what you’d like it to do). For those of you saying you had a bad experience with Ridgid... not the case and not quite the opposite. Very happy Ridgid customer.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Job I love this tool. I have had it since December and have been very pleased with the performance. I have installed hundreds of feet of molding already with this tool and it has paid for itself in time savings. No compressor to set up or hose to drag around. One design flaw is the depth adjustment knob is sometimes in the way when installing a molding at the floor. I hope Ridgid gets on the ball and makes a 23ga model (Makita beat you to it).... Online registration does NOT work so be prepared to register by mail

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does the job with perfection. First things first, this Brad Nailer DOES SET NAILS COMPLETELY BENEATH SURFACE, I have had no problems whatsoever even with some really dense/hard wood species. I hope people realize the depth is adjustable. Overall this nailer is amazing and has reduced my on-site service call time greatly! Thanks Ridgid.

Where can I see the nail size choices?

I have been searching on how the nails are sold. I need to view the nail choices for sale to use in this nailer. Where can I buy the nails? I tried to search on the Home Depot website but can't locate nails for sale for this nailer. Thanks, Dave

Thank you for contacting RIDGID. We found 18 gauge brad nails pictured on-line, at the SENCO website: . They offer a very large selection of fasteners and have pictures on their website.
