Rated 4 out of 5 by from Has worked well for some time Other reviews are accurate that you need to put some pressure behind it in order to drive into harder woods especially with 2+" nails. I have used this for pine trim as well as 3/4" Hickory flooring in tight spaces. I have shot 1000+ nails in the past year and even purchased an additional one. It drives an incredible number of nails on one charge! Now for the bad news. Mine stopped working this week. The plunger stopped working correctly. Im guessing the gearing from the motor to the plunger shaft. Took it to my local Home Depot for repair. I was pretty disappointed that they charged me a $20 diagnostic fee. The equivalent of a deductible for an insurance policy I guess. On a final note, the body of the nailer is so large that getting into some corners or tight spots(under cabinet, kick plate) can be a problem. All in all, it beats dragging a hose around and listening to a compressor all day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goodbye compressor First let me say I was on the fence with this nail gun. I read many negative reviews and comments. I also know my 16 Ridgid power tools have never failed me and when they did it was after years of reliable service. I owned the Ryobi Airstrike and had no luck so I returned it. When I saw this I decided to try it. I attached a 4 Ah battery loaded the gun with 2&1/2 inch nails and hung a closet door . The jambs or door frame was MDF . The first few nails did not countersink. And I thought wow the reviews were right ...but then I applied a minimal amount of pressure and every nail went through without an issue. I then installed the trim fj pine through 1/2 drywall this time using 1 &1/2 nails no problems at all. The gun worked perfectly . Just for the heck of it before I hung the other doors I nail a 2x4 to the face of another 2x4 just to see what would happen . I used 2 &1/2 inch nails . No problem it countersunk every nail . I then added 1/2 inch drywall to the double 2x4s and nailed the trim to that! I fired some 40 nails throught 2 2x4s. 1/2 inch drywall and trim! No misfires or jams.the gun is sturdily built comes with a nice carry bag and supply of nails. The LED light is functional and also serves as a diagnostic tool as well. I see many negative reviews and I am not doubting them at all my friend swears by his Ryobi and mine died after 3-4 nails! But if you apply a small amount of downward pressure it works perfectly. I am more than satisfied with my purchase. And my registration went 1.2.3

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't set nails Won't set nails even in spruce . Fix it . You know this is not an isolated incidence these nailers don't work . Waste of time and money. New products should be better not worse .

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wont Nail I agree with the other reviews, It wont nail. It worked for the first few nails but then it just stopped driving the nails in. The depth is set for as deep as possible and the pressure is turned up all the way. It just bounces off the wood. The good thing is I went back to Home Depot and the replaced it with out any questions. Home Depot is awesome . I will try another one because Home Depot is awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent finish nailer I have no idea what these other reviewers are talking about. I have used this nail gun extensively for all the trim work in a 1200 sf ranch and haven't had a issue with nail depth. I didn't pull my nail set out of my tool pouch once. I've also used it to finish a bar that I built utilizing oak and once again with the proper settings I never pulled out my nail set once. In my opinion it far exceeds the Paslode finish nailers I've used in the past. Thanks again Ridgid for another quality tool.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Will not set nails I bought this for a DYI baseboard job. I love my Ridgid tools, but this one got returned. It would not set nails in MDF base boards. Took it back to Home Depot with no issues. I am hoping it will get redesigned. Power was turned all they way up and set depth set to max. I had a brand new 4 amp battery.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be better... Just purchased this nailer a couple days ago in hopes I could save time on my smaller jobs. Gave the battery a full charge before testing, but even then with the air and depth adjustment set to full, it would barely sink the nails below the surface of the wood. I still feel it will save time vs. my pneumatic guns, but I will be sure to have a nail set on hand.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from as others stated "wont sink nails so, safe to say I qualify as "expert" owning ( I just counted them) 21 nail guns over 5 brands. with that said I also am partial to ridged power tools.( it would take me too long to go thru the trucks to count all the ridged tools my company owns. as other reviews stated gun wont counter sink at highest setting. at best it is just proud of flush. we tested exactly 200 nails and used two separate brands. in a white pine 2 x 4 nails 2.5 in were just proud, you heard metal to metal and felt the "bump" lightly running a puddy knife over the wood. at the highest depth setting it was clearly 1/8 inch. completely un acceptable for any kind if interior trim. every nail would show with any kind of gloss /painted finish. NOTE removing the foot cushion allowed the nail to set about a 64th just enough to allow some room for puddy to stick. But why would I want to throw away the foot guard from a brand new gun! we moved on to nailing a piece of 356 casing to an "old 2 x 4. results were consistently the same. this gun is just slightly underpowered. if your going to try a remodel that has old hard 2 x4 s forget it...hard woods....forget it. sorry to say this is going back.
