Paslode Framer Dry Fire Help


I have been having problems with my Paslode power framer, the gun is dry firing on the last few nails of a rack. From what I can tell the next rack of nails is getting pushed of to the side of the nails before it. Causing the first rack to bind up and not advance. Does anyone have any experience with this same problem?

It's been a while since I've used a paslode,but I recall having this problem and We figured out that it was the no-name brand of nails we used from the lumber yard. Certain brands of nails just aren't made quite up to par,especially if marked as "one size fits all these guns". If the racks are wicked old,got wet or were banged around too much it could jam things up too. Assuming that the gun itself looks fine without excessive wear in the magazine or follower,I'd try paslode brand nails before tearing it apart.

x2. Paslode brand nails, although more spendy, are superior for their guns.

Same goes for cheap coil nails. Same principal we all know, you generally spend more for quality and less headaches.
