Yep. I got a blue one and red one. The blue 'fine line' really is what it claims to be. You can snap the top or bottom edge of a laser line with it, really precise line great for setting cabinets or hardwood floor layout. Got the red for framing and it works, but the line is a bit small and hard to see in certain situations, and bought it before I realized they made them with different diameter line.

The no drip on my Kobalt one works too..... before the push rod broke off the plunger. Iíd take a picture but itís completely coated with pl premium. I doubt I got 15 tubes out of that gun.

That sound? At the 7:50 mark?

Same thing this one does.

Bring it in, warm it up, squirt some pb blaster down the ram, and ya might get 3-5 shots when you go back outside.

I told my project manager to put it back in his truck when we were done - and to never leave me alone in a room with it again.

Hopefully, it will now disappear, and "the next time" I'll simply pop for something a little more reliable.

Re: Ryobi AirStrike Trim Nailer - WORTHLESS


Anyone ever use this caulk gun?

Looks high quality. It looks like a caulker I had years ago that got the shlt beat out of it and lasted a long time.

Re: Ryobi AirStrike Trim Nailer - WORTHLESS


I will be he first to admit,Ryobi is made for the homeowner.

Now that we have that out of the way.....Weíve had some Ryobi for several years now. No issues. 18ga Brad nailers and staplers. 1 finish nailer.
In each truck. No issues.
In my opinion, Hitachi has the best technology. I canít complain about Ryobi. They have put in thousands of lineal ft of trim.

I will buy more. They are big and a little heavy, but I donít care. Everyone grabs the Ryobi first.

If they clearance the Hitachi a little more, Iíll by them for myself.

In the cold, they donít work too well. Below 30 degrees, not so great. Warm them in the truck for 10 minutes and no problem.

Re: Ryobi AirStrike Trim Nailer - WORTHLESS


Iíve been really impressed with my Dewalt 18 gauge. It seems to have more power than my Bosch and Dewalt pneumatic guns. No problem with 2Ē nails into red oak, and even sinks them toenailing at an angle the majority of the time.

I didnít think I would use it as much as I do, I also own the Ridgid one and it is a pos. Very little power and my main complaint is it wonít shoot if you hold the gun at even a slight angle instead of parallel to the work. Itís literally impossible to run shoe molding under cabinets with a toe kick.

The Dewalt has actually become my go to, though I picked it up for small jobs. Only downside is I can feel it wear on my elbow a little but when doing a lot of heavy nailing overhead, like 400í of crown.
