I've used an older Makita AN922 for 21-22 degree full -head nails. Has depth adjustment so you don't have to deal with hi and lo pressures of compressor. Nice tool... no jams. New model is AN923.

If you want a new, off the shelf model, you can't go wrong with the Paslode F350S model. Good price regularly and I've seen sales often.

Didn't read the whole thread, but the Hitachi (older model with 83 in it) is a tried and true model, highly respected by those who use it daily. If you go this route, it will most likely be used, just buy a rebuild kit for it!

I can assure you the Makita has the power...and the depth adjustment (separate from adjusting pressure on the compressor) is very nice. Of course we all have our own preferences. I've never used a gun for all day/every day work so that might make me think differently, but for a round head straight gun, I think it's very well balanced. Local repair shop thinks they fare better than other guns regarding repairs. I guess you just stick with what works for you.

Hitachi NR90AC3

http://www.amazon.com/Hitachi-NR90AC.../dp/B0001VNWKS



I used this gun 6 days per week for about 5 years straight without any issues. I mostly shot 3" .131 or .148 HDG unless 3 1/2" were spec'd, then it was .162 HDG.

I sold it cheap when I got out of framing........I kinda want one back.......but I don't think their made in Japan anymore.
