No there is no PPN for 3" nails that I know of.
Actually bostich has them with quick release removable tips. Stopped using them because 21degree TECO nails where getting harder and way too expensive. I'm pretty sure they they make their 30degree framer.

I would never buy the cordless Teco gun- unless it could shoot 3 nails.

Calling it a Teco gun ages you.

Re: Positive Placement Nailer With 3.5inch Nail For Joist Hangers


Calidecks or anyone else .What did you end up doing .
I have that BIG bostick nailer .Not at all easy to handle laying on my back crawling around . Seems like either tight quarters makes placement less reliable or my tip is warn .i was missing a lot holes on this last project .
thinking i will get a gun that uses only a single sleeve of nails and shoots 2 1/2" .

I still use the bostich pneumatic PP gun with the half magazine. Use the framer for the double shear nails.

I have the made in Japan version of this one. Much smaller head.

I have a hard time finding the longer nails local though

I don't like the nose piece on the Hitachi. Much more efficient using the nail on the Bostich. Imo

Consider: http://www.beafastenersusa.com/gb/pr...an-r60-34-deg/

Max length is 3 3/8" though. 34 degrees paper.

.157 diameter, although maybe the .148 will work.

BeA used to make Hitachi's old framing staplers.
