This notice was emailed to me. I have posted it in a couple of areas on the forum, not to be annoying, just an FYI... sorry to be redundant.

Here it is:
CPSC Recall DEWALT Framing Nailers​
The Consumer Product Safety Commission, in cooperation with DEWALT Industrial
Tool Co., of Towson, MD, has recalled the DEWALT D51825 and D51850 Framing Nailers.
The bump action trigger on the framing nailers may have been incorrectly assembled, which
would allow the nailer to eject a fastener unexpectedly or cause the trigger lock-off not to
function. This can pose a serious injury hazard to the user or bystander. No injuries to individual
consumers have been reported to date.
The recalled Framing Nailers were sold at wholesale distributors and retailers nationwide
from January 2008 through September 2008 for about $280. The recalled Framing Nailers are
those with model numbers and date codes listed below:​
Model Number Description Date Code Range​
D51825 Clipped Head Framing Nailer 20080249-20082749​
D51850 Full Round Head Framing Nailer 20080249-20082749

I was actually just looking at buying one of these units and came on here to see what people's opinions are on this model. They are on sale next week for $128 cdn. Probably the refurbished units being re-sold for cheap.
scary, i just got the new princess auto flyer today and they have these guns for sale for like $150

from my experience with dewalt nailers, they should just avoid making them all together anyway... stick with hitachi or paslode
