My rep gave me one to try out. It works fine for a righthander but it's to tight for a lefty. He said they released it to see what kind of feedback they got about the new look.

if your referring to the one with flames on it.....

I'd say it works alright, a buddy of mine got one and let me nail some joists up when I visited his site one day.

I'll let you know any negative feedback that he gives me...:cool:

"the green hornet" has been performing well for us for almost 6 months... just keep it clean and oiled.
I bought it on sale thinking it would end up being a backup pistol.
I was wrong.
My guys like it.

Why dont framing guns come with a storage box!

what is the purpose of the cliped head nail as opposed to the regular framing nails in a regular framing gun
I believe they're just so you can fit more nails on a clip, - - and at a lesser angle.

Some areas don't allow them anymore, - - as they don't have as much pull-out resistance.

I'm seeing more and more tools coming without a hard case. Most combo kits come in bags now. My assumption is that the tool companies are just cutting back on costs. I hate the bag my combo kit came in - they never seem to all fit back in properly!
