This was a great experience, it came before expected. The feel is of another quality tool from Milwaukee. Got the free sander on this deal, can’t beat that for the price.

It’s a solid product. I am completing finish work in my custom home and the unit performs perfectly. I look forward to the release of the new framing nailer.

This product works great for finish nailing, was skeptical to go to a battery operated nailer that doesn’t use gas, but have been very happy with the results. The 18 gauge Brad Nailer is even better.

So I've used this to nail 3/4" oak, 3/16" oak onto cabinets, also made of oak, and 3/4" MDF trim to wall studs through the drywall.

It will sink a 2-inch nail in oak. Plenty of power, battery lasts a while oh, the light shines just where you need it.
It's also easy to load, and better yet, easy to unload unused nails.
The depth adjustment is easy to use, but there's no arrows indicating which direction to turn it to sink the nails deeper or shallower. Just had to use common sense but when you're in a hurry you have to stop and think which way to turn it.

Use this product for installation of wood siding (for small repairs and exterior trim as well as for suspended interior trim. Works great - easy to adjust depth and works identically to pneumatic finish nailers without the inconvenience of a hose and air compressor. This is an incredible tool.

What nails do you use with this nail gun?
A shopper on Feb 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Model 2742-20 will accept any 16 gauge nails. We attached the information below from the manufacturer:

Fastener Length...................... min 1.25" / max 2.5"
Collation Angle................................................... 20°
Fastener Size (Diameter).................... 16 Ga / 1.6 mm
Magazine Capacity.........................................110 nails
Will this nailer take any brand of angled 16ga nail?
A shopper on Mar 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I started with this nailer trying to use Pasload brand 2 1/2 inch nails.....It would misfire half the time....I tried DeWalt nails and it shoots fine....Both brands of nails claim to be the same degree angle but after placing one section of Dewalt nails atop a section of Pasload nails, it's obvious there is a difference. The difference is small, however it's enough to cause misfiring, with the longer nails.....I have used 1 1/4 inch nails both Pasload and Dewalt brand without any problems.
I've tried everything to get this nailer to set nails. Depth adjustment doesn't work, different nail types and sizes don't either. Anyone else experiencing this problem? Is there a solution that I am not aware of? I bought this gun for convenience, but have put it away and gone back to my pneumatic!
