Definitely worth itself.
Changing to a battery only system so far has been great. No further need for the air or gas cartridges. Anxiously awaiting trying the framing nailer next.

Perfect nailing every time. It’s a little heavy but does the job well.

Excellent trim gun
We’ve used this gun everyday for a month and have had one jam which was cleared easily. We have installed interior and exterior trim in various materials with no problems. The only issue I have seen is the depth gauge needs adjusted between users. The gun has a little recoil and each person handles it a little different.

Very convenient!
Works great. All batteries last forever this gun hardly uses up the power. I will never run hoses and a compressor again, that alone is awesome.

I will never go back to a hose
The nailer is amazing. The only isssues I have had this far is locating nails. As far as I know the only maker of nails for this gun is pasloade. Which can be difficult to locate at times. ( online and big box stores are the only place i have found them. Milwaukee is working with me to find a solution, and I couldn't be happier with them. Despite the nails i still wouldn't change it for anything. Its so quite and light weight.

Well built, “heavy” duty
Like all of my Milwaukee tools this is well built. A little bulkier than I would like but definitely heavy duty. I was doing overhead moulding so it was a little cumbersome.
Like other reviews, the nose piece is large so it takes some practice to line up the nail for placement on the object you’re securing.

This nailer works just like I wanted
I bought this to make installing the trim around the perimeter for my siding jobs easier. And so far I dont regret it.

I have only used this for two projects, but I have found it comfortable to handle reliable and so much easier (and quieter) than using an air compressor.

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!
