Sharp-Fire Autofeed Screw Gun Review
This autofeed screw gun from Milwaukee has an easy tool-free bit-change procedure
The fit and finish of this German-made autofeed screw gun are excellent. The screw-advancement mechanism is smooth and sensitive. It also had the easiest tool-free bit-change procedure of any unit tested. The machine’s only drawback is that its flexible tape collations eat up more reloading time than either coils or rigid rope collations. It was easy to put this unit to work right out of the box , and the 1-3/4-in. to 3-in. range of fasteners makes it useful for decks and subfloors. This is the same tool as the PAM Straight-Shooter III. Although the particular model we tested has been discontinued, Milwaukee has released newer models in the Sharp-Fire line.
The kit as tested included the autofeed unit with extra nosepiece, a spare drive bit, an Allen wrench set, a 20-1/2-in. extension with side handle, a screw gun, and a hard plastic case.
