Editor's Review: 23-gauge Pin Nailers Change Everything

review date: May 1, 2007

Unlike some other models in this price range, the Bostitch comes with a sturdy carrying case and 1500 pins to get you started. The model we tested jammed occasionally, but none of the several people we spoke to who own the gun reported the same problem. The pinner has a long nosepiece to get into tight places and an adjustable power level meant to eliminate fussing with the compressor. We never needed to turn down the power, however.

Two minor complaints are that the viewing slot in the track is a bit too small, and the trigger safety is a bit too large.
