I've had this gun for at least 8 years and it's been flawless. Only needed to replace the trigger valve once. I originally used this gun for both framing nails and siding with the adjustable depth siding nose. I found the drum to be too large for framing so the gun morphed into a siding/sheathing only gun. The extended magazine capacity makes it perfect for nailing sheathing because refills are so infrequent. The heavy coil of nails makes the gun way too heavy to be using overhead. Recently the spring that retained the depth setting broke so I set about buying a replacement. I was flabbergasted when I found that replacement siding noses were worth more than the gun! The kit was several times more expensive than I originally paid for the kit. I ended up having a machine shop make the replacement part and will remember this lesson when considering my next Bostich gun.
