Editor's Review: Tool Test: 16-Ga. Finish Nailers

review date: January 1, 2009

This nailer seems to be constructed ruggedly. The magazine allows for fastener-length identification, the curved nosepiece and no-mar tip offer good line of sight, and the smooth, responsive sequential trigger has a pivoting safety lock for when the nailer is not in use. This nailer is clearly a close relative to the Porter-Cable FN250B, but it costs more.
