im looking to get a 16g brad nailer, a framing nailer and replace the silverline 18g brad nailer i was given as it getting a little worn out now.

i dont really need cordless nailers as i dont use them away from a power source but would really like something that works well and will last a while. just wanted to know your thoughts and what you guys and girls use

many thanks for the advice

The corded ones are #$/?. If you don't want one with gas then get one that used compressed air with a battery

really id like own a gun that will first fix as i have work to so in the garden id also like to have a 16g as i have skirting boards to put up along with wardrobes and desks to make and a 18g for trim work on wardrobes, desks and other odd jobs. i already own a compressor which should be man enough to run the nail guns so id like to stay with compressed air for the reason that they will only be used around my house and in my workshop but just looking for advice on which brands, models etc to go for as id like them to last awhile and not have to worry when i pick one up as it if its going to work or not

i had been looking at this for a 16g nailer https://www.ffx.co.uk/tools/product/Pas ... rad-Nailer

There are quite a few good names in pneumatic nailers including, but not limited to Senco, Maxx, Spotnails, BeA, Makita, Hitachi, Paslode, Bostitch and deWalt. When you get into 2nd fix, especially 18ga and smaller you can include names such as Grex, etc You can pay a little, or a lot for these middle to upper market guns. It may be worth noting that for beadings, etc a 21 to 24ga gun is better than an18ga gun as the holes are less obtrusive. I'd certainly go for an oil-less gun for the light work as pneumatic oil can spoil finishes subsequently applied.

I bought a 16g Senco pneumatic gun last week for £100 ish.... with a couple packs of pins...Marketed as semi-pro.

Only used it a few times so far, but does the job, fires in the 50mm pins without issue.


Went with senco, as i have a senco staple gun which ive had a fair while, and has been great.
