Review: I've used this to frame a handicap ramp in my community and it drove the 3-1/2\" 16d nails without a problem. They were all driven pretty consistently too. The downside of using the full head nails is that you have to reload more often. Luckily Porter Cable has made that a snap so its not a big deal. It is bulky though, so I had to think about the order of how I wanted to frame the joists so I could get as many nailed with the nailer before the hammer comes out of the truck. It is light but it feels strong and durable but I do not truly know because I haven't dropped it yet.

Pros: handles full head nails. light. balanced well. easy to clear jams

Cons: no case. sometimes fires twice (but you can get the single fire trigger from PC for free). bulky
