    Default Coil Gun recommendations

    What coil guns are people using out there.

    I've had 2 duo fast guns break the nose on me. At nearly $600 a pop im not going down that road again.

    Mainly used for shooting off joist hangers, triple grips and brace ply etc.

    Looking at bostitch ones but not really sure.

    Any recommendations?

    i have a MAX .. had it about 10 years ...just oil it every now and then.. hasn't stopped.. Around $800 tho...i found the bostich to be a bit heavy...senco or hitachi might be ok..just make sure it fires both plastic and wire collated nails..

    I have the Hitachi, works perfect, although it does get a bit upset with wire collated, I only use plastic collated now.

    I have makita and senco, I prefer the makita its a great gun. No problems taking wire or plastic collated 15 degree nails. The makita gun would be ten years old and would have fired several hundred thousand nails.

    Went with the bostitch. 7 year warranty is hard to pass up. Especially with my track record with tools.
    I have the flooring secret nailer and its as tough as, well, nails. So think it will do me.
    Thanks guys

    Good choice, Bostitch tools are very well made.
