Rated 5 out of 5 by from Needed a replacement for my old paslode that blew out... Needed a replacement for my old paslode that blew out a top seal on the job and is to old to rebuild. Saw the ratings on this 16 ga and said you are sold!!! Put it to work in less than an hour. I am super impressed with it!! Wish it were available when I bought the first gun.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Would not buy again This has to be the worst power tool I ever bought. It won't countersink in oak (unlike my DeWalt which I had for 8 years), barely countersinks 1/16 inch in pine. Yes, I have the countersink adjustment as far as it will go. I just nailed about 120 2 inch finishing nails. Had at least a dozen misfires and 2 dozen jams. It's also one of the most difficult nail guns to load and unload.

why are the reviews & Q&A for this nailer about every other Ridgid tool (mostly for saws)? Can HD clean this up? Makes it REALLY hard to figure out if this is a well reviewed product

Confused, I am looking at the Ridgid Pneumatic 16-gauge nailer reading the reviews but everyone is talking about the Ridgid hose and not the gun? Where are the reviews for the nail gun??

Can you use this nailer for framing?

Asked by: bmanct
I would say absolutely NOT unless you're framing a doll house or with studs about 1X1 you physically can't frame with this. this is what would be considered a STRAIGHT FINISH NAILER in 16 gauge. purpose/usage - crown molding baseboard birdhouses trim work FINISH CARPENTRY work. what you would want is a framing gun that can handle nail wouldn't be in a gauge presa but a framing nailer should be able to use nails size - 3 1/2"X162 to 2 1/2"X148 ect ect YOU ONLY USE 162 FOR FRAMING NOT the cripples or blocks for those you use 131's if you don't understand what that means YOU NEED TO DO SOME RESEARCH BEFORE YOU BUY AND A FRAMING OR FINISHING GUN so you don't have a safety/structural issue. I hope this helps

My new nailer sparks near the point of contact. Is this normal? I was nailing new 2x4 pine blocks together with 2? nails. No metal. Ridgid chat agent said take it to a service center. I would rather replace, but will I have the same problem?

Hi. HDCCO. Thank you for your interest in the RIDGID Pneumatic 16-Gauge 2-1/2 in. Straight Finish Nailer with CLEAN DRIVE Technology. No, this problem should not be happening. It is not a common problem so if you purchase a new one you should not have the same issue.
