Nice finish nailer
Comments about Bosch Tools 16 Ga Straight Finish Nailer:
This is the third size of nailer I have from Bosch. It worked well on the tasks I put it through. It is fairly light weight and easy to handle. Great features, as I have found in all their nailers I own. My main concern may be overcome with more time with the tool but I found the loading and unloading of nails to be somewhat clumsy. It could use a belt clip also.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I was excited about the possibilities of these new nailers so I bought both the 18 and 16 gauge nailers. Neither is capable of sinking nails completely. I tried increasing the air pressure to nearly 120 psi, tried different compressors and even switched hoses. Thanks goodness I tested them before using them on finished work! I am so disappointed with both purchases and can't believe unproven and unreliable technology is being released. Frustrated to have to send both back and eat the shipping costs. Buy another brand.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
best for its catagory

hi i have this gun for 2 months and it gets the job right first time i used to had the portercable ridgid dewalt kobalt hitachi brad nailers and this is by far its best but as user manual says oil it everyday with proper oil in heavy use cases 2 times this thing puts the nail in all the way in soft or hardwood guy is saying that he cant put nail 1 1/2 nail in to 3/4 oak in my many cases i use hard woods and never had any problem yet even with 2 inch nails but also you gotta know how to operate the tools daily for long term use get bosch or go home
110 psi and counting.

Bought this gun to replace a porter cable. I figured Bosch had figured out the air nailers but this one disappoints. The adjustment for the depth is average. The reload lever is above average. The air director is above average. A swivel air connector would have been a nice feature, Bostich crown stapler I recently purchased had one. The major flaw is this nailer will just not drive a 1.5" inch brad into 3/4 oak. I wasted money. I have cranked the regulator up too far for my comfort and still will not bond two pieces of oak. Flush possibly, but no consistent counter sinking. Soft materials obviously are easier to work with but I had hoped this product would have worked with hardwoods. Porter cable I borrowed to see if it just can't be done, no, the Bosch nailer just can't do. Disappointed.
User manual is not available online (message was "could not be found") .Gun was purchased new from the store but without a manual on a weekend. Even with adjustments to the gun and to the air pressure the nails do not go in deep enough. had to manually sink every nail. Was used for mdf casings & last rows of hardwood flooring. The shroud around the driver should be removable for T&G flooring. very frustrating. Lightweight compact design, nice balance, easy to load & unload, looks good but...
Nails are never steep enough!
The worst gun I have ever use. I would recommande a bostitch that is half the price. All plastic... if it falls from my pouch I think it will be completely destroyed.
Well Balanced, Light Weight, Well Designed
I appreciate this well-designed nailer. It is compact, lightweight (yet sturdy), and packed with nice features. Jams (rare) are a breeze to clear and reload is very fast.
This is a very effective and precise nailer....

This is a very effective and precise nailer. Very easy to use and feels solid. The quality is tops. Highly recommend this product. I've used it as a volunteer on a jobsite.
great nailer, really smooth and relatively quiet as well
