Lightweight Framing Nailers

To test the guns’ ability to cycle quickly, the author nailed rapidly into doubled-up LVL material and counted the number of fasteners not driven flush.

Most of the guns tested have a selector switch next to or on the trigger that allows the carpenter to change freely between sequential and bump-fire modes.

The Bostitch converts easily to bump-fire, but the change is unlikely to be reversed because it requires the use of pliers.

Rafter hooks are practically indispensable, and it’s hard to believe that not every gun has one.
