    Got a great price on this. I prefer how my Porter Cable loads, but this was a great choice for the money. I never had a tool shipped before and this gun was at my door in a few days in perfect condition. I would definitely buy here again.

    Comments about 21 Degree 3-1/2 in. Framing and Metal Connector Nailer:

    Purchased this tool because of the Name and Price. Advertised as being two tools in one, Framing Nailer and Metal Connector nailer. Well it is, but the reconditioned model did not come with the Metal Connector attachment. Probably will never need the attachment, but be aware that if you are looking for that use, this unit does not come with the option.

    Recon Unit came jammed and sandy

      Comments about 21 Degree 3-1/2 in. Framing and Metal Connector Nailer:

      The unit I received came with just the toe-nail tip and a manual. The metal connector tip was not included. The F21PL is stated to included both, it is not an accessory, it is part of the model. This same gun without the extra tip is model F21PL-2. The photos show both, and show the metal connector tip specifically. The unit also did not include any rubber caps for toe-nail tip (these were not expected, but should be noted). The above issue wasn't even the worst, the unit I received came pre-jammed with a nail firmly stuck and deep gouges on front from removal attempts. The sliding of the magazine also sounded like there was sand in it. This unit was clearly not from the manufacturer as a refurb, and was simply used, so I had no choice but to return it. Without a tip (making this model even cheaper), and without the trust of factory refurbishment, buying a new unit on sale (elsewhere) made more sense to me.

          I bought the gun to frame and install hangar and wind clips in a small hunting cabin in N Arizona. It worked flawlessly. The only disadvantage is finding the hangar nails for the gun...not very common locally. I was able to buy a case (5000) of Halsteel nails (American made, BONUS) locally for about the same amount as buying a box of the bostitch nails on line.
