When a firing pin won't return it's usually caused by damaged o-rings inside the gun. The most likely culprits are the o-rings around the outside of the cylinder or the rings on the drive piston. Another cause could be a cracked cylinder or bent driver. Remove the cap on top of the gun and check the condition of the o-rings, cylinder and driver. You'll have to order any parts that need to be replaced as Bostitch doesn't make a rebuild kit for this gun. Don't forget to lightly oil the o-rings with pnumatic gun oil when reassembling the gun. Most pin and finish nailers say they are oil-less but they still need a drop once in a while to keep the o-rings from being damaged.

Fires once, then why doesn't the firing pin return to fire again?


It could be one or both of the return springs are damaged (this typically happens when you fire the gun without it being against timber, had a young apprentice firing across a worksite for fun which wrecked the springs), could also be that the firing pin is bent or there is an obstruction in the cylinder preventing the pin which is fixed to piston from returning correctly.

I put a new o ring rebuild kit in my Bostitch N80 sb framing nailer. I replaced every o-ring (including the trigger valve assembly


If the new trigger valve leaks air when you connect the air supply, most likely defective valve or air is leaking past outer trigger valve orings due to debris in the slot or new orings were cut when the valve was pushed in. If air leaks when you depress safety to fire gun then most likely problem is in the head valve or safety foot is not pushing the firing pin all the way in. Easy test, remove nails and remove the trigger to expose the firing pin. Connect air and very quickly depress the firing pin all the way in. If the gun fires, adjust the safety foot as needed. If the gun does not fire, remove the head and check headvalve orings for good snug fit against the cylinder within the head. The surface were orings make contact must be very smooth and not too deeply worn. If you notice fine scratches remove with fine sandpaper. Reinstall head using plenty of white grease on all the orings within the head and retest. Good luck

Can anyone help. ive got a hilti dx450 that won't fire, ive stripped it down and given it a good clean but still no luck getting it to work. could anyone tell me if there should be some sort of firing...


You are correct on the firing pin. Those rim fire caps have to be struck by a firing pin or it won't fire. Pull the head apart and see is the firing pin stuck or missing.

Our Brad nailer model SB-1842BN is well oiled but it will shoot the brads just a little into wood or not at all. Help!!


Can u adjust the drive depth on the tip of the gun? My nailers all have a knob to adjust the drive depth. Also, what pressure are you using? I typically shoot mine between 90 and 120 psi. Hope this helps.

Firing Pin doesn't return


The piston is returned to its firing position by air from the trigger valve after the piston has fired. It relys on the piston sealing against the bumper at the bottom of its stroke, if the bumper was damaged when the driver shattered or it was put in upside down the piston will not return. Also the piston uses air fed into the return chamber from the little holes in the cylinder, if the seal over these holes is damaged the piston may not return. Basically change the bumper and the check seal on the cylinder.

The following is Wisner's rendition & info on the subject.
The difference in the old firing pin and the new one is as follows. The old replaced
style, was totally lathe tuned (round). While the new recall style is similar in lathe
turning on the front and back, but in the front midsection it has two flats milled, one
on each side. This makes the center section stronger. Also replaced is the bolt sleeve
lock pin (firing pin guide) which was made to accommodate this different shaped firing
pin
Part number for the new parts are, firing pin =1391ND, bolt sleeve locking pin =1491ND
The word was at the time this recall was in process was that if the firing pin would
break at the mid section and still remain in the gun as two pieces, the possibility of a
premature discharge before the bolt was locked was possible. This apparently was caused
by the firing pin tip (now not having a retracting spring) to be stuck forward, and
thereby slam-firing upon chambering.
The responsibility for the recall apparently was on Olin, as they were the parent company
at time of manufacture. Olin set up regional recall centers at three established US
gunshops. There was a manufacturing delay in the replacement firing pins, and a backlog
occurred, also some collectors did not like the idea of shipping their guns long
distances. Olin then also authorized other gunshops to make the required alterations.
Upon completion of the recall, the shops were to test fire the firearm and to stamp an
assigned letter on the inside top of the receiver as seen thru the magazine well with the
bolt retracted. The letter “B” represented Bolsa Gunsmithing, “L” was Lefever, and “N”
was for Nu-line Guns. The letter “X” apparently was for all the other independent shops.
However this identification information did not get communicated to some of the smaller
shops at the start of the project. The only way to tell if the gun as been modified, if
the ”letter” is not present, is to take the barrel & action out of the stock, remove the
trigger guard assembly and the try to rotate the firing pin by twisting it. If it does
NOT rotate, then the firing pin recall HAS been performed.
