I would check first for the proper guage nails that you bought and then what is the capacity of the tool. You didn't specify the model number but I would think one or the other. then also check for the wood being nailed into. All could lead to your problem.

Nail feeder on this gun is both air and spring controlled. Air pressure retracts the feeder and a strong spring pushes the feeder back to front. Remove nails and leave side door open. Dry fire gun very rapidly against thick rubber pad and watch the feeder retract and return. It should move very rapidly all the way back and front again. If it appears to move slower than piston is moving then follow next step. Pull the feeder back manually with tip of screwdriver. It should be very hard to overcome spring. If spring feels strong then suspect feedpiston oring or air supply to feedpiston chamber is restricted with debris from inside of the gun housing or air is leaking where body of gun mates with lower nose. There is a small white oring that seals between body and nose base. Sometimes this oring will be over-compressed thus restricting air flow into feed chamber. Remove two allen screws at front of base to split body from base and reveal this oring. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com. Good holidays

On the trigger of my Bostich Spiral load nail gun AND my Bostick trim nail gun air is leaking profusely from the trigger. Nail guns were not in use for about a year. When I first used them this weekend,...


A nail gun works on compressed air.
When you hook the air hose to the gun it fills a cylinder with air pressure.
When you pull the trigger. the cylinder pressure is released onto a firing pin that shoots the nail.
The air pressure line is also connected to the trigger and therefore the trigger has to be sealed.

When ever using a nail gun, you add a bit of gun oil in the back of the gun (not 3-in-1motor oil, it has to be non-detergent gun oil)

If you haven't used the gun in a while, it is best to oil up the gun and let the oil run down into the gun.
If you use anything but gun oil, the seals will give out.

Your trigger seal has given out. It is probably an 'O' ring. You can access it by taking it apart. Look for the O ring.
Bostich makes re-build kits for the different guns that you can buy on-line.
Back when I was in construction, there were several nail gun shops that sold and serviced nail guns, and sold nails to the contractors. I don't know if that business model is still active or if you have to send the guns to Bostich service center.

Open the front and clear any jammed nails that are there. Oil the gun, push the drive pin back in if it didn't go back in when the front was off and try again. If there are repeated nail jam issues, try genuine Bostich nails.

The o-rings need to be replaced and/or the trigger assembly is defective. Look around at local lumber yards for a "Bostich days" promotion. Often with the purchase of a box of nails, the Bostich rep will "service" up to 2 guns for free. If this is not an option for you because of time, you can purchase the o-ring kit and replace the rings yourself. This is not a difficult repair. Also, be sure to lubricate the guns with pneumatic oil frequently as this will keep the rings lubtricated and prevent them from drying out and leaking.

Hope this helps,

Dan
