I've had this problem with a few other nail guns, i just got a common screwdriver and needle-nose pliers and worked it til it came out. if you don't want to do that, then you'll have to take the guide apart and take it out.

My new Bostitch bt200 was working fine until it started curling the nails. They went into the wood slightly & then curled around out the top of the board

A close inspection around the outlet area may reveal a piece on "nail-head", or other fragment causing the new nails to lean slightly. There could even be an entire smaller nail crammed into the area just forward of the nail exit (or just to the side). If I were you I'd get it in bright light, where I can sit and take my time, and with magnifying glasses (unless you have 20-20) use a small tool and inspect closely.

I have had this happen to me and I thought, "well there's not all that much place to hide"... And I didn't see it the first time I looked. But sure enough, there was an entire nail lodged in there in such a way that I thought it was part of the nail gun the first time! Good luck.

Oh, give it a liberal oiling while your at it.

I have a Bostitch BT200 that is dry firing. It seems that the "hammer" is not retracting after it fires a nail. I have to push it back manually and even then it seems to dry fire a few times before a nail...

The check seal is what causes the piston to retract. Remove cylinder and examine check seal. It is a small band that covers a series of holes and should fit snuggly around cylinder. Other factors that have effect on piston retraction are, split/cracked cylinder, bent driver and lack of lubrication. This gun is tricky to rebuild. Make shure that all the parts in the head are placed correctly. The kit does contain all the parts that you need. Good luck

Bostitch Nail Gun wont release and shoot nail

I had purchased a bostitch bt200 and am just now trying to use and after loading the nails 18ga 2" brads made by bostitch connecting to a small compresor that had 20 psi I pushed the nailer flush with the board and pulled the trigger and had no nails ejected. Is there something else I needed to do, manual was read.

Nail is jammed in my Bostitch power finish nailer and partially sticking out. When pull on nail with pliers, it won't come out.

Remove driver guide nose peice, should be a couple of alan screws, remove nail, check driver to make sure it is not bent, re assemble. Make sure you are using the correct Nails!

My bostitch bt200 recently will not shoot 2 inch nails, it seems to be to tight inside the holder

I have a bostich that takes only the "ay" nails, the "ax" nails won't fit and I think there is one other size, all wire gauge sizes, the "ay" are the smallest. Check it out.

My very slightly used BT200 jams every 50 nails. You take it apart with the very handy allan key and then it jams again after 50 or so. This is a pain and the local service centre told me it was because...

I would check the pusher spring on the magazine asssembly to ensure it keeps constant pressure on the nails, if they are running out it won;t push them tight and could cause the jam, also look at the driver to make sure not bent or the end worn excessively, the 3 screws as long as they are tight should not be a problem.

I have a bostitch SB 16 finish nailer that has a rack of nails stuck in th loading barrel. I need to take the barrel apart to get them out, How do I do this?

The solution provided is harder then it needs to be. Where the nail gun handle attachs to the nail magazine there are 2 bolts. Remove these bolts and the nail magazine slides right out and you can get to the jammed nail. It still took some effort on my part to get the nail out but this was a lot easier then removing the 4 bolts previously suggested.

How do you safely remove jammed nail gun?

Not sure exactly what Bostitch framer model you have, but if it is powered by compressed air, as long as you remove the air hose from the nail gun, there should be no risk of the nail gun firing while you remove the jammed nail. There should be a way to access the driver area from the top of the nail gun, even via a latch or a couple screws. Remove the top part of the driver area and that should give you access to the jammed nail, which you can remove. Use long nose pliers or something similar if the nails are really stuck.
