SOURCE: nail gun will not shoot
Not all 120psi air supplies are the same. Here are some differences. The pressure regulator has a great deal of effect on the performance of the air tool. Regulators are sold by the volume of air (cfm)that they can handle. The more cfm the larger the pipe fittings on the regulator. A 1/4 fitting regulator will restrict the air somewhat compared to a 3/8. Another difference is weather moisture is present in the air. Moisture will temporarily help seal the orings, however too much water in gun will cut the orings. The air hose and fittings will also stifle performance. Long small diameter hose will lower pressure at the gun. This can be measured by installing a guage on a T fitting on the end of the hose and watch the pressure as you fire the gun. Larger fittings and hose ID will improve performance. Finally, your nail gun should work on both compressors. To make your nailgun work at home, (assuming that there are no air leaks) lube the headvalve parts with silicone grease. (sold at lowes in plumbing dept) For best performance, replace the orings in the head valve, examine the plastic parts where the orings contact and look for wear and tiny scratches (use magnify lense). Replace these worn parts along with orings. Replace the head gasket and make sure that the body and the head-cap are not warped. Place sheet of fine sandpaper on flat surface, with cylinder removed rub the body of the gun on paper a few times to check for warp. Do same with cap. Parts are available at www.toolpartsdirect.com.

is that a model AF505? if it is, your problem may be the gauge. make sure you use 18 gauge nails, he 16 gauge are too big and will jam in the gun.

Hi there .
First check if the nail gun have a adjustment screw . Depending on the brand could be in the front where the nails comes out or by the trigger. Second check the compressor by the air hose connection you should have a regulator valve with a gauge and see if you getting the right air pressure .
Hope this help

Yes your problem right about lubericatoin try putting lite oil in it hopefuly you didn,t taer one of the seals but if you did just standard o rings and you can get them at a hardware store and the gun is easy to rebuild
