Question about Air Tools & Compressors
Did you make sure that the angle of the nails match the angle of the gun? I agree to check the hammer of the gun.

Always make sure # 1) Your holder, springs and nails are CLEAN. 2) some nails (esp stick nails) can get corroded and or dis configured. By this I mean rusty or bent. 3) take your gun for a check up!

Assuming that the gun will not jam with nails removed and the driver returns to top of cylinder when fired without nails. If the driver is bent the nailer will jam without nails. Jamming is usualy caused by bent driver, driver tip worn (not square), or wrong nails. If the driver is not bent and the tip is square, suspect wrong nails. Easy test. Place a strip of nails on outside of rails with the nail heads aligned with top of rail. Move the strip of nails toward the nose if gun. With the heads aligned with the top of the rail, the first nail should align with the path of the driver. If the first nail does not align with the path of the driver and the head is angled slightly away from the path of the driver, the driver may strike the shaft of the first nail pushing the nails back into the rails. If the head of the first nail is forward with the nail shaft angled back away, the nail will flip causing jam. The first nail should align with the path of the driver to prevent jam. It is difficult to find perfectly made nails that align correctly. But certainly check the nails with test mentioned above with every new box for accuracy. You might find that you will need to change brands to get a good fit. Good luck.

SOURCE: My Makita AF 505 brad
I would try different brads for it, dont use anything generic, sometimes the glue that bonds the brads will jam up gun
