Re: nail would not shoot out
The problem that you describe is caused when the driver is not returning all the way back up to the top of the cylinder not allowing the nails to enter into position . You may have one of several problems including worn piston oring, bent driver, worn check valve, worn lower bumper, or low air pressure. Simple test is to manually push the driver blade back to top using a thin piece of metal that fits into bottom of gun. Be sure to disconnect from air supply when doing this. Good Luck

ok, so your nails are correct size gauge, and the right length too?? sometimes when shooting at 120psi into pine the nail is blown through the material. test it on something first something thinner that you can see if its working at all, or put in like 5 nails and see after you shoot if you still have 5 nails in the magazine.
if so make sure, nothing is obstructing the magazine chute to the driver, also make sure the nails are in the correct slot for them to be struck. keep me posted.
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.
You should not need to lube the rails for the nails to feed. Your nailer uses plastic collated nails and should travel very easily inside the rails. I would remove all the nails and check for broken pieces of plastic from nail strips. Feeder should feel snug within rails and not wobble and spring should pull tight. When you install the nails do not release feeder against the nails with force as this could break the plastic strips and cause jam. Nail not feeding is usually caused by wrong nails, weak pusher spring or pusher guides broken /missing. Simple test for proper nails.
Place a strip of nails on the outside of the rails aligned with the edge of the rails and see if the first nail is perfectly aligned with the path of the driver. If the head of the first nail is angled back slightly from the path of the driver, the nails will not feed properly. Good luck.
Bostitch nailers have two triggers available. Black trigger is rapid fire while the gray is single shot. Both triggers are usefull depending on type of work. Most people say that there is a degree of accuracy with single shot allowing for better placement of nail. If speed is your goal then use the black trigger to bump fire. More information and parts can be found at www.bostitch.com , look for "Support" tab, then "service / parts " find your model number from the pull-down list and search for the manual and parts list for needs. Good luck on your projects.
if u are right nails for gun,then make sure when u put coil in and feed in front of firing pin the nails are straight with pin and connecting wires are not bent causing nails to fall out of alingnment.
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.
