Here are a few tips on buying nails for your nailer. Nails are sold in two basic categories, clip head and full round head. The clip head are lower in price and are usually taped on glued together with no spacing between them. The full round head have spacing between each nail and are held together with plastic. Some nailguns can use both types. It is important to verify the angle of your gun. To measure the exact angle use a straitedge along length of rails and a protractor at the barrel of the gun. Place the protractor on the barrel with the 90 and 0 degrees aligned with the barrel and hold the straitedge aligned with the rails and the 0 degree mark. Read the angle. You may find that your gun measures a different angle. Nails are sold from 0 to 34 degree. 34 degree is usually clip head for Paslode, Senco, Hitachi and other brands. I find that many brands of nails do not list the angle, but list the name of the gun instead. This makes it difficult for non-branded guns. Take the protractor into the store and measure the angle of the nails or place the nails on the outside of the rails to see if they align with the barrel. Shop several stores because nails vary by brand. Once you verify the perfect fit, ask for a sample strip to try in your gun. When you identify the angle and type, use this information to shop for price. Most nails are imported from around the world, however there are nails still produced in the US costing more. Home Depot and Lowes do not carry a full range of nails.
=Google the internet for more info on nails such as www.nailzone.com. They sell a 33 degree nail that may fit your gun. Good luck and email me or post again with more questions.

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.

Make sure that when you run with one gun that your psi is between 90-110. You may need a kit. Is it an RN45 or 46? Go to Stanley Bostitch online and look up parts and schematics. Kits should only be about 15-20 dollars, easy to put in, and come with instructions. Lemme know. Please rate me

I worked at at tool rental center while attending college and learned from the old tool masters about nails and nailers. Rental stores have many different brands of nailers to rent and customers would bring their own nails of all brands. You will notice on the case/box that your nails will /should work on many other brands however the degree or angle of the nails is not always exacly as stated on the box. You should check with protractor the exact angle of your nails and also check the exact angle of the nailer. Use straight edge on travel path of the piston and another on guide rails to check angle of the gun. You will discover that all is not as stated as in a perfect world. If the angle is off slightly, the head of the second nail will get into the path of the driver. This happens mostly with clip head because the nail heads are so close together. The full round head is spaced further apart with less jamming. If angle is off slightly, take a look at other brands of nails with protractor in hand, the angle will be different slightly or choose a slightly thicker nail. Look for the nails to fit with bottom of nail hitting the barrel first. This will move the head of the nail slightly away from the center line. Finally do not release pusher with force as this will jamb nails closer together. Good Luck!?

I don't have a lot to go on here. Can you describe what does happen? Is there any release of air at all? You can try checking the o-rings for leaks. There are o=ring kits available for under $20 that contain all of the o-rings. Also, proper lubrication is required for operation. If the main plunger chamber does not have enough lubrication, the plunger won't move properly and not set the nail.
Please update this with any details you can.
