SOURCE: Nailer jams with 1-5/8 brads
It sound to me that the 1 5/8 brads are not 18 guage but probably 16 guage and they will not work. Double check them first before going any further. You can usually lay them next to the smaller ones that work and see the size difference, if not let me know and I will dig deeper.

not too familiar with makita brand nailers but jams are usually caused by cheap nails but I see you have tried senco brand which is a good brand sounds like a mfg defect try using hitachi brand nailers they are good

it sounds like the piston/driver might be stuck or the firing valve is malfunctioning. there are 4 screws to remove the top cap and you can see if the driver is damaged. Also before removing check to make sure there is not a nail jammed in the nose assembly. This tool is good for breaking the pin on the piston.

Yes, BUT the paslode Round drive nails and known to cause driver jamms due to the excessive paper used in the spacing of the nails.

the 601 had a design flaw, in the nose, where the nails hit as the are being pushed forward, the peice was made out of a peice of metal that was too soft, it wore down and that is where you get the double nail problem.
Senco offered a trade in, this was years ago, for a limited time and gave us credit towards new guns, which we gladly did
