I had the same problem with my Stanley stape gun. Had to replace all the seals and piston. Works find now! Check-out internet ...search for a rebuild kit for your model of gun. Get the complete rebuilding kit ....take about 1/2 hour to rebuild.

SOURCE: nail gun- double feed
Nail guns either have a switch or a seperate trigger assembly for two options - automatic, or 'bump' fire, and sequential fire. Sequential firing may be best for you since the nose must be fully depressed and the trigger pulled for each nail.
If you're stuck with bump firing, practice your technique. Double fires often occur when the workpiece bounces back into the nose of the gun; learn to 'bounce' the gun off the material to avoid this second contact.
If you're getting double fires in sequential mode, the problem could be more serious. I keep a can of aerosol silicone lubricant on hand to clean and lubricate the feed mechanism and magazine. Make sure your tool is clean and lubricated before each use, including the 3-5 drops on the air coupling.
Check that your air pressure is not set too high. Overdriving nails reduces their effectiveness and can cause tool malfunction.
This problem could also be caused by worn out O-rings or other parts within the tool. If you're not comfortable servicing the tool yourself, take it in for repair/maintenance work.
Another important thing to remember: With tools like this, you get what you pay for. A cheap nailgun will never function as well as a quality nailgun.

You have one or more worn o-rings in the head of the gun. They direct the air to the proper parts of the gun to first drive the nail then to return the driver to the top of the gun for the next nail. Depending on the manufacturer and your model number, some companies make kits to replace the o-rings (always replace all of them). For some companies you have to get a breakdown of the gun and order each o-ring seperately.

Miss fire usually occurs when piston/driver is bent, piston oring worn, lower bumper cracked or missing pieces or upper bumper is cracked. Easy to check. Remove head and pull piston. If bent try to adjust, but be careful, blade breaks easily. Piston should fit snugly in cylinder, if loose, replace piston oring. If oring/plastic ring ok examine lower bumper for cracks and replace as needed. If lower bumper ok, pull out headvalve and examine upper bumper for cracks. If upper bumper ok, pull cylinder and look for loose check band around cylinder. Check band is black rubber and should be placed around cylinder fitting snuggly covering series of holes. Replace parts as needed and lube with silicone paste sold at Lowes in the plumbing department (or white grease). Good luck

Stop using it and take it in for service. If it is leaking air then an o-ring or seal may have failed (most likely guess) and it needs to be replaced.
