My gr200lcn floor nailer keeps getting nail stuck in it on the first nail filred

Depending on amout of use, driver blades do need to be ground square or replaced to make full contact with the nail head . There could be other factors causing problem however. The nails do need to align with the path of the driver. Make sure that the first nail is directly under the path of the driver. If the nails are not made correctly or the wrong nails are in the gun, the angle of the nails may be preventing full contact of the driver to nail head. Good luck

The gun will fire the first time but will jam when i try to fire it again.

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.

My makita an451 roof nailer keeps shooting 2 nails I've tried 2 different brands of nails

Nailers that use strips of nails (one nail directly behind the other) will sometimes drive two nails at once and is caused by damage to the driver. The nails are so close together that the driver will hit the first and part of the second nail head. Coil nailers, as your an451, use nails seperated by welded wire making it very difficult the the driver to hit the second nail. Usually when a coil nailer shoots two nails, it is acutally the trigger valve that acutates twice (two very rapid fires). Two very rapid fires is caused by faulty trigger valve. I have seen a roofing coil nailer fire one nail and a second nail drops out of the gun. Caused by weak / malfunction of nail feeder or wire used to weld nails together is too thick.

I have a porter cable fr 350 an it says to use 22 degree nails it i have always used 21 degree nails in it will this hurt the gun

There are many different brands of nails sold for your gun. Nail companies try to sell nails to fit as many different guns as possible in one box(will range a few degrees). I have found that the stated angle is not always exact. To determin the best nail for your gun, place a strip of nails on the outside of the rails with top of the strip of nails (nail heads) aligned with rails. Now slide the nails forware to the centerline of the path of the driver. If a perfect fit, the first nail will align with the rails and the path of the driver. Note if the bottom of the nail is ahead of the nail head. If this is the case the driver will not hit squarely on the head of the nail. If the head is in line with the driver but the shaft of the nail angles back toward the rails, the nail may jam against the nose. Use your best judgement when buying nails. If you have not had a jam, keep using the nails, however test the nail as described above for good fit. Good luck

My clipped head nailer does not shoot the new round head nails very well. constant jamming or shooting two nails at once. These are the nails stocked by Home Depot and most lumber yards

This response does not speak directly about your model of nailer, however addresses the problem of the nail supply. Generic nail suppliers are trying to sell us nails that are not exactly a perfect fit for our nailers. Nail guns are made for an exact angle and head of nail. Yet printed on the box of some of the case of nails, I see that the nails contained within will fit a variety of nailers with a variety of angles (+/- several degrees ).
You can choose a good fitting nail by taking a close look at your gun. Take a strip of nails and place them on the outside of the rails/magazine with the first nail perfectly aligned with the path of driver. With the first nail aligned with driver path, the angle of the rest of the strip of nails should align with the rails. If the angle is off slightly could be ok. Now align the strip of nails perfectly with the rails. Notice if the point of the nail or the head reaches the path of the driver blade first.
Recall that the nail should align perfectly with the path of the driver so that the driver blade will hit squarely on the head of the first nail over the shaft of the nail. If the head of the nails is forced away from the centerline of the path of the driver one way or the other, you will not get a solid square hit driving the nail true (think of hitting a nail with a large hand held hammer with an angular blow bending the nail). If the nail head is angled too far towards the path of the driver, the driver can hit two nails (the driver will hit the edge of the second nail of the strip).
The driver is designed so that it will not touch the second nail on the strip (assuming the nails fit perfectly). The driver blade is tapered at the bottom on the side that faces the nails. This taper allows the driver to hit the first nails then gently nudge the rest of the nails back into the rails slightly. To verify the shape of the driver blade, dry fire your gun into soft wood and examine the imprint. The imprint will not be round, but "D" shaped or flat on both sides like some Paslode framers. The flat side of the "D" will face towards the rails.
By using the information here, choose the nails that best fit (align) your gun (measure the angle with a protractor) . The lumber yards do not have a very good selection of brands. Try a professional fastener store that deals in nails and nail gun repair. Good luck

Why do these guns require paper over plastic heal nails.and can these guns inter change nails

The problem is that the nails could jam or misfire. On some plastic strip nails (brands), a piece of the plastic will prevent the nails from moving into proper position and misfire (forceing you to pull the pusher back and release against remaining nails, this sometimes makes the nails bunch-up). No big deal, try using various brands of nails and use the one that works for you. To make sure that the nails will work, place a strip of nails on the outside of the rails and align the first nail to the path of the driver, notice if the remaining nails align with the rails. The nails should enter the rails easily and the pusher should easily move the nails forward (do not let the pusher slam against the nails). Some nails will tend to jam when there are only a few nails left (keep the feeder full). Good luck and let us know what you find that works best.

2 nails shoot at the same time

It could be just from using poorly clipped or collated nails. I have noticed that with some cheaper nails, the clipped heads are not all lined up properly. If a nail has rotated slightly during the collation proccess, the unclipped portion of the nail head protrudes over the previous nail in the clip. This causes the heads of two nails to be struck at once. Another problem I've encountered is collation wire that doesn't shear off with each nail. An ever lengthening strand of wire protrudes into the nail chamber and eventually the driver snags this wire as it drives a nail. This jerks the clip forward forcefully forcing more than one nail into the chamber or causing the next nails in line to rotate slightly, thus exposing the unclipped portion of the nail heads to the driver.

D51844 Won't Fire Nails

The Dewalt D51844 uses a full round head 20 degree nail. Sometimes the generic brand nails are not made exactly to the stated degree. They do this so their nails will work on a variety of nailers. Best to check the nails angle in relation to the angle of your nailer. Place a strip of nails on the outside of the rail. Align the heads of the nails to a convenient straight edge on the rail then check that the head and shaft of the first nail is aligned with the barrel. If the lower part of the nail projects out further than the head, then the driver will miss the head. If the head of the first nail appears close enough to barrell for the driver to hit it then place a new strip of nails into the mag and slide the pusher foward. Fire one nail, if success, remove the nails from the mag and check if the plastic holding the nails together is projecting in front of the first nail. Sometimes the plastic is not right, too stiff, and will not let the next nail align with the barrell. If the next nail appears ready and slides forward then the driver may not be going all the way up after shot. Check by inserting a metal rod into barrell and push driver up till it stops. If the driver is in the uppermost position, then most likely brand of nails. Use Dewalt nail. Good Luck
