Prolly clogged; get a rebuild kit and use it making sure all parts are totally clean and free from clogs before reassembly. in the future drain your compressor after each days use (more often on humid/wet days, i.e. at lunchtime) to avoid this problem

Stevens model 311a,where is the serial number. I can not find one.


All the Stevens factory guns made from 1948 till the passage of the Gun Control Act (requiring serial numbers) had a date code roughly stamped on the center bottom of the action either just in front of the trigger guard or just behind the hinge. The stamp is a letter for the year and a number for the month of manufacture, stamped inside of a circle or oval. "A" represents 1948 and each succeeding alphabet letter represents the next year. "O" and "Q" were not used.

I don't know what the letter codes on the action flats mean. The 311A is a model number; there were several letters used with the number 311 to identify the various small changes in the gun over the many years of production..

I own a Remington 742 rifle , serial " 229608 . I want to know the facts or history of this gun .


Ricky, here is a link to the history of the Remington 742:
http://www.remingtonsociety.com/rsa/journals/Model_74N

This paragraph has the most pertinent information:

"The Model 742 serial number sequence was changed on November 26, 1968 as a result of the 1968 Gun Control Act that required no two guns from the same manufacturer have the same serial number. The initial Model 742 serial number sequence began at 1001 and ended at 396562. The new serial number sequence, now shared with the Model 760 pump-action rifle, began at 6900000"

Gun is full of nails, but acts like it is empty (the plunger won't advance). You go to tap it with the trigger pulled, and it just does nothing. Seems like firing pin is not getting air or somet


If no air is leaking from the gun, take out the nails, remove trigger by removing 3mm hex head bolt to expose the trigger pin. With air connected and side door open so that you can see the feeder, quickly depress the trigger pin with finger. Gun should fire. If gun does not fire (only makes air sound at trigger) dissconnect airline, remove head and lube headvalve with white grease and reinstall. Test again. If ok replace trigger. If still no joy, replace trigger valve with new factory or generic (part # TVA6). If gun fires but does not activate the feeder claw, remove two 6mm hex bolts from front of gun and split apart upper and lower body and check white oring (part # 149885) Good luck

I have a NR90AE . It's been used about 8 hours. It suddenly would not work at all when I pulled the trigger. The compressor seems fine. This is the first air nailer Iv'e owned and know nothing...


Over time the orings within the nailer will dry out causing problems. Adding oil thru the air inlet will not get oil to all the orings. If the gun had been in storage, add a few drops of oil into air inlet and spray silicone (or teflon) spray lube into air discharge opening at the top of the gun (it is difficult for oil to get into the head from air inlet). Before you connect the air, remove the nails and make sure that the drive piston is at top of cylinder. You can verify by inserting long metal tool (slightly larger in diameter than nail shaft) into nose of the gun and tapping firmly. This will move the piston up against the headvalve and hopefully reset it and allow oil the lube orings. If the headvalve is stuck, gun will not fire. Make sure that the safety foot is depressing the firing pin at trigger valve all the way in. Retest gun for proper action. If still no joy, remove the head and lube orings with silicone paste lube(silicone past has better sealing action but dries out over time). Good luck

Inconsistent velocity, and my velocity adjuster doesn't seem to be working


This is caused when a gun needs cleaning and-or O-rings are worn.
Tear down the gun and clean the lube with the special paintball gun oils
and reassemble. See if it is better. CO2 is terrible for paintball guns.
Go with HPA (High Pressure Air, aka Nitrogen) and this will help.

Spraying paint instead of air for the first action


Make sure the needle is pushed completely up against the tip. You will possibly have to take the back handle off to adjust it. (I am not familiar with this paint gun specifically). Make sure you do not force the needle into the tip, gentley push it until it stops.
I hope this helps.

Staple gun support


Know the types of staple guns available. They can be manual, electric, battery operated or run by compressed air with an air compressor. Some staple guns have guide wires because they’re used by electricians that can’t pierce wires. Others have long noses to work well in corners and tight spaces. There’s also a reverse built ergonomic staple gun called a "forward action" because the handle and the staple’s exit point are on the same end of the staple gun. Some staple guns can shoot brads instead of staples. Know how each type of staple gun works. This one is so simple because it works just like a stapler. You press and hold the silver latch on the back of the stapler to open the body. Take the tray out and fill it with staples. Then it’s ready to use. Just put the staple ejecting end on your piece to be stapled and squeeze it. There is also the forward action manual gun which is used by pushing the handle down, too. The handle is just located near the staple ejection site. Use an electric staple gun for effortless stapling. There’s no need to squeeze or apply any pressure on these guns. They come with a very short cord so you will always need to have an extension cord with your staple gun. You can also go with a rechargeable battery operated cordless staple gun. They are great but they do run out of steam so for long use one with a cord is better. They’re also pretty easy on the wallet these days, so there’s no reason to go without this in your home tool kit as it’s something that does a lot of jobs. Know the versatility of the staple gun. Whether you have a manual or an electric model, these are some of the most versatile tools out there. You can use them to recover furniture, to build a birdhouse, to staple lattice to a patio, to build lightweight projects like a small knick knack shelf and to do wiring work.
