You can try to use connections with bigger holes and a hose of bigger diameter, so you have more air at the gun en less pressuredrop over the hose and connections. try first to fit the gun direct to the compressor and test if it is better.

Miss fires and wont sink nails depth set deep and pressure over 120 psi


If no air is leaking from gun, miss-fire is usually caused by worn or too tight piston oring or lack of lubrication. Easy test. Disconnect airline, remove nails, point nose of gun up then down. Driver should stay in uppermost position. If driver moves up then down within gun replace piston oring and retest. Set pressure to about 100psi. Good luck with repair.

Gun has no air leaks,when you shoot it it sounds like it is nailing but no nail comes out. It is a framing gun,4 yrs. old or so.


hello hunt..... oil it and also check to be sure that the nails you are using are the correct ones for that gun, and that the air pressure is set high enough.

Finally disconnect it from the air supply and manually raise and lower the "hammer" to properly lube it. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Adjusting airpresure


There is nothing on a nailer to adjust the air pressure. You have to do it at the pressure regulator. It is feasable to mount a regulator at the gun but more likely it's on the compressor. Most nail guns are rated for 90 to 120 psi. Set your regulator to hold the hose pressure between 90 and 100 psi. Using higher pressure to set the nail will ruin your nailer. Use the depth adjustment on the gun to set how far the nail is driven.

It is shooting 2 brad nails at a time - is there some type of adjustment?


the first thing that i look at when a gun is double shooting is the nails. if i have the right nails then i check the driver( part of the gun that hits the nail) if the driver is fine( not bent or broken or worn) then your nose( chamber that holds the nail right before being shot out) is worn or broken. either way to answer your question , no , double shooting is not only dangerous but a complete waste of time, ps rate , tks

I have a hitachi nv 65 ah that will shoot two nails at time


I hope this doesn't offend you. What I'm suggesting is that you may not be using your nail gun correctly. Some people keep the trigger pulled and bounce the gun onto the wood. This technique works okay, but placement accuracy of the nail suffers. The other technique is to place the gun on the wood and pull the trigger USING TWO HANDS! This is the technique suggested by the manufacturer. The problem with this technique is that if you apply insufficient pressure to the gun (USING ONE HAND) the safety is not engage so you don't shoot a nail. What usually happens - I just witnessed this a couple of weeks ago - is that not enough pressure is applied while pulling the trigger so you push harder and end up bumping the gun which shoots a nail - because you have the trigger pulled, but the nail shot was a surprise so it causes another bump (and is more apt to bounce because you're using just one hand). Because it is a machine and can operate faster than your reflexes - it shoots another nail. This happens before you can lift it off of the wood, or remove your finger from the trigger. That's the reason I keep the trigger pulled and bounce it. I know that after the bounce I've set a nail, and can remove my finger from the trigger. When I need to accurately set a nail I always use two hands, press hard and pull the trigger, and release quickly. Only pull the trigger when you know you're about to set a nail, and are poised above the workpiece.

Gun shoots one nail then you must disconnect the air and reconnect to shoot another nail. Started this intermitently and got worse. Porter Cable fc 350


The keeper is sticking after the first nail is shot. Once you disconnect the air, the air pressure drops allowing the keeper to drop for the next nail to enter the chamber. Try using airtool oil a little more often, if you are, then you have mechanical issue that will need to be fixed.

After shooting a nail the ram rod stays down not returning to the ready position


1.) Lubricate nail gun
2.) Use correct air pressure. finish nailers 80psi and below. framing nailers 80psi and above.

I use nail guns every day, when the rod doesnt return 90% of the time its lack of lubrication. You should add a drop of air tube lubricate everytime before use.

If that doesnt work the rod may be bent or the seal around it may be worn.

Mastercraft Brad nailer piston always fires damaging finish but nail gets randomly shot. Thought it was a indent before nail shot to indent nail since it mostley shoots nails after second shot but lately...


The dial on the top of the gun is most likely the depth adjustment for the nails, this should solve the driver damaging the work piece. Make sure the nails are the correct guage for the nailer you have.

Nail would not shoot out


The problem that you describe is caused when the driver is not returning all the way back up to the top of the cylinder not allowing the nails to enter into position . You may have one of several problems including worn piston oring, bent driver, worn check valve, worn lower bumper, or low air pressure. Simple test is to manually push the driver blade back to top using a thin piece of metal that fits into bottom of gun. Be sure to disconnect from air supply when doing this. Good Luck
