This sounds like one of the O-rings has failed. Yes it can be fixed. Check to see if HD has an O-ring kit for these guns. That kit will contain all of the O-rings as well as the lubricants for a total rebuild. That should resolve your problem.

Your nailer uses a trigger valve (part # tva6 cost about $20) and is sold at www.bostitch.com or generic valves sold on ebay . If you have a source for orings, you could try to repair the valve. Remove the roll pin that holds the trigger to expose the tva6 valve. There are roll pin/pins that hold the valve in just above the valve in the body. Remove these pins and apply air pressure to gun to pop-out the valve. Use caution when you do this. Remove nails, lower pressure to gun and use glove or rag to catch valve because it could come out with force. With tva6 valve in hand remove two pins that hold valve together and remove inner plunger. The middle oring on plunger is cause of leak. Try using an oring about same size as the broken seat. It must fit pretty tight to work. If you had a small leak it could be that the firing pin orings fit too loose or just too worn. Use silicone lube or oring lube on the orings and the valve port. Good holidays.

Travel of driver blade /striker is controlled by lower bumper. Remove driver blade and cylinder to examine the bumper. It should be complete not cracking or chipped. If worn replace to solve problem. If it looks to be in good condition, add thin piece of rubber under the bumper to space driver out a bit. Use piece of inner tube or similar and make small hole to pass the driver blade. Other solution would be to actualy grind the end of the driver a bit. Good luck

Sb504000 works just fine with pressure range from 60 to 120 psi depending on material. Any small compressor will work great. Using the gun at max pressure will shorten the life of the gun. Best practice is to set pressure to just under 100psi for most work and increase pressure when nailing hard wood. Using at max pressure will strain the driver and the lower part of gun (screws that hold nose to body). Some hard woods will bend an 18 gauge nail. Good luck with your gun and have fun with your projects.
