Question about Stanley Bostitch Bt200 Brad Nailer Rebuild Kit Nail Gun

1 Answer

I have a Bostitch BT200 that is dry firing. It seems that the "hammer" is not retracting after it fires a nail. I have to push it back manually and even then it seems to dry fire a few times before a nail gets shot. Please let me know how to repair this problem. Thanks.

The check seal is what causes the piston to retract. Remove cylinder and examine check seal. It is a small band that covers a series of holes and should fit snuggly around cylinder. Other factors that have effect on piston retraction are, split/cracked cylinder, bent driver and lack of lubrication. This gun is tricky to rebuild. Make shure that all the parts in the head are placed correctly. The kit does contain all the parts that you need. Good luck

My bostitch bt1855 nail gun worked fine, until it started to dry fire 2inch nails. No problem with firing quarter inch nails. Any ideas?


Have you serviced it recently? and is the gas in date? The pistons do dry out and have to be oiled with special oil.

Bt200 only exhausts


Here is a parts diagram. You may want to remove the four, top allen screws and pull off the head. Turn it upside down and with your thumbs push on the head valve assembly (items 9 and 10) and make sure it goes up and down freely. It is spring loaded (item 8). If it gets stuck it will blow air out the exhaust. Also a bad seal between it and the cylinder will cause the same thing.

When reinstalling the head assembly I push down from the middle of the head as evenly as possible to compress the head valve without cocking it and having it stick. I then hold the head with one hand while putting the screws back in with another. I use t handle allen wrenches. Also always lightly grease (or coat with air tool oil) any new o-rings you install. You don't want to run them dry. I use a tub of white lithium grease because I do so many. If you knew this already I apologize but it may help others that read this.

My bostitch N88RH is not firing nails


May occur when headvalve or driver is stuck (will usually make a pop or click when tigger is depressed), or tigger valve has failed or safety not actually touching trigger firing pin. Easy test, remove nails, remove trigger by pushing out 3mm roll pin or bolt to expose the firing pin. Pull back nail feeder and place the nose against piece of wood ~ depress trigger with very quick motion with finger. If it fires, reinstall trigger and adjust safety foot so that the firing pin is pushed all the way in. If does not fire, replace trigger valve (usually tva6) or remove trigger valve and replace the 3 orings on the inner plunger. If you hear a pop or click when you do test above, remove head and lube the headvalve orings with white grease or silicone paste.

Going strickly by what you said above, it sounds like you put it away 'dry'. If you are not going to use a nail gun for an extended period of time you should lube it well with pneumatic gun oil and fire a couple nails to distribute it throughout the gun. When you take it out of storage, put a little more pneumatic gun oil in it and fire some nails to get it well lubed again and blow out any excess oil. WD-40 is OK on the exterior of the gun as long as you blow off any excess after spraying it on; never use it inside the gun. The problems you are experiencing now are indicative of broken or damaged o-rings inside the head. Some of the o-rings act as seals and some act as valves. There is also a rubber bumper at the bottom of the cylinder. When the driver hits the bumper it is pushed back up by the rebound off the bumper and assisted by air pressure. If one or more of the o-rings are damaged the air isn't directed to the proper place to make these things happen. Bostitch makes a rebuild kit for your gun. It's part number RN-46RK. You can find them on several on-line after market sites and should cost around $30 to $35. Use all of the parts in the kit and you'll have a gun as good as new.

I have Bostitch RN45 coil nailer. It sometimes does not feed nails. When I open the magazine the driver blade has not retracted. Gun does not leak, o-rings in drive section look to be in good shape and...


Causes of piston not retracting are as follows. Cracked /worn bumper, if cracked air will leak between piston and bumper. Try test, remove nails and dry fire gun against rubber or soft wood; depress trigger push gun against wood/rubber and hold in this position. Piston should stay down and no air should leak past nose. Worn piston oring, piston should not slide down cylinder under its own weight. Loose or missing check seal, remove cylinder and look for black rubber band around series of holes. Band should be in place and fit snuggly. Good luck

My bostitch bt200 recently will not shoot 2 inch nails, it seems to be to tight inside the holder


I have a bostich that takes only the "ay" nails, the "ax" nails won't fit and I think there is one other size, all wire gauge sizes, the "ay" are the smallest. Check it out.

N80CB - Coil Framing Nailer firing plunger stuck


There is a number of reasons that this will happen. Is the driver (plunger) physically stuck? Take a small screw driver and see if it can manually be pushed back. It may also be a broken head valve spring, or a stuck head valve (you have to remove the rear cap to get to these parts) Maybe this unit just needs an O-ring kit. Try these things and let me know
