Details: Amazon.com With this 2-1/2-inch, 16-gauge finish nailer, Porter-Cable continues to make good on their reputation as one of the top pneumatic toolmakers. The gun’s straight magazine is well thought out, made from aluminum, and top loading. This is a sturdy, compact nailer that shoots a conveniently wide range of 16-gauge nails, from 3/4 to 2-1/2 inches. The nailer has a good balance and a nice, thin grip made of porous rubber. (You don’t have to have the hands of a giant to comfortably operate this gun.) The gun has a nicely designed depth-of-drive adjustment. There’s also a muffled exhaust port, so it’s quieter than a lot of other nailers–plus the exhaust port is adjustable, so you can direct the discharge where you want it. The gun’s also lighter than we’d expected, always a good thing in a tool a lot of us use all day long. –Jon Groebner From the Manufacturer When you look at the success Porter-Cable has had with their original FN series nailer you may wonder why they wanted to improve on it. But once you realize Porter-Cable is never satisfied with just being the best you begin to understand. This new FN250B is a complete redesign from the ground up. This is evident with the slimmed down, smooth body, which shaved almost 2 ounces off the weight of the tool. We didn’t stop there however, we incorporated a Teflon cylinder to reduce drag and increase O-ring life and reengineered the piston bumper to house a piston “catch” to ensure the full stroke of the driver blade will always be utilized. The in-line angle magazine is attached directly to the body housing eliminating the need for a bracket that is prevalent in all other FN nailers. This unique mounting system eliminates out-of-aligned magazines due to dropping or misuse. The tapered magazine provides more clearance for installing crown moldings or nailing in tight spaces. With the ability to shoot all 16 gauge finish nails ranging from 3/4-inch to 2-1/2-inch without the use of a nail guide, the applications for this gun are endless. A built-in depth-of-drive adjustment with 8 detents allows consistent countersinking of each nail regardless of wood type. The exhaust port is muffled to keep noise to a minimum and is adjustable to direct air away from the operator without the need of tools. A non-marring tip protects delicate projects but can be removed when more visibility or tip clearance is needed. The quick-release nosepiece allows quick clearing of jammed nails when hidden obstructions like drywall nails or nail plates are hit. The standard restrictive-fire trigger provides more safety and the carrying case ensures nails, safety glasses and oil are always on hand. Includes nailer, carrying case, pack of 1,000 finish nails, 1/4-inch coupler plug with dust cap, oil, Allen wrenches, and operator’s manual.
