1" Pin Nailer
This 23 ga. micro pin nailer shoots pins from 1/2" to 1" long. The tool automatically adjusts for different fastener lengths for easier loading and less problems with pins that are out of spec. The convenient bottom-load magazine holds 170 micro pin nails. A low nail reload indicator allows you to see when re-loading will be needed. The tool is shipped from the factory with a dual trigger actuation system. The secondary trigger must be depressed in order to depress the primary trigger. Each time the primary trigger is depressed the tool will fire a fastener. A rubber grip on tool handle and a rear exhaust port that channels the air and tool oil/condensation away from user add to user comfort. Made in Taiwan.

Comments about Porter-Cable 23 GA. Pinner:
Most of the time Porter Cable produces good tools, but this time they fell a bit short. The nailer works but it doesn't drive the pin below the surface of the wood, instead, it is just at the surface. Also the safety trigger mechanism is very awkward and if I can figure out a way to take it off, I will.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

About Me Avid Do-It-Yourselfer
The nailer is small and maneuverable for an air tool. Everything worked out of the box. I have had no jams. The nails are virtually invisible when installed correctly. The nailer wood not drive a 1 3/8 nail (headless nail) through a 3/4" piece of red oak into oak plywood without leaving the head proud. I had the pressure set to 100 PSI which is the max for this tool. I switch to 1" nails and the heads were below the surface of the wood just barely. Therefore, I would call this a 1" nailed NOT a 1 3/8" nailer.I would only recommend this tool if you need a 1" nailer not a 1 3/8 nailer.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
