    Recon Unit came jammed and sandy
    The unit I received came with just the toe-nail tip and a manual. The metal connector tip was not included. The F21PL is stated to included both, it is not an accessory, it is part of the model. This same gun without the extra tip is model F21PL-2. The photos show both, and show the metal connector tip specifically. The unit also did not include any rubber caps for toe-nail tip (these were not expected, but should be noted). The above issue wasn't even the worst, the unit I received came pre-jammed with a nail firmly stuck and deep gouges on front from removal attempts. The sliding of the magazine also sounded like there was sand in it. This unit was clearly not from the manufacturer as a refurb, and was simply used, so I had no choice but to return it. Without a tip (making this model even cheaper), and without the trust of factory refurbishment, buying a new unit on sale (elsewhere) made more sense to me.

    Works great, even came with hook
    Got a great price on this. I prefer how my Porter Cable loads, but this was a great choice for the money. I never had a tool shipped before and this gun was at my door in a few days in perfect condition. I would definitely buy here again.

    Great product to buy.
    I have had nail guns before but never a framing gun. It was very easy to load & really takes the place of using a hammer ever again.

    Worth every penny
    I mainly use this nailer for additons and porches, both as a do-it-yourselfer and occasional side job. The power and versatility is excellent in both framing and attaching metal hangers. The time I saved attaching metal hangers more than paid for the nailer and changing the head from framing to metal connect took 5 seconds.

    New Vs. Reconditioned

    What's the difference between New and Factory-Reconditioned?

    Factory-Reconditioned products have been returned to the manufacturer and are restored to like-new operating condition; they go through a rigorous testing and inspection process. Plus, they offer a significant savings vs. new.
    • Reconditioned products may have minor cosmetic blemishes or scratches that do not affect item performance.
    • Reconditioned products may not come with all of the consumables the new version comes with (bits, sanding pads/papers, cases, etc.).
    • Both come with a manufacturer warranty and are covered by our Money Back Guarantee; New is 30 days, Reconditioned is 60 days.

    Effective December 1, 2005 Bostitch, L.P. warrants to the original retail purchaser that the product purchased is free from defects in material and workmanship, and agrees to repair or replace, at Bostitch's option, any defective Bostitch branded pneumatic stapler or nailer for a period of seven (7) years from date of purchase (one (1) year from the date of purchase for reconditioned pneumatic staplers or nailers and for new and reconditioned compressors and tools used in production applications).

Driver blades, bumpers, o-rings, pistons and piston rings are considered normally wearing parts. For optimal performance of your Bostitch tool always use genuine Bostitch fasteners and replacement parts.

    This warranty IS IN LIEU OF ALL OTHER EXPRESS WARRANTIES AND with respect to compressors and tools used in production applications, limits to a period of one (1) year from the date of purchase all implied warranties INCLUDING, BUT NOT LIMITED TO, IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE.
