Not bad for the price
I bought this nailer because the price was good. The first time I used it was to frame in a closet for a customer. I used 3 1/4" nails. WOW! This gun has a kick. Not only did it drive the nails quite well it actually counter sunk most of them. The little plastic tip (it is used to reduce scratching or marring) came off after just 3 nails. No sense in even having it on. The gun itself is relatively light and easy to handle. When my freinds come to help out on a job they all want to use it. For the money this nail gun is great! I wolud recommend it .

Poor choice
For a short time it worked well and then it started only shooting 1 out of about every 7 nails. We've sent it in to be repaired 3 different times and it still doesn't work. So much for buying extended warranties. We gave up and bought a Bostick which is working very well. This was the second Craftsman framing nailer that we had purchased. We haven't had much better luck with the smaller nailers that we purchased either.

Mine was a dud!

I can't recommend this tool.  The picture on the box and on the manual clearly shows the air fitting installed.  Mine didn't come with one.  Right out of the box, it only drives a nail about 50% of the time.  The other half of the time, the drive pin doesn't retract and it doesn't pick up the next nail.  When you run out of nails it continues to dry fire, which, according to the manual, is hard on the tool.  

Most other brands I've used come with the air fitting, drive every nail and stop firing when you're out of nails.  

I'm returning this one.

Sometimes, sometimes not.

I purchased a Craftsman Framing Nailer to work on my fencing project over a year ago.  The magnesum material for the housing helps keep the weight down, especially for over-head work or lugging this around.  The body is durable even if bumped or banged around a little bit.   My model is the "aluminum" color and not the black finish, but it is the same construction and features.

I found my Craftsman Nailer isn't always so fond of the nails with plastic straps.  I've used sizes from 2 1/2 up to 3 1/2 inches in this gun.  Sometimes, but not always, the plastic would jam up in the nailer shoot / guide.  The hammer would jam or end up sliding past the nail and just impacting the wood.  I would make sure the nail gun had a few drops of lubricant every time I would start up so I'm pretty sure that wasn't the issue.  This occurs on the hot weather days, so maybe cooler times would make things easier.  I would simply clear out the plastic pieces or nail stuck in the guide.   I would get a double bounce or have the nail shoot out of the side of the protective rubber bumper at times.  It is easy enough to clear out, but a pain when it acts up.

I haven't tried anything else in this nailer other than the Craftsman brand.  Nothing else has been available in my area that meets the right angle or requirements.  I am glad Sears has several choices for length, but I don't see other coatings (galvanized, etc.) or paper straps being offered. 

I really had to crank up the pressure and striking strength on the nailer to get the 3 1/2"  nails to be fully seated. I was applying these to either 2x4s or 4x4s (Pressure Treated) and couldn't always get them in but that was more a problem with the wood and the nailer and not the nails, I assume.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

I have used this nailer for a variety of building projects and it seems to be doing just fine. The price is good and the quality lives up to the craftsman name.

I would recommend this product to a friend.

The Magazine Nail follower is made of plastic and breaks very easily where the pin goes through it if care is not taken when releasing the follower.

I would recommend this product to a friend.
