I'm actually on my second unit, the first was destroyed by one of my guys who apparently didn't clear a jam properly. I've only ever had it jam one time in my own hand after maybe 6-7K shots, and it only jammed because of a screw behind the molding. But when this thing jams, wow is it a hell of a jam.
If the jam occurs with a brad partially through the nose and the hammer did not retract - DO NOT pull the jammed brad out with a pair of pliers. Because the hammer itself is semi-exposed, yanking on the jammed screw will likely tweak it and it takes an EXTREME amount of force to pull it out (the one time it happened to me the nail was curled up inside and outside). This is what it looks like one of my guys did as evidenced by the gouging in the metal portion of the magazine, unfortunately whatever he did managed to destroy the internals of the driver portion as well.
Instead take the included hex key out of the included pencil sharpener/belt hook and disassemble the head. After I cleared the jam the hammer did not automatically retract like on other nailers I've used. Hesitantly I put everything back together, connected the hose and dry fired it and the hammer resumed normal operation (warning I do not know for sure if this is the "correct" way to return the hammer to it's normal operating position).
Seriously though this unit practically never jams, especially compared to some other brad nailers I've used, it's a great unit and I highly recommend it. On the odd chance it does jam, show it some love and don't just start yanking at it.
Other great features include rear muffled exhaust, oil free operation to prevent staining fine finish work, swivel air hose fitting, belt hook with pencil sharpener(sounds hoakey, but actually quite useful), light weight magnesium body, easy side-load nail clip, any dry-fire feature won't let you fire unless brads are in gun, low-nail indicater, opening in magazine to see length of fasteners being used. Great product that will not dissapoint.
Don't buy the air compressor kit with three guns - they are not the same models. Guns appear much cheaper and magazine is not nearly as easy to open to load nails. The kit guns are cheap junk. The 1855k is a quaility tool. Price is great.
Always wear eye protection regardless. You can never be too safe with a tool like this. Its a pain in the ass but man will you regret it when you lose an eye. These nailers seem well made to me; the cases are robust and sturdy with space to store nails. The pencil sharpener I use frequently and works very well. I considered the passload cordless nailer; however for less $ I was able to purchase two bostitch nailers and all the nails I need for a year of projects and I'm happy with my choice. This is a light weight tool for its size and preformance. The adjustable depth of nail does work ok; I'd say on average there is about a 3-4mm difference in depth of drive from max in to max out. This varies greatly with the material being used; Example; I was driving 1" 18 guage nails into African Padouk for a cabinet frame and with the depth guage set to drive as deep as possible; pushing hard the nails would drive 3/4 hp husky compressor maxed out at 100 psi and the nails would go about 90-95% of the way to flush. Nail set required to finish off.
