I am editing this review a year later (14Apr08) with some revisions

I am a professional builder presently building super high end homes on the lakefront of Lake Tahoe. I have used every framing nailer made. Before I bought this nailer I was a Senco and Hitachi user. I needed another nailer so from the recommendation of another carpenter I went with this model. What sold it to me was that I liked the fact that it had another nosepiece that allowed it to be used for nailing hardware.
I have had this nailer for about 5 months now and it has a few problems.
When it was new it would tend to spark a lot when ever a nail was fired. Now that it is broken in it sparks still but much less. Edit.. It no longer sparks.
There was a part missing in the unopened box. I promptly ordered it from Bostich and it came right away. The part was a vinyl rod that adjusts the magazine for varying thickness nails.
The nailer really hammers the nail hard with a loud smack. I worry that it will wear out the hammer driver sooner. The sound with the Hitachi is much quieter and the Hitachi nailer seems to work with much less recoil when sinking a nail.
The trigger on the Bostich is very finicky and will not fire unless you depress the nose "just so" even with the bounce trigger installed. The Hitachi and Senco is an honest trigger that fires every time you depress the nose. Hitachi users say bad words out of frustration when using this nailer because of the finicky trigger.
The rubber pad on the side has a metal part that surrounds it. The metal part is thin and recently it broke. Since a nailer is often left on the side then this weak and flimsy part is in a very vulnerable spot.
The nose has a spring that can easily snag something and fly away.

I'm currently using this sucker to frame my garage. I bought Hitachi plastic collated nails for it. It took me a bit to sort it out, but I was able to find 21 degree full round head nails at Lowes. I've been sticking with the Hitachi nails even though there are cheaper brands - the quality is good.

I used 0.131" diameter 21 degree plastic collated nails, 3 1/4" in length, for all of my framing. I was able to blast a bunch of 2x6's together in no time.

I then used 0.131" diameter 21 degree plastic collated nails, 2 3/4" in length, for all of my sheathing. The nailer handled both of these with ease. I can set the depth so I don't go splintering my OSB with too deep of a punch.

I am currently using the trigger that only allows one shot per pull. I like this feature as I don't go machine-gunning 3 nails on top of one another if I slip during the shot. Sometimes it is a little finicky, as you have to get the tip compressed just-so before you pull the trigger, or it will give you a disappointing "pphhh" and no nail. It also seems to have about a 50% ratio of actually firing the last nail in the clip. A lot of times it misses the last nail altogether. I did jam it once with the 2 3/4 nails because I inserted a partially used clip. The uneven break in the plastic collation misaligned the nail and the piston jammed the nail in the barell. I fixed it with a small screwdriver.

It's pretty light for its size. Some friendly helpers I had with the initial framing all remarked at the size of this thing. It looks big and beefy. You'll have a bit of trouble fitting it between studs that are 16" apart - it's a little bulky in tight spaces. For toe-nailing and mating studs together, I had to shoot at an angle.

This gun is fairly light and replaces 3 other guns. We used one heavy gun for shooting 16d 3-1/2" common nails for structural framing, one for Simpson hangers, and one for shooting regular 0.131 framing nails. This does all of that with an adjustable (no tools) depth gauge! I usually weld a receiver and run a 1/4" bolt in it, that I double nut for a depth gauge.

I am impressed. Somebody thought this one out.

This review is targeted at do it yourselfers of which I am one. I chose the F21PL primarily because it shoots full round head nails. I am a mechanical engineer working for a tier 1 automotive supplier in Michigan. When doing research for a framing nailer the issue of clipped heads not being allowed by building code in different states or cities kept coming up. Unfortunately I will probably have to leave Michigan if I loose my current job, and I don't want to own a clipped head paper weight because the local codes don't allow clipped head nail use. I elected to pay a little more for the Bostitch vs. the Porter Cable because of the 7 year warranty, and because both Home Depot and two other local tool rental places Rented Bostitch even though they sell other brands. All the guns in the rental fleet were really beat up, yet still going strong. HD was able to sell the used ones for $100+. I also saw a program on History Channel where they showed the Bostitch factory. The segment showed either an F21PL or F28WW being dropped 60+ times from 8 feet onto a plywood sheet and then bouncing onto concrete. They also pull a random gun off the line and fire it 1 million times as a quality control check. ( at 5K nails per box that's 200 boxes or maybe 50X my lifetime supply). Another reason for choosing this tool is that it shoots the Bostitch Hurriquake nails. (Overkill perhaps for Michigan, but cool none the less, and they could be required as code if I move.) Finally don't make your buying decision solely on the price of the nailer. The cost of nails is >$50 per box, and you will probably want to get a minimum o 2 boxes ( 3.5" and 2.5") right off the bat. If you plan to build any serious projects, the cumulative cost of nails will exceed the price of the gun.Read more ›
