Powerful and Accurate Nail Delivery
Amazingly powerful, the RN46-1 is capable of delivering 410 in./lbs. of force at 100 psi. And with the ability to drive up to 100 nails per minute, the RN46-1 offers two firing methods: contact trip and sequential trip. Contact trip uses a bouncing motion along the workpiece and is great for working on large areas, such as roofs. Sequential trip firing is for precision applications, such as finish work. For shingle work, the RN46-1 features an integrated, tool-less gauge used to control shingle spacing.

Sequential trip firing is for precision applications, such as finish work. For shingle work, the RN46-1 features an integrated, tool-less gauge used to control shingle spacing.

Get the Right Depth for the Job
The RN46-1 allows for fast, tool-less depth-of-drive adjustments with its integrated depth dial. The dial has five different settings for finding the perfect driving depth for the job, including flush mount driving, shallow driving, and countersinking.

High-Capacity, Quick-Load Magazine Reduces Downtime
To help eliminate downtime, the RN46-1 has a high-capacity magazine that holds up to 120 coil nails. It accepts nails with a shank diameter of 0.120 and a length of 3/4 inch to 1-3/4 inch.

A zero nail lock-out feature eliminates dry firing when the magazine is empty, and it also indicates when it is time to reload. What's more, a patented single-action side-load canister allows for quick and easy nail loading. You simply slide the magazine door open, load the new coil of nails, and close the magazine door--it's that easy.

Designed for Comfort and Durability
The RN46-1 Coil Roofing Nailer is constructed of tough magnesium for durability on the jobsite. What's more, magnesium is lightweight, so this nailer is easy on your arms.

The nosepiece features a carbide insert for durability and long tool life, while wear guards and skid pads provide protection from damage caused by working on abrasive surfaces.

The over-molded grip provides maximum comfort and gripping ability in any weather condition. That means this roofing nailer can be used for a variety of different applications--inside and out--including exterior drywall, vapor barrier installation, vinyl siding, fiber cement siding, composition roofing, and more.

The Bostitch RN46-1 Coil Roofing Nailer measures 10-1/2 x 4-5/8 x 10-5/8 inches (LxWxH) and weighs 4.8 pounds. It is backed by a seven-year limited warranty.

Just finished laying 42 sq with this gun, and I have nothing but praise. Well balanced and one of the lightest guns I have ever used. In 42 sq, one jam and about dozen nails left proud. Standard home store nails work very well in this gun and are easy and cheap to find. The tool-less depth of drive works just fine and the side-loading feature is great, very fast and easy. When it is out of nails, you know it, it will stop firing.

Yes, this is a contact "bump" nailer, and if you are getting double and triple misfires, you are using this gun WRONG. If you are laying shingles all day long and you have to pull the trigger on every nail, your finger will fall off. Put your shingle down, pull the trigger, and shoot four nails, next. That is the beauty of a contact nailer. On that note, BE CAREFULL, after a long run out, your finger has a tendency to stay on the trigger, if you were to then bump any part of your body at this point, you too will get nailed.

The Cons: Superficial really, come on Bostitch (and other mfg's), Give us a cheap plastic molded case for our expensive tools and would it have been so hard to have installed an air nipple at the factory, save me a trip to the hardware store.

I'm really surprised with the first review of this gun. I had a buddy buy one, it gave him problems, he exchanged it the next day and his second gun has been flawless. I chalk it up to it being a new product on the market and to some of the initial guns having production glitches.
As for my experiences with it? I was considering the Hitachi Ultra-Light intially. I had been waiting for Bostitch to produce the rumored "lighter" gun too. Just before I went to get the Hitachi (which I kind of put off for a while because I heard that they just did'nt take a beating like their heavier standard guns did), the Bostitch finally came out and I got it. After over 20 years of roofing, I managed to do something I have'nt done in a long time. I surprised myself. I actually laid out shingles even faster than I normally do. I was going through coils so quickly that I thought my helper was'nt bringing me up what I needed. It's amazing even for a seasoned roofer, this gun is just balanced so rightly. I had the model before this one (the RN45B-1) and still do. It too is a workhorse and bulletproof. As with any tool, keep it clean and it'll run forever.
I believe it is the 2nd lightest gun on the market (behind the Hitachi), but I'll give up that extra pound of weight for performance anyday. It's fast and it keeps up with me. It also makes it easy to place the nails in the proper nailing area on the shingle (anybody can be fast, but being fast and placing the nails where they belong distinguishes a roofer). I had no problems with my other Bostitch; I just wanted the newest gun on the market and I'm happy I got it. I highly reccomend it. In one run, I knocked out 4 squares with a 30 foot valley to contend with in 23 minutes and did'nt even realize it. It's that quick.

Verified Purchase
I looked at this gun based on the journal of light constuction reviews I read july 06 issue. They liked the last nail capture feature and I must admit that this was my only complaint with my porter cable gun. So I bought one localy (same price as amazon with a case so it made up for the tax) and have done 3 roofs of about 20 squares each and really like it. I have seen lots of fusing on here about this and that but I muat say that if a tool was giving me this much fuse I would bring it in and see what the repair shop says. When I have had problems in the past our local reapir shop was able to get us a new gun, drill, or exstend our warranty with factory approval. I guess the second question is how much do you beat on your tools?...I tether not only my ladders and my self but my espensive tools too....nothing screws with a gun more than a three story drop. Well enough rambling...for the money an excellent gun...I still use my porter cable for a spare gun when we have an extra guy on the roof so I can't really bad mouth them...but if your banging out 5 or 6 squares a day by yourself 30 plus coils with our 12 pitch roof you appreciate the nail capture, easy load, and weight of this gun.

update: after a year this gun needed a rebuild because the nailes stopped advancing...and we bought the new portable cable while waiting for it to came back from the shop...we still prefer the Bos for its features but I will say the porter cables are more durable ....

My boss has 5-6 Hitachi roofing guns and I always thought they worked fine; didn't have to pound down hardly any nails. Then for a side job, part of my compensation was a new roofing nailer. In asking around everyone said to either go with Hitachi or Bostitch. Having already been using the Hitachi's I decided to try the Bostitch. What an awesome roofing nailer!! Blows the Hitachi's away. The single door side load canister is far easier and faster to load than the Hitachi's 2-door canister (side load for the nail feed, bottom load for the coil). Also I work in Minnesota and when the temp dropped to single digits every one of the Hitachi's started dry firing constantly and I ended up going and grabbing the Bostitch, which hasn't dry fired once (I would rather not have to use my own tools on my employers jobs, but the Hitachi's are junk in cold weather- they work fine when the weather is warmer)
