I've used this nailer for a number of projects and it's been excellent.

Case in point - crown molding.
It's light, which makes it a lot easier to hold over your head while nailing off crown molding all day. The belt hook is also key if you need two hands to get the crown seated in just the right position before fastening it while you're on a ladder.

After the install is done, you'll appreciate the clean countersink hole that this nailer leaves. Some nailers leave a little lip, or an extra dent that takes extra sanding and filling work to hide. This gun just leaves a clean-edged hole and the no-mar tip works perfectly. The only time the tip can be a disadvantage is nailing into some tightly curved profiles. You have to be careful that the tip isn't preventing the nose of the gun from being pressed fully against the work piece. (Then the nail may not be driven all the way in and countersunk.)

No problems using the Porter Cable angled nails that you find at local stores.

Loading was really slick once I found the little tab that helps to hold the nail pusher out of the way.

My two gripes -

1. They didn't include a quick disconnect air fitting and the diameter of the fitting is a bit larger than most nailers sold at the mega-stores.

2. The included bottle of pneumatic tool oil doesn't seal well and can leak inside the case if you store it on its side.

I bought this nailer after my Dewalt failed after only 1.5 years with minimal use and after my positive experience with the purchase of the Milwaukee 7120-21 roofing nailer. So far this nailer has worked great and I like that it includes a 5 year warranty. The fit and feel are similar to the Dewalt and the depth adjustment is in a better location, the selectable trigger is also a nice feature. As for the reliabilty only time will tell but if it performs as well as the Milwaukee 7120-21 roofing nailer has for me then I will be very satisfied.

I found this to be a quality nailer. Good range on depth adjustment. Easy to load and open slide allows you see clearly see remaining nail supply. I have not experienced any jams after shooting over 100 nail sleeves of various sizes. The tool is light weight and comfortable to hold. The ability to direct the air exhaust and the belt hook are nice features. I was surprised that the tool did not come with a male hose fitting. Overall a great value.

Typical Milwuakee Tool quality. The nailer is well balanced and well constructed with a magnesium body. I have noticed the Milwaukee nailers are very similar in design to the Ridgid nailers. If you like the swivel air fittings that the Ridgid brand units are fitted with, you can install them as they are readily available. Milwaukee nailers do not come with air fittings pre-installed. Milwaukee does provide a good quality hard case with the unit however.

This was my first pneumatic tool purchase and (as a beginner) I found the 7140-21 very easy to load and use. Quality and durability are important to me so I was willing to spend a little more. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another Milwaukee tool in the future.

I purchased this nailer after having bad luck with other angled finish nailers, so I approached using the Milwaukee 7140 with some trepidation. But I needn't have. Right out of the box it performed flawlessly in installing hardwood flooring and in the asociated trim work. It is light in weight and very nicely balanced. I think its the best of it's kind on the market. I recommend it highly

I love this gun!! I have use the bostitch and the porter cable finish guns and i found this one to be the lightest and the easist to use The quality is everything that you would expect from Milwaukee. The trigger switch is sweet and the depth is simple to set. The belt clip is a great addition for when your climbing ladders. I would refer to anyone in the field.

Easy to load, easy to use, lightweight yet rugged and durable so far after 60 days of use. I have yet to have a jam. I haven't quite figured out the depth setting on the tool, but so far I've made changes using air pressure. I've been driving into 150 year old hemlock without a hint of sluggishness!

I was pleased when this arrived in that it came with the case. Solid construction, not heavy, and it works like a charm. I only need this for occasional work, not everyday. It's more than what I need so this will last me for years. I think I'm partial to Milwaukee products now.
