21º Plastic Collated Full-Head Framing Nails
A 'plastic collated nail' just means that the nails are held together with a thin strip of plastic. They are great for DIY projects because there are no issues with glue or sharp pieces of metal flying around when you're working. We suggest you use 21º nails for the best performance, but the PFR2190 can use any nail from 20º - 22º. The magazine fits nails from 2" to 3-1/2" long and is compatible with any generic brand, which is perfect if you have nails left over from other projects! If you don't have any leftover nails, we've listed some fasteners here that have worked for our customers in the past.

connected this up to a basic pancake compressor, cranked up to 90psi, and this baby has been banging in full size framing nails with no issues at all. I've not had top adjust the depth setting, as 90psi drives the max nails. For toe-nailing you do need to remove the soft wood protector cover, which is an easy task. If the nailer is not in a safe driving position, it just releases air informing you that full driving is not possible.
I've only used it in single-fire mode, and it's got all the firepower I, or other novice to high, DIY'er needs. Then for those who are professional, or less risk averse, you can swap the trigger (as an amateur, I thought this was a great safety feature), and put the gun into full auto mode.
As this is my first framing gun, I have nothing to compare with, but it is much lighter than the Hitachi I initially rented. It also has moveable exhaust so you can direct it away from your face.
Overall i think this is superb from DIY and professionals alike.
Pros: The weight reduces the kick back, but rest assured, its got a lot of punch! It feels very well made, and I have yet to have a misfire, even though I have framed out 2 entire rooms already.
Cons: When you get down to 3 nails in the magazine, it requires you to add more. This is a safety feature so you don't fire it without nails in it. Its not a big deal, just a little frustrating. I also wish the magazine would hold more nails. When your framing up a wall, keep the nails close by. You'll go through them pretty quickly. Other little item. While the weight is great for reducing kick back, its a bit cumbersome when your up on the ladder. I wish it had some sort of hook I could attached it to a ladder rung or tool belt.
Summery: Overall, fantastic nail gun, especially for the price. Just remember to add a few drops of oil per the instruction manual and ALWAYS wear safety glasses.
There are a couple of design faults that I don't really like, but can live with. First, I was surprised to see a trigger hanging off a tie strap when I picked up the gun. Confused I look through the book (which was hard to find, tucked into a slot in the case) and found out if you want to go to bump fire you need to change the trigger. Very unhandy. The Porter Cable I had been using just had a lever and my Paslode cordless didn't have any, it was always bump fire. I don't like bump fire on air guns anyways because they have a lot of recoil and can be very dangerous, and once you are used to it you don't really need bump fire anyways. The 2nd thing I liked much better on the Porter Cable was the way the nails loaded. Its not bad on this gun, and similar to what most guns do, but the PC design seems so much more practical when you get used to it. On the PC you just slip the nails in, pull the spring back and release and it snaps right up against them. On this gun you have to pull the spring back and lock it, insert the nails (which go in a slot in the top, not the back, which isn't as easy as they have to go in just right), and then release the spring catch to let it go back up. Just an extra, unneeded step.
I didn't ding it any stars just because of the price, but if I had it to do over again I might just get the Porter Cable refurbished. Its about the same price, but to get the PC with magnesium housing was much more, and the reurb didn't have a case (and I really like fitted cases for my tools, it takes much better care of them). I do think the weight is some better with this gun, even though its really large.
As far as comparing it to my Paslode cordless I have come to like air better. No fuel to buy, air uses full head, heavier gauge nails that do make a difference, and 22 degree nails are much more standard and often cheaper. Every cordless I have ever used works great sometimes, and sometimes they seem to loose power when they are either hot or the fuel gets cold. I actually like to have an air hose sometimes, it keeps the tool from sliding around, and a week ago I was using the PC on a 28' ladder, left it on top to run down and get something and it fell and the hose stopped it before it hit me. I know, I know.... but we all do stupid stuff like that from time to time!
4 1/2 stars
After using it more in the field I haven't much else to say. It has been very reliable and never jammed. Its pretty big and hard to lug around, but that's to be expected. I set it to drive just below flush and its very consistent. One thing I did notice is it comes with a really high gloss paint, not the best choice for something that gets banged up as bad as a nail gun does! Would buy again.
The fit and finish is, as with all other Freeman nailers, awesome. I was actually hesitant to drag it around in fear of scratching up finish. Can't tell if it's powder coated or not but it seems like a pretty durable finish. The movable exhaust plate is a nice touch as well. The included case is HUGE but does give a couple little niches to keep some accessories. The handle is pretty comfortable.
Like others have stated it fill fail to fire when you are down to the last 2 or 3 nails but that's not that big of a deal really. I had one jam but that was more due to the nail clip.
For the money, this is a strong product.
