Why is my bostitch nail gun leaking air?

If you try to fire a pneumatic nail gun or stapler, but only hear air leaking when engaging the trigger, it’s likely that your tool’s “O-Ring” is not sealing properly. Simply stretch the “O-Ring” on the firing valve and apply grease. This should take care of the issue – helping your air tool run properly.

Why are my brad nails not going in all the way?

If your nailer isn’t sinking nails deep enough, check the driver, o-ring, seal, bumper, springs, oil, trigger valve, and piston ring. The seals seal in the compressed air and stop it from leaking from the tool. If you hear air leaking from the top cap it could be a bad seal.
