I don't think I've ever posted a deal here... But saw this for $100 and picked one up. It's usually priced at ~$140 or so. The 18 gauge is also pretty cheap right now at $68

Just watch their return policy. 20% restocking fee... and they'll make you jump thru hoops if the tool isnt working properly to waive the 20%. I would avoid this company at all costs (I know they are the TTI outlet site, but they have crappy policies.)

To be fair, they are very upfront about their return policies: https://www.directtoolsoutlet.com...urn-policy

Such restrictive policies would make me think twice about ordering from them online, however I would seriously consider making an in-store purchase as some of their prices are pretty dang good. https://www.directtoolsoutlet.com/locations/

I recently bought the 16 gauge nailer. It wasn't sinking nails very well and they exchanged it for me without hesitation, without any cost to me. Good to know they have a fee if you simply try to return it though.

I did the same and also had similiar issues. They would only waive the restocking fee if I got on a call with Ryobi Tech support and tested the unit with them on the 3-way call to "verify" that it wasnt working.
A-holes. Like i have time Monday-Friday 8-5 EST to diagnose a known issue with these 16g tools with ryobi AND Direct tools customer support.

My other recourse was to pay the 20% vig and pay for shipping back.

I wouldnt buy socks from this company.

I got a brad nailer from them last time and it was working great, so I'm trying my luck with the 15 gauge nailer this time.

I have this nailer. It's a great product for the cost. I can't speak to this distributor but as far as the tool:

Pros are it shoots cleanly, doesn't require any power cells or compressors, will shoot about 700 nails on the One+ high capacity battery, has a nice "semi auto" setting, and it's very simple to un jam it if a nail gets stuck.

Cons are it is heavy. All ryobi tools are heavier than the more expensive models, but this is a fine addition to your set. At 100 bucks I'd call this a steal, just be prepared to take rests from time to time if you're installing crown as the weight will get to you.

I have installed about 300 linear feet of base floor trim, similar in crown molding, and installed wainscoting around an entire bedroom with this gun. My father is a contractor and even he was impressed, though he remarked multiple times about its weight. I have used this extensively, and can say without a doubt if you have been considering it, and you already have some of the ryobi tools and batteries (and therefore know the type of products they are) you'll be happy with this. Brand new this was around 200 and may still be.

So I had noticed this deal a day or so ago.Took me a while to figure out what "Certified" means, I think it is basically customer return cleaned up and validated it works. What gives me pause is this is supposedly a decent nailer, no known issues. So why the returns? Well, I'm guessing it is the result of a lot of dirtbags who like to use Home Depot as a free tool rental. They "buy" something for a specific job, knowing they are going to return it when finished. So they use and abuse it and back to the store it goes. I hate folks that do this, and it is common....go to Costco and you will almost always see someone returning a power washer (used and opened) or go to Tractor Supply about 2 weeks after a storm and look at all the returned chainsaws. I know folks rationalize it that these are big companies that have lots of money, but this ultimately ends up costing us regular honest consumers more money.Luckily, I went into HD yesterday and they were had new ones on clearance for $150 (Down from $229 originally, and it was just $189 a few days ago) and I went that route. The 15 gauge is supposedly way superior to the 16 gauge (which was sill $199).As a side note, not sure if they still have it, but if you are looking for a decent one and are not already committed to a rechargeable battery ecosystem, they had certified rigid nailers on sale for $50 on this same site (but you will have to go out and get a battery and charger still).
