I can't imagine it's the same exact model number, but I got a combo pack with this Husky 18 gauge brad nailer and 23 gauge pin nailer 5 or 6 years ago for around $50 or $60. As another user mentioned in an earlier post, this is great for quarter round or smaller trim pieces. We renovated our old house top to bottom and I used this for the 2nd half of it with no issues at all. In our new fixer-upper, I just finished a whole room's worth of picture frame moulding and quarter round with this after it sat for about a year and a half, and it's still running flawlessly.

Easy to load, adjust depth, clean. I run it at about 80 - 85 PSI and have only ever had a few nails not countersink properly over the years, likely from hitting more dense material. Additionally, I've never had a single jam.

I use a Dewalt 16 gauge nailer for baseboard moulding and larger trim, and follow it up quickly with this nailer for finish work, and it's saved me countless hours over the years compared to how I learned - with finishing nails, a hammer, and nail set.

Overall, I got it because it was cheap enough that if it broke after a few uses I wouldn't be devastated, but it has proven to be a go-to over time. If you're in the market, $30 is a no brainer for this in my eyes.

HF one is cheaper, but doesn't come with any fasteners... hmm. which is the better option?
Got my HF for $18 and used to put in hundreds of brad nails during a project with zero problems.

I have the 18 GA nailer/stapler from HF [harborfreight.com]one and I don't like it too much because it dents/divots on basebaords and end hardwood pieces. Would this do a better job or should I look elsewhere. Also, is it worth it to pay for the angled ones?

Thanks in advance.
You're using the wrong tool for the job. You need a finish nailer, not a brad nailer.

This is a good deal No doubt. But ever since I bought my Ryobi cordless aitstrike I have never looked back. Works really great for 18 gauge brads on everything I've tried it on. The freedom of no hose is just amazing. For those who want a good functional tool without having to invest in a compressor, and especially if you already have some Ryobi tools and batteries, I think the cordless route might be a better option.

Brickseek killing me.
Went to 2 locations near work, one showing 20 on hand, and none could be found. Even had 2 employees look for them.
Shows an odd location in store (endcap 2)
Just ordered it online for customer pickup at a Home Depot close to my house and got a notification within 5 minutes it was in a locker ready for pickup. figures
Took me and motivated employee about 30 minutes to find a rolling toolbox at Lowe's Brickseek said they had three in stock. We did finally find them way up high behinds some other boxes.

Good reviews, it will be nice to have one to keep in the shop. Not expecting too much at this price
These are extremely simple tools to manufacture. You should expect to get years and years out of this. I still have my original 18G brad nailer from HF I bought over 20 years ago. I've used it tons over the years.

Hard to get used to the hesitation after pulling the trigger before the brad shoots? Also those are really big and heavy compared to this little nailer. Any issues?

seems identical to the HF one. HF can be had for much cheaper with the 20% coupon. For reference, brad nails are roughly $3-$5 for a couple thousand depending on size.

My local Home Depot showed 12 in stock at the $29 price so I ordered one. A short time later I get a call from a guy at Home Depot. He says that he can't find any and offers to sell me a Porter Cable one for $20, so I say sure, why not. I just picked it up, and sure enough, I git a Porter Cable for $20.

There's a depth adjustment on the nose of the gun, start there. If that doesn't help then turn down the air pressure. These things aren't ready to go out of the box because there's too many variables (nail type, wood density). Play around with the settings and it'll work fine.

May be a dumb question. Will this work directly out of the box if I need to nail Quarterrounds in my house?
You can use this with an air compressor, however you don't need to use a brad nailer. Just make your cuts and use some Titebond adhesive. Even though brad nails leave very small holes, using Titebond eliminates them completely so no need to putty or paint to get it looking nice.

Crown molding is the only thing that drives me crazy. I just cant get it right and always wind up buying those pre made inside and outside corners at home depot.
