These are straight, not angled like the battery guns use. Otherwise almost half price compared to home Depot

Are these only useful for attaching trim and molding? Or can they be used for other things as well?

Is it just me that never uses the 2-½" finish nails in 16ga? I have 3 cartons of Bostich that's collecting dust. Lol.

I always see the 2-½'s in stores that look like they've been there since they were bulk purchased for Y2K. 🤣 🤣

I usually go 15ga with the 2-½" and up.

If I go to 16ga, I usually do <2", or just do brad nails.

CCC shows these stay between $13 and $16 on Amazon. Thanks for post, but I'll pass on this one. HD might be a good YMMV deal, but idk.

I got a clearanced Craftman V20 16ga finish nailer. I love the portability so I use it for a lot. We'll see if some of my applications stand the test of time, but when that time comes...I'll probably pop a few more 16ga finishing nails in there. LMAO

I've literally bought 25-30 of these 2500 packs of 2 1/2 for $8.98 on Amazon. I use them in my Ryobi 18v finish nailers.

Yeah, a cordless nailer is one of the greatest tools ever made.

The craftsman isn't bad. I use the Dewalt, (but I use them more than most people) and really, the craftsman is just a slightly lower tier Dewalt. So for DIY, home projects, etc, the craftsman should last you quite a while.

But, when the day comes that you have to change the non-marring tip, have a few Xanax on hand 🤣 🤣 it can be aggravating for a lot of new users.

Is this just for attaching molding and trim? Do they have other uses as well

I guess you could. 16 gauge drives a fairly decent sized nail that will leave an easily seen hole. I prefer an 18 gauge for most trim, or even a 23 gauge pinner for things like shoe molding. You have to be careful with the 23 because it drives a very thin piece of wire that doesn't always want to go where you point it. A knot in the wood can change its direction.

I just ordered a The Ryobi 16ga 18v nailer from DTO. I'm planning on replacing some baseboards. Are these what I need?

This matches the highest price Amazon has sold them for since June of last year. Why is this a deal?

Not for load bearing applications. If non load bearing, then these along with wood glue is fine.

.
Since you apparently purchased the P325 straight nailer and not an angled, then yes these will fit. Unless you have a lot of material like lathe and plaster before solid wood, 2" is easier on the gun than using it's maximum capabilities of 2-1/2". Add up the total to solid wood. If 1/2" ranch baseboard, 1/2" drywall, a 2" nail is 1" into solid wood and plenty. If 3/4" baseboard, 1/2" drywall, then this 2 -1/2" is going to be the choice that you can use on either.

Sure, a 15ga would be nicer for longer nails, but what you have will work. Any concerns, use a bead of Liquid Nails or the construction adhesive of your choice.

The 1-1/4" [amazon.com] and the 1-1/2" [amazon.com] are both $8.99, but not finding a deal on Amazon for the 2". Do know that these are for interior use, as they are electroplated and not galvanized that will have a "G" at the end of the model number. The Dewalt are a softer nail than some of the others, but don't have any trouble with softwoods.
