    sometimes the simplest solutions are the last to think about....are you using the right gauge brads? You probably are,.... just a thought

      What do you mean by misfire? Pull the trigger and nothing happens, nailer fires but brad jams, nailer double fires?
      I decided to change calling the bathroom the "John" and renamed it the "Jim". I feel so much better saying I went to the Jim this morning.

        Try putting oil through it firing a few brads, and repeat a couple of times firing lots of brads. Two of my nailers did the same thing right out of the box. I did this and it got everything moving the way it's supposed to, never a misfire since. Keep a rag handy, it will be messy.
        Good Luck. Walker1
