Nails vary from brand to brand. I have an older
Hitachi brad nailer and I’ve never had jamming
problems with it using Porter-Cable nails. Yours
is newer though.

You can check the parts the nail travels through
for burrs in the metal. You might try graphite
lubricant on those parts before putting it back

I had the same problem. Clip jammed every time I put in 2 different number of nail clips. Went through 2 different nailers the first was with in the return period the second is sitting in its box under a pile of scraps, switched to the porta cable and never had another problem like that.

Have your say...
