That nail gun was probably sold only in Europe. You may not be able to get repairs here if needed.

Metabo is hitachi
A holding company has been building hitachi for a few years. Now their rights to use the name has expired, they switched the name to metabo. Same product, same factory. HANDYMAN magazine had a paragraph or two about it several months ago.

Metabo is hitachi
A holding company

- Pixxture

Partially correct. The US based holding company owns them both. They are called KKR. Hatachi had purchased Metabo, and shortly thereafter got gobbled themselves. Just another of many tool companies being owned by non tool producing companies. Usually equals junkier tools for us, all made in Asia.

When it was a German owned company Metabo, you were talking about fine tools, made with pride. Today, just another name from the past. Porter Cable, DeWalt, Delta, etc etc etc.

I bought one recently, a 15 guage for baseboard in large two story farm house. I’m very pleased with it. You will like the adjustable exhaust feature.
