Makita AN611, Coil Nailer
While all coil nailers are similar, Makita has put a couple of features on this one that makes it stand out. The first thing that caught my eye was the see-through magazine. That allows you the ability to constantly be aware of the number of nails left before reloading. While others have a window, this is a whole lot better. It also has a stepped depth adjustment knob, featuring nine incremental steps of 1/16-inch each. The gun has a three position trigger control switch, with bump fire, sequential fire and a lock mode to keep it from firing. The unit weighs 5 pounds; not the lightest on our list, but almost. An inline air filter minimizes damage to the tool and extends its service life.
