When it comes to nail guns you get what you pay for. How much are you going to use it and what kind of wood? Lot of things to think about. Go out and look at them and look for good workman ship for your money! I have harbor freight guns that work well for me. But they don't get used much.

Endless supply of used guns on G-list. Cheap,
Pawn shops also have several makes & models on hand very faily priced.
My opinion is you do not need high priced new, unless your professionally involved in a process.

If you pick up a used one you might want to get a rebuild kit right away. They consist of a couple of o-rings and gaskets. At least look for a gun that you can find rebuild kits for. I haven't seen guns for 10d or larger in electric. Paslode makes one that runs on butane with a spark plug and battery but tends to be expensive.
