  • Nailgun smell?

    Shooting on some siding today and smell an odor like a discharged firearm. Ive smelled this before from other guns but wondering exactly what this means. Ive owned my hitatchi 15 gauge nailer for about two years or so and it doesn't get a whole lot of use. I added some oil but not much of a change. Any advice or point me towards some information would be much appreciated

    Do not know if I have ever smelled a nail gun smell other than the Paslodes that use the gas cartridges. I suppose it could be the oil but I do not have a good sniffer according to my wife.

      Only guess I'd have is sometimes there's travel or something in the striking action that makes a spark. Can make a cordite type smell. Seeing sparks?
