Bostitch N88RH-2MCN Framing System
Why have two nail guns when you only need one? That's the question that fuels the design of this interesting gun from Bostitch. The N88RH-2MCN plays double duty as both a stick nailer and a metal connector nailer. The way it works is that the gun comes with two different tips, so all you have to do is change from one to the other and you've got the dual functionality. According to Bostitch, changing tips just takes seconds (don't forget to change the nails too).
The gun comes with all of the standard features of a high-quality framer; adjustable exhaust, toe-nailing grip, depth control, rubber grip. It's also worth noting that the metal connector tip is self centering. All in all, it looks like a nice tool, but being a big, bulky framing nailer, we wonder how easy it is going to be to wedge it into tight joist bays to nail off the hangers.
The metal connector tip is also available as a stand alone and can be retro-fitted to any Bostitch N88RH nailer.
The gun seems to retail for around $170 or so and the tip by itself is about $40.
