Ill check those out when it comes time for an upgrade.
p.s. The finish gun does jam sometimes, but the brad nailer never has.

Dry wall is screwed where the trim is installed----so , hitting a screw and jamming your gun will happen----It's just a matter of time before you hit one----

If you jury rig the safety, the very first time you shoot a nail into your leg because the repair failed, or worse- you had disabled and overrode the safety and thought you would just be "carefull" you WILL regret it big time!
If you happen to accidentally shoot a nail into a helper or friend's leg or worse, you will get sued.
Get rid of it and buy a new one if the part to fix it right are not available.

On the other comments about brad and nail guns used at work without a safety, I would think OSHA regulations would come into play there, if as my foreman said- the fine for not locking down a rolling scaffold's legs into the casters with the pin is something like $2500 per wheel, I would imagine a nail gun without a safety, that a light accidental bump on the trigger could send a nail shooting like a bullet into another worker's eye would carry at least as much of a fine and worse.
About 6 years ago, there was a carpenter trimming out a house and was carrying the trim and holding the 18ga nail gun. Somehow, a freak accident happened and he was shot with the gun into the heart. The guy lived after surgery. The site was shutdown by the GC and they made sure they were OSHA compliant before OSHA got there.
Long story short, OSHA looked at the nail gun and saw that the safety was not tampered with and left. Now if the safety was altered, I am sure that there would be hefty fines.
I will never touch a nail gun w/o a safety. Too much liability. All it takes is for the gun to fall and someone could be shot, not to mention if something was damaged.

This is EXACTLY what just happened to me and what I was about to post a question about. Do you happen to have any idea where the spring and spacers are supposed to go? I have them, but I can't for the life of me figure out how they fit. Brand new gun, and I'm not really in a position to just throw the gun out and get a new one.

Oh, boy----I keep a bunch of guns in my truck--I just got another one and never did put that one back together---

I'll see if I can Google up the parts blow up---the spring goes on the safety foot and the spacers between the nose plate and the body of the gun---give me a couple of minutes!!!

Can't figure out what the schematic is trying to tell me about the spring, though, and the spacers are nowhere to be seen on it...

It's a puzzle---

Can you lay out the gun and parts and take a photo?

I'm pretty good at puzzles----without the gun in hand it's hard to remember---

Here's one--not sure if it shows enough or not. I know the plate goes against the body, behind the safety foot bar thing. And the angled pin folds down as you put the nose cover on.

the spacers go into the top holes---I remember that---how the spring goes in is the big question---lay the safety foot and spring next to each other----let's see what works---

Ok, spacers--check. One thing down! The spring is definitely tricky. Not sure if this photo is any better...

Well, thank you for trying! I at least know where those spacers go, now.
