Porter cable fr350

the nail gun will not shoot a nail out. when i pull the trigger only a very small POOT of air comes out. if someone out there in a galaxy far,far away can give some helpful advice on repairing this major problem i will be ever-so utterly grateful and i'll dance at their next wedding and re-name my ugly dog after them.

Is the driving pin all the way up? When did you oil that thing last?

If the gun jambed and the pin was not pushed back up with a thin screw driver it will just go 'Puuut'

Try that and get back to us.

A lot of times on a roof this happens and it often misfires lodging a nail or partial causing the striker to stick.
