Senco FinishPro41XP for Crown Molding

Is the Senco FinishPro41XP 15 gauge a good nailer. Will be using it for crown molding. I can get one for around $130. This is a model supersceded by the FinishPro42XP. Thanks.

Senco makes good products. Can't speak about specific models.

My most trusted guns are Senco(made in U.S.A,)

I don't have any real world experience with the made in China ones.

I know some people with Porter Cable guns,They seem it hold up well.

I am sure the Senco will hold up well for you. Sounds like a fair price,too.--MIKE--

Again, Thank You.

Just_Bill, and Oh_Mike. Based on what you and other folk here had to offer, and what I read several places, I shoulbe more than happy with this. I wanted an air gun for over a year, and seriously started looking at them a month back. I was told and probably correctly that I would be happy with a Porter Cable 16 gauge and pancake pressor unit that sometimes went for $199, but kept wondering if I would sometimes wish I had a 15. Ended up getting a little oil lubricated pressor from Sears and what appears to be a quality 15 gauge for $11 more than the 16/pancake. What is funny is the gun doesn't come with an npt fitting, as many do, bu most are fixed and I would probably throw it away and buy a swivel to lessent wrist strain. Just like I wll upgrade the hose.

I feel llike a kid with an early Xmas present.

Now to practice coping and nailing.

My wife is already starting to ready the trimmings for tomorrow. I hope all have a Happy Thanksgiving, especially tbose with family and friends in service. I just learned from one of my son's oldest buddies, now in the Corp, that they aren't getting combat pay in Iraq because there are/nt enough casualities!

Those of you in the northerly regions stay warm and I hope all have much to be thankful for.
