I had assumed that the SnapOn gun was used for 53.00.

A story about SnapOn, I went to an auction with my Dad about 7-8 years ago and we got there a little after it started. They were auctioning off a SnapOn 1/2" flex ratchet. I quit bidding at 90.00 because I already had one. It went for 95.00 and then I learned that a complete set of deep and shallow sockets and three extensions went with it.

Their other nailers go for prices similar to Senco or Porter Cable, Hitachi etc. but I can't find any reviews on any of them and I'm not sure I have much faith in Alltrade tools so... I think this might be a case where Craftsmen tools are actually better
craftsmen does the same with there power tools, there worm drive power saw is manufactured by skill ans Sears just puts there name on it. the skill brand costs less. if you see what you want try and find which manufacture built the tool and buy that brand it will be less. just my 2 cnts. BOB

I agree with Bob craftsmen used to make pretty good tools but even their hand tools are from Taiwan now.So do as he said and try to find out just who made it.I do have a couple of skill power tools I did some caparisons before I bought them and I am pretty happy with them for the price
