framing gun- round, clipped head nails


I am looking at buying a framing gun (air powered),....not asking which is better, but rather will a round head gun shoot clipped head nails and vice versa??? Seems kinda silly if they don't.... Thanks

Full head guns will not shoot clipped head nails. Clipped guns will shoot the new full head nails that are designed for the clip head guns.

I've got a clip head Porter Cable--I've been shooting the new full head nails for about a year,with no issues.---Mike--

(Just a thought; What ever gun you choose,make sure nails are easily available.)

Some areas will no longer allow clipped head framing nails to be used in construction.
