Shouldn't matter, they are "pre-oiled" from the factory. you should be able to shoot some nails, even if you didn't oil it. Are you new to air nailers? My guess is you aren't holding gun flat and with two hands, and the nails are simply jamming. One jams, others log jam behind it. if you just bought it, don't monkey with it, take it back and exchange, if you have same problem, you'll know it's operator error

Well, I finally bought the kit yesterday

Well, sort of. I owe my sister some cash now

Would have picked up the framing nailer but home depot was out of them along with pretty much all other framing nailers. Now I just got to find a project so I can make use of this kit while I save some cash to pay my sister back and save up for the framing nail gun.

project ideas?

My father has that same kit but I have been "borrowing" it since I bought my house last year. It has been great for everything I've done here - trim work, new screens and frames for our porch and fencing in my backyard - I even used to nail the 1x6" rails to the 4x4 posts and it worked great. It is loud and my dogs are terrified of it, but it has never let me down.

If my father ever asks for it back, I already told my wife it will be on my Christmas list!
