Why are most of flooring nailers actuated by hammer?
I think pneumatic nailers which are only actuated by trigger are easier and more save labour than nailers with hammer.

I found that in the spots where I used a 16 gauge finish nailer because I couldn't use my hammer-actuated nailer, the boards immediately spring back, and there are gaps. The hammer-actuated nailer would pull the boards in as much as 1/4" -- pretty sweet. Sure, less functionality near the edges, but worth it, I'd say.
