Galvanized Coil Roofing Nails.Powerful and Accurate Nail Delivery
Amazingly powerful, the RN46-1 is capable of delivering 410 in./lbs. of force at 100 psi. And with the ability to drive up to 100 nails per minute, the RN46-1 offers two firing methods: contact trip and sequential trip. Contact trip uses a bouncing motion along the workpiece and is great for working on large areas, such as roofs. Sequential trip firing is for precision applications, such as finish work. For shingle work, the RN46-1 features an integrated, tool-less gauge used to control shingle spacing.

Get the Right Depth for the Job
The RN46-1 allows for fast, tool-less depth-of-drive adjustments with its integrated depth dial. The dial has five different settings for finding the perfect driving depth for the job, including flush mount driving, shallow driving, and countersinking.

High-Capacity, Quick-Load Magazine Reduces Downtime
To help eliminate downtime, the RN46-1 has a high-capacity magazine that holds up to 120 coil nails. It accepts nails with a shank diameter of 0.120 and a length of 3/4 inch to 1-3/4 inch.

A zero nail lock-out feature eliminates dry firing when the magazine is empty, and it also indicates when it is time to reload. What’s more, a patented single-action side-load canister allows for quick and easy nail loading. You simply slide the magazine door open, load the new coil of nails, and close the magazine door–it’s that easy.

Designed for Comfort and Durability
The RN46-1 Coil Roofing Nailer is constructed of tough magnesium for durability on the jobsite. What’s more, magnesium is lightweight, so this nailer is easy on your arms.

The nosepiece features a carbide insert for durability and long tool life, while wear guards and skid pads provide protection from damage caused by working on abrasive surfaces.

The over-molded grip provides maximum comfort and gripping ability in any weather condition. That means this roofing nailer can be used for a variety of different applications–inside and out–including exterior drywall, vapor barrier installation, vinyl siding, fiber cement siding, composition roofing, and more.

The Bostitch RN46-1 Coil Roofing Nailer measures 10-1/2 x 4-5/8 x 10-5/8 inches (LxWxH) and weighs 4.8 pounds. It is backed by a seven-year limited warranty.

Extremely Impressed Just finished laying 42 sq with this gun, and I have nothing but praise. Well balanced and one of the lightest guns I have ever used. In 42 sq, one jam and about dozen nails left proud. Standard home store nails work very well in this gun and are easy and cheap to find. The tool-less depth of drive works just fine and the side-loading feature is great, very fast and easy. When it is out of nails, you know it, it will stop firing.Yes, this is a contact “bump” nailer, and if you are…

Oustanding I’m really surprised with the first review of this gun. I had a buddy buy one, it gave him problems, he exchanged it the next day and his second gun has been flawless. I chalk it up to it being a new product on the market and to some of the initial guns having production glitches.

Had fun with this gun I purchased the nail gun about three weeks ago. I am a foreman on a flat roofing crew who shingles on the weekends and on a few jobs that shingles are required. Last weekend I used the gun to shingle a 18sq ranch and was very enthused about how the gun ran. The gun never skipped, misfired, or jammed. I then took it to work to finish a shingle job on a 62sq roof. I dont like to use my own personal equipment on company time, but the way that the gun performed I knew that it would make the job…
