The next thing for you to do is determine what you intend to use your new coil nailer for? Each nailer has its own uses. Coil Framing Nailers are larger packing more punch, driving in nails averaging 2 ½ to 3 ½ inch in size which is ample size nails for framing. I have never used over a 3 inch nail in all the years I have been framing. A distinct advantage of using a coil framing nailer over a stick framing nailer is that the magazine hold considerably more nails.
As to the safety features of these nailers, they usually have a safe nose which needs to be depressed before its trigger is engaged and be pulled. For most types, they will also include an anti-marring tip made of rubber. This tip is made to be slipped on top of the nose's tip to prevent the nailer from possibly giving damage to the wood and molding which is being nailed.
Roofing and siding nailers are of similar size, roofing coil nailer will often have adjustable shingle guides to help keep your work consistent. If you are looking at a gun for dry wall, fibre cement or any project that marks easily you need to be sure the nose of the gun is not sharp and aggressive. On the other hand an aggressive nose is very handy on most other projects making it easy for the tip of the coil nailer to grip to the surface you are nailing when angle nailing.
