When you work on a finish nailer, you need the head to be just below the board's surface so it can be filled easily with the nail filler. If your nails haven't been sunk completely, you can use a hammer and a nail set to drive them in completely (although, this is extra work which you shouldn't have to do if you do things right). The problem which you usually get is caused by either an insufficient amount of pressure from the compressor, or the depth on the adjustment dial which wasn't set correctly. If you're not sure with the settings you need to use, consult your operating manual and follow the instructions on how to correctly modify the depth adjustment.
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.
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.
