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.
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.
I have fallen victim in the past buying cheap imports thinking I had found a bargain but in fact it was just the opposite, those imports did not even finish the first project I was working on at the time of purchase.
I have spent my life as a carpenter on building sites making a living from the talents of the trade that I posses and the vast array of quality tools in my kit. They say a good tradesman should never blame his tools! Which is true, and I have never met a good tradesman with low quality tools.
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.
