  • Great tool, saves tons of time and fun to use
  • October 19, 2013
  • Recommended Product

I am a gun guy, so I like anything with a trigger. I am using this Mastershot to frame out my basement. I am using 2-1/2" Ramset nails with the galvanized PT coating (designed for use in PT wood). Green loads shoot all but about 1/4" of the nail into the concrete. Yellow loads bury the 2-1/2" nail. They are holding well and my walls are solid. This tool sure beats drilling and screwing in Tapcon's or Redheads.

Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, Accurate, Good Size & Weight

  • QUIET! Easy-to-use (even for a female), and moderately light

I was nervous this Ramset was going to be LOUD and reverberate in my basement, but it's really not more than a moderate thud. I'd argue it's quieter than my air compressor.Also, it's moderately light (feels substantial in your hands but isn't overly heavy), easy to operate, and gets the job done. And loading/unloading is quite easy.Couldn't be more pleased with it thus far.

Pros: Easy to Use, Sturdy, Accurate, Good Size & Weight

I found this product to be very easy to use. No issues just load, press and fire. I bought 2 different loads to make sure I had enough power to do the job.

Used this on 4 or 5 jobs now without a hitch. I was surprised how quiet this thing is. No more yelling fire in the hole!

Big upgrade from old hammer type one I owned 15 years ago. Fires good, the longest nails may not fully penetrate concrete but you can simply hammer them in the final 1/4 inch. Saved a lot of time installing insulation board with powering the strapping boards into foundation wall.

Pros: Durable, Good Size & Weight

  • Works as it Should

Works as it should. As with any tool; safety first. Capable of 3" but I haven't needed to shoot over 2-1/2" with mine. Match your load to the nail & the nail to the need. Sturdily built. Not overly loud but do wear ear/eye protection.

Pros: Easy to Use

I thought about getting this for my last basement project and did not. Boy was it a mistake. This time, doing double the amount of nailing in cement through 2x4s took only a fraction of the time that I spent during my last project. Also worked great going into cinder block to secure junction boxes to the block wall.
