  • So glad I bought this
  • March 10, 2012
  • Recommended Product

We are finishing our basement in our new house. We also finished our basement in our previous house and drilled every hole into the concrete floor to use tapcon screws. I actually destroyed a drill doing this. The bit fused itself to the chuck and the drill had to be thrown out. I bought a DIYer video serious and saw this Ramset being used. I was aprehensive at first because of the "ammunition". I'm so glad I bought it. It has saved us so much time! The tool is very easy to use and has fired correctly on every shot. The only drawback is I can't find the powder loads in stores (PA or WV), so, I have to order them on line. I used my last one last night and had to order online. I have two more walls to build and now will have to wait for the loads to be delivered.

Attaching the pressure treated 2X4 to steal columns or securing flake board to the concrete floor, this gun worked great and saved a lot of time for me for a basement finish project.Since it does not have a power adjustment level, I am using red loads most of the time. So far, I’ve fired about 60 loads with no misses using 2”-3” with and without washer pins. There were some that I had to hammer in about 1/8” but that’s expected since the steel and concrete density is not always consistent.Tasks I used to achieve with rotary hammer and SDS bits are now done by this single gun in fraction of the time.It needs no charging or electric connection, a true mobile tool couldn’t get better than that.One very important feature it offers is that I cannot press the trigger until the tool is firmly pressed against the target and that brings peace of mind for me.Construction is solid and grip feels good in the hands. Eyes and ears protection is not just a good idea but rather must.Overall, I have no complaints, at this price it’s a steal. How it’s saving time and cost for me gets my highest recommendation for extreme DIYers.

Pros: Durable, Easy to Use, All In One, Sturdy, Accurate, Strong, Good Size & Weight

  • Great tool, saves tons of time and fun to use

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.

This Ramset gun is very easy to operate. Simply load pin; load charge; set material in place; and shoot.Ramset makes a variety of pins for different applications. This method of fastening is much easier than drilling and inserting screws or bolts. It provides a positive, solid anchor for many applications.In the construction trade, I have used Ramset and their products for many years. I have always found the quality and reliability to be second to none.

  • Worth the upgrade

Bought the hammer shot cheap version and the capsule got stuck after only 3 shots. I took it back because I couldn't get it out and exchanged for the same one thinking it was a fluke. This time it lasted only 4 shots and did the same thing. I got my money back and purchased this one. This one is AWESOME! It worked great and was so much quieter!! I total recommend this one over the hammer shot.

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.

  • QUIET! Easy-to-use (even for a female), and moderately light
  • April 01, 2014
  • Verified Purchase & Recommended Product

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.

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

For the price it works great. I have ran 30 3" pressure treated nails through the gun. Using dry PT 2x4 i get any where from 1/4" - 1/2" of the nail sticking out using yellow shots. I follow up with a green shot to get it down. In the wet 2x a yellow shot buried the nail 1/4" below the wood. For the price and as little as I am using it, it is a great value. If I had a whole basement or need to use it daily, I would step up to the bigger gun.

  • 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
