I have collated screws from quik drive (simpson) can I use them with senco?

May be a silly question but I already have quik drive 2 1/2" screws from simpson strong tie but don't have screw gun so wondering if these screws are compatible with senco screw guns?

Please give more details as to which senco guns are compatible?

also I think as long as I have compatible attachment from quik drive I can use any screw gun (motor)??/ correct me if am wrong.

I have 2 Senco drivers and a quick look at the collated screws you mention says NO, not the same arrangement. Senco screws are pressed through a strip of plastic and use a toothed gear feed (my attempt to describe them). Your collated screws are taped together in a strip and fed like a nail gun.

You may be able to rent the gun for your nails. Or sell what you have and start over.

The pros will be along so lets see what they say.
