pneumatic finish nailers

Hello Everybody,

I am going to buy a finish gun. I've used Senco's SFN40 in the past and it's a great gun. They have a new model the 41XP, it replaces the SFN40. Well before I buy it, I just wanted to get some opinions on other brands.

What is the best? Not worried about price just quality. This will be a production gun used everyday. Will mostly be used for trim with some cabinet constuction.

Also the gun must be oil free, as most of the work is with finished hardwoods. Inside these houses I can have NO oil in the exhast air.

Also must have an angled nail guide, so I can get into corners easily.

Thank you for your help.

I understand that there are oil-free guns out there, but I don't have any experience with them. I have used the conventional Bostich and Porter-Cable for many years. I have never had a problem with oil on the material from the gun with trim nailers. I used a Bostich N60FN 15 gage nailer until the paint started to wear off. In its old age it sometimes skips a feed, but I don't use it everyday anymore. It is kind of retired.
