Fastner Question...Roundhead in Cliphead gun

I just purchased a Senco FramePro 701XP Clipped Head Nailer. I perfered to get a round head nailer but the person that sold it to me said, "The clipped head nailer will shoot the round head off set nails as long as they have the same angle (30 degrees in this case) without any problem."
Hey, great and I bought it.
After getting home I started thinking. Was I was given the right info or not?
Anyone heard of using a offset round head nail in a clipped head nailer?

Welcome to the forums. The clipped head framer will not feed the round head nails properly. The 701xp takes clipped head 30 degree nails with paper collation. I'd take it back and ask him to show you how the round head nails will feed in the gun.

The Paslode nail heads are off set heads and 30 degrees with paper collation and fit in the nailers magazine fine.

I was thinking of taking it back and have him show me...

Not sure about the senco but I can tell you without a doubt that my Bostitch chokes on round heads. Supply house sent the wrong nails and I didn't realize it as I was framing some soffits. Every other nail misfired. Thought it was my nailer at first until I realized what had happened.

Got the scoop...

From Senco.

The Frame Pro 701XP (clippedhead nailer) will shoot 30
degree round head nails with paper collation.

The nails are the Senco RoundStrip Nails. The nail heads are off set and the shank of the nails are very close to each other.

Paslode also has the RoundDrive Nails that are 30 degree, off set head, etc...

Thanks,
Donnie

Donnie: So basically they are clipped head nails without being deformed. You still won't have a 100% circle of cap on top of the nail centered as intended for "round" head nails. Interesting, though. Even their website doesn't extoll the virtues of shooting the round head nails. It only says, clipped head. Good luck.
