Concrete Nails

I've been working on Kitchen Remodels for many years and have never ran into this:
I tore out a kitchen and the dishwasher end panel was secured into the slab by what looked like 16 gauge nails from a nail gun??? They held really well. I have always tried to use regular concrete nails or powder (Remington), or an adhesive.

Has anyone seen or heard of a tool like this? Like I said, it was definitely about 16 gauge nails (brads) and penetrated the concrete very cleanly.

Thanks

Well...a search showed both 14 and 16 gauge nailers for concrete...but I think they all used t-head nails. What does the head of yours look like?

yes, the nails I saw were T head. I don't have the gun, I want to get one. I'll try to do a search.
These nails held better than any concrete nail I've seen. And they enter concrete cleanly, no blow out.

Thanks
