Following the recent trend of top-of-the-line pneumatic gun rollouts, Campbell Hausfeld just released three new units bearing the CH blue: from biggest to smallest, the CHN70899 3-1/2” framing nailer, the CHN70699 15-gauge nailer, and the CHN70299 18-gauge brad nailer. Can you guess the first highlighted feature of the new guns? If you said “targeting laser,” you nailed it.
CH wins the coveted “Laser Award” for being the first manufacturer to throw a laser sight on a full-sized framing nailer. We’re not exactly sure why they did it, but the CHN70899 proudly sports one.
Other more logical-sounding additions include an on-board stud finder in the 15-gauge model, a tethered no-mar tip in all three, and an “anti-dry fire” mechanism that won’t let the CH guns fire without a fastener in the slot.
All kidding aside, they do look interesting. We’re curious to see how they’ll stack up to more conventional models and what happens to the laser and stud finder when the gun gets dropped off a roof, but we’re sure the folks at CH have thought of that already. The new lineup’ll start hitting local haunts soon, so we’ll keep an eye out for actual street pricing.
