We operate seven Senco GT90CH framing nailers at work. They use the commonly used battery/gas cell system.
Usually about half of them are not operating and are off being fixed at any given time.
Sometimes a local guy who knows a little about them and some times back to the Senco supplier. :(

One of the guys had a Dewalt DCN692N a few years ago and it only lasted a short while and Dewalt just said it wasn't worth fixing.
The firing system is a mechanical flywheel and it can bump nail afaik.

Hikoki make the NR1890DBL framing nailer. It has a bump nailing facility.
The firing mechanism is an air spring.
It's a new concept afaik?
Does anyone know if it is reliable?

We have 3 air nailers in the workshop and they rarely give trouble.
So this "air spring" that hikoki mentions sounds promising to me and perhaps the way forward. :D
