this is mainly for laying vinyl planks flooring on Stairs. so i need to glue down and then some nails.otaknap wrote: ↑ It really depends on what kind of work you are planning on. I think the most popular is the 18 gauge nail gun but it won't work on some of the heavier duty nailing like roofing or fine carpentry work.
Regardless I highly recommend the ryobi 18g nail gun. Its actually on sale now but without a battery so if you already have some ryobi tools and batteries, this is a great addition. I know it goes on sale frequently so just search the hot deals thread to see how much it went on sale for in the past. Similar to you, I wanted a nail gun without a compressor. This guy is so portable, fast and powerful enough for the weekend diyer.

Or borrow one from a friend. Loaned one to a neighbour so he could finish a (non-floating) canoe to hang on his wall.

The Ryobi is the best of the Ridgid/Ryobi/Milwaukee that I have used, and better than the Dewalt I used briefly.

I mostly use my dewalt 18ga and 15ga brushless nailers and they work great. They must be like 2 or 3 years old now, so I think they were the first gen out.

double check what kind of size nails you need and see if it's compatible with the 18gauge ryobi one that I posted but from the sounds of it, I can't imagine you needing very heavy duty ones. I didn't even think that you need to nail down vinyl planks but not sure how it works in a stair installation.

If you are using PL, just do a good job gluing it down and forget about the nails. Those nail will do nothing for you on vinyl.
