    Evening,
    I'm about to finish an arris rail / featheredge fence and am thinking of buying a nail gun to put up the featheredge boards.
    I've been looking for an excuse as I often need one, but it needs to do many things as I'm a DIYer so cant justify framing, 16ga, 18ga, 23ga etc.
    I'm thinking of a 16ga gun, probably Ryobi airstrike as I have some one+ batteries.
    Is this up to the job?

    no you need a collated [angled nails with around 3mm shank 15 gauge
    lower number greater the size
    i have both the ryobi 18 and 16 gauge both are not sutable
    i use the 16 for when overlap fence panel segments drop and need pushing up and pining back
