Anyone with experience with the Costco nail gun set sold under the Thorsen Tool Co name? 3 nailers for $140

No, but I'd suspect the price is likely reflective of quality. Remember the old adage, if it sounds too go to be true, it probably is.

Of course, Costco has a very liberal return policy so it might be worth giving it a shot.

I hope it's not too good to be true, but I know what you mean. I ordered it only because of Costco's return policy. Thanks for your input.

I'd guess these are in the same class as the cheap brad gun a friend bought from Harbor Freight and later gave me when he traded up to a Senco. They'll lack some features of the better guns, may not work quite as reliably (jamming more frequently, for example) and must be thought of as disposable because repair parts will be totally unavailable, but they will save labor over hand-nailing everything, and are probably a good value for the occasional user.

Starting a kitchen remodel. Plan to use the nail guns for this project then Craig's List or something. Yep, I'm the occasional user.
