Dewalt has (finally!) officially announced their new 20V Max Atomic series cordless pin nailer, model DCN623.
The new Dewalt cordless pin nailer is designed to drive 23 gauge pin nails 5/8″ to 1-1/2″ long, and in a variety of woods. It can fully sink pins into hardwoods, such as solid oak.
It features a brushless motor and can drive up to 2,000 pins per charge on average (1-inch nails into 2X SPF lumber with a DCB203 2Ah battery).
The nailer has a low nail lockout system, an LED indicator that informs users when it’s time to reload the magazine, and a tool-free jam release mechanism. Depth adjustments are also tool-free.
Pricing and Availability
Dewalt has not provided MSRP pricing, what follows is the lowest street pricing I found at the time of this posting.
Tool-Only (DCN623B): $249
Kit (DCN623D1): $299
The kit comes with a charger, carrying bag, and (1) 2.0Ah battery.
Dewalt says that the new nailers will be available wherever their 20V Max Atomic series cordless power tools are sold, which usually includes Home Depot and independent dealers.
ETA: May 2022
Key Features & Specs

This is an entirely cordless battery-powered nailer that does not require the use of hoses, air compressors, or disposable gas cartridges.
What do you think? Are you excited to finally add a Dewalt 20V Max cordless pin nailer to your kit?
I think this might be a good candidate for pairing with Dewalt’s 20V Max PowerStack battery.
I’m slightly concerned about the weight, but not really. Milwaukee’s M12 cordless pin nailer weighs 3.3 lbs, presumably without a battery, and this new Dewalt Atomic series nailer weighs 4.1 lbs, which I would also presume is for the tool-only.
Cordless pin nailers have yet to match the size of air nailers, but they provide hose-free convenience.
The Milwaukee can drive pin nails up to 1-3/8″, while the Dewalt can drive up to 1-1/2″ pins into solid oak.
The additional capacity of the Dewalt makes it capable of driving slightly longer nails, and might give it a bit more headroom when it comes to power and performance when driving other nail sizes. Time will tell.
It will be interesting to see how well the new Dewalt Atomic performs.
