Dewalt announced a new 23 gauge pneumatic pin nailer, DWFP2350K, which they say addresses a common user frustration with other models. The Dewalt DWFP2350K is said to be the world’s first 23 gauge pin nailer with tool-free jam release mechanism.
It can set pin nails 5/8″ to 2″ long, and has an oil-free motor to help keep work surfaces stain-free.
Additional features include adjustable nail depth setting, low nail lockout with bypass that drives in remaining nails, reversible belt hook, and dual trigger. The nailer operates at pressures of 70-100 PSI and its magazine can fit up to 135 nails. It measures 8.8″ tall, 9.2″ long, and 2.7″ wide and weighs 2.5 lbs.
ETA: October 2018
The nailer comes with a carrying case and 2 non-marring tips.

“Why hasn’t Dewalt come out with a cordless pin nailer yet?”
Well, I imagine it’s same reason why there aren’t many cordless pin nailers currently on the market. I’m under the impression that it’s because they cannot be made compact or light enough yet, at least not enough to increase their appeal compared to working with pneumatic tools.
Look at the size difference between Makita’s cordless pin nailer and my Hitachi air pin nailer.
The Ryobi cordless pin nailer is even larger.
There’s something to be said about cordless convenience. But a lot of times, air nailers are smaller, lighter, and more economical.
Dewalt’s claims give their nailer some interesting competitive distinctions.
My Hitachi pin nailer has a smaller max pin nail size (1-3/8″), but when I bought it, I figured that if I needed longer nails than that, I’d be better off stepping up to brad nails. That has been holding true.
I don’t know if the new Dewalt pin nailer’s oil-free motor or tool-free jam release mechanism is enough to woo me, but they give potential buyers unique reasons to look more closely at this model.
